Putin: Neo-Nazis in Ukraine committed ethnic cleansing

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that "neo-Nazis in Ukraine" committed "crimes against civilians" and "ethnic cleansing."

"Forgetting the lessons of history leads to the repetition of terrible tragedies," Putin wrote in a letter commemorating International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On January 27, 1945, the Soviet Red Army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp.

"Any attempt to revise the contribution of our country to the Great Victory actually means justifying the crimes of Nazism" and "opens the way for the revival of its deadly ideology," Putin pointed out.
