Florida Democrat Congressman Jared Moskowitz, who is Jewish, called out Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene for her baseless allegations that the Ukrainian people were Nazis.

Moskowitz challenged Greene to visit a Holocaust museum to gain a better understanding of the historical context.

Putin

Youtube

In February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin justified Moscow’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine by stating his intention to “denazify” the country.

Criticism

Youtube

This assertion has been met with widespread criticism, with many viewing it as a pretext for Russia’s encroachment on Ukraine’s sovereignty.

Heritage

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who has Jewish heritage and lost family members in the Holocaust, has strongly condemned Putin’s denazification narrative.

Nazis in Ukraine

At a House Oversight Committee session focused on China, Greene referenced two articles concerning Nazis in Ukraine.

Time magazine

Youtube

One article, published in Time magazine in January 2021, was titled “Like, Share, Recruit: How a White-Supremacist Militia Uses Facebook to Radicalize and Train New Members.” The second article, from NBC News in March 2022, was titled “Ukraine’s Nazi problem is real, even if Putin’s ‘denazification’ claim isn’t.”

Misinformation

“It’s amazing to me that just in a few years time, it’s now considered misinformation to talk about the Nazis in Ukraine,” Greene said at the hearing. Newsweek attempted to contact Greene’s office through email and Moskowitz’s office by phone to request a statement.

Greene’s remarks

Youtube

Following Greene’s remarks, Moskowitz, whose grandparents were Holocaust survivors, responded to her statements without directly mentioning the congresswoman by name by saying at the hearing: “There are no concentration camps in Ukraine…There’s no gas chambers. There’s no ovens…They’re not trying to erase a people.”

“Stop bringing up Nazis and Hitler,” he said. “The only people who know about Nazis and Hitler are the 10 million people and their families who lost their loved ones, a generation people who were wiped out. It is enough of this disgusting behavior using Nazis as propaganda.”

Despicable

The congressman continued: “You want to talk about Nazis? Get yourself over to the Holocaust museum. You go see what Nazis did. It’s despicable that we use that and we allow it and we sit here like somehow it’s regular.”

Nazi elements

Greene has cited the presence of alleged Nazi elements in Ukraine as a reason to oppose providing further assistance to the country in Eastern Europe.

Decreasing

With the Russian-Ukrainian conflict now entering its third year, Republican lawmakers in the U.S. have shown decreasing support for continued financial aid.

95 billion

Despite the Senate’s approval of a $95 billion funding package aimed at aiding Ukraine in its conflict against Russia, supporting Israel in its battle with Hamas, and assisting Taiwan in countering Chinese aggression, the House has yet to take action on the bill.

Mike Johnson

Instead, House Speaker Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana, unveiled the details of three separate funding proposals on Wednesday, focusing on providing financial support to Ukraine, Israel, and the Indo-Pacific region.

Antisemitic

Greene recently posted on X, previously known as Twitter. “It’s antisemitic to make Israeli aid contingent on funding Ukrainian Nazis. These should be separate bills.”

Fact-checked

A community note fact-checked Greene’s post, providing readers with additional context and usually challenging the claims made by the X user. The note read: “Ukraine is not ‘Ukrainian Nazis.’ This is a false claim from Russian propaganda. Combining security funding for different states in one bill is not ‘antisemitic.'”
