Putin and the Jews: Between philosemitism and antisemitism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

The Russian history of antisemitism is discussed through Putin’s relationship with Judaism and his political maneuvering between philosemitism and antisemitism. In the Russian context, Putin has expressed many Jew-friendly statements. However, the wars in Ukraine and Gaza have changed the tone to balance between the personal attachment to Lubovitch Judaism and political urges to blame Zelensky, a proxy Jew installed by the U.S.
