Prince Charles: Putin Acts like Hitler Did


Prince Charles of England expressed himself in a rather unusual manner when he equated the acts of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to those of Adolf Hitler during World War Two, the Britsh Daily Mail reports. The words were expressed in a talk held by the prince at a Canadian immigration museum.

According to the reports, the Prince and his wife toured the museum accompanied by a 78-year-old volunteer whose family was partially killed during the Holocaust and when she told her story to the royals the Prince responded, “And now Putin is basically doing just what Hitler did.” The Royal Palace has refused to make an official response but a source in the palace said that, “The Prince held a private and empathic conversation with a woman who lost her family in the Holocaust.”
