U.S. policy like Hitler's 'Final Solution': Russia

STORY: Lavrov, who caused an international furore last year with remarks about Hitler, also said Washington was using the same tactic as Napoleon and the Nazis in trying to subjugate Europe in order to destroy Russia.

The 'Final Solution' was Hitler's Holocaust blueprint, which led to the systematic murder of 6 million Jews, as well as members of other minorities.

Lavrov has caused outrage before with remarks about Hitler. Last May he said the Nazi leader had had "Jewish blood," drawing angry protests from Israel.

Lavrov also accused the United States of preparing the ground for the conflict in Ukraine as part of what he called a hybrid war against Moscow.
