Yad Vashem deplores the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which will inevitably lead to dire consequences.
We fear in particular for the wellbeing of innocent civilians and deplore any deliberate endangerment of their safety.
Moreover, the propagandist discourse accompanying the current hostilities is saturated with irresponsible statements and completely inaccurate comparisons with Nazi ideology and actions before and during the Holocaust. Yad Vashem condemns this trivialization and distortion of the historical facts of the Holocaust.
