Georgia compares Russian actions to Nazi Germany

Amid talks with the EU in Brussels, Georgia has compared Moscow’s treatment of ethnic Georgians to Nazi German actions against the Jews. “Russia shows absolutely unacceptable behaviour, pursuing a kind of ethnic cleansing policy, exercising xenophobic rhetoric and their deeds very much look like the Nazi Germany time in 1930,” Georgian Secretary of State for Euro-Atlantic Integration Giorgi Baramidze told a news conference.

He added however that Tbilisi was ready for dialogue on normalising ties. Several hundred Georgians living in Russia have been deemed illegal immigrants and deported amid a stand-off sparked by the brief detention in Georgia of four Russian servicemen on suspicion of espionage.
