Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested to NBC News’ Megyn Kelly last week that Jews might have been to blame for alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election in the United States.
Putin made the remark, as quoted by the UK Daily Mail, in an interview with Kelly. After saying that he “couldn’t care less” about the claims of Russian interference, Putin suggested that someone pretending to be Russian could have been responsible: “Maybe they are not even Russians, but Ukrainians, Tatars or Jews, but with Russian citizenship, which should also be checked.”
