“Putin Should Be Tried for Genocide”

Putin should be tried for genocide in Chechnya, son of Holocaust victim says

A leader of the Jewish community in Germany, whose own father died at the hands of the Nazis in Auschwitz, said that Russia’s Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, was guilty of genocide in Chechnya and should be put on trial at the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

Michel Friedman, the former president of the European Jewish Congress and a leader of Germany’s Central Jewish Council, said he holds out little hope that this will happen because the international community is not prepared to bring charges against the leader of a major country.

What Putin “did in Chechnya,” Friedman said, “is genocide of the purest kind,” but instead of expressing outrage, “the whole world is silent.”
