The leader of a Russian region known for his anti-Semitic comments is at it again, according to the Union of Councils for Soviet Jews. Nikolai Kondratenko, recently awarded a medal “for outstanding service to Russia,” recently said Zionism is the “most aggressive and bloody force” in the world since the defeat of Nazi Germany. Kondratenko also said “Zionists and American imperialists” are cooperating to incite ethnic conflict in Russia and divide the country.
