Los Angeles – Former U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton again expressed criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Clinton’s comments came a day after likening Putin’s actions in moving troops to the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine to Adolf Hitler’s decades ago in the Nazi era in Czechoslovakia and Romania.
As noted in the report, Putin has stated the decision was made to protect ethnic Russians.
Clinton is quoted by the AP as stating on Tuesday during a fundraising luncheon in Long Beach, “Now if this sounds familiar, it’s what Hitler did back in the ’30s… Hitler kept saying, ‘They’re not being treated right. I must go and protect my people.’ And that’s what’s gotten everybody so nervous.”
Clinton further stated on Wednesday of her previous comments while giving a speech at the University of California, Los Angeles, “I just want everybody to have a little historic perspective. I am not making a comparison, certainly. But I am recommending that we perhaps can learn from this tactic that has been used before.”
