Putin compares Ukrainian troops to Nazis

Says Nazis used same tactics against Russian civilians

(ANSA) - Moscow, August 29 - Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin on Friday compared Ukrainian troop tactics to those of the Nazis, "who surrounded our cities and shot directly at their citizens." The comment was made in a speech at the pro-Kremlin youth forum held each year at Lake Seliger.
    Meanwhile, NATO secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen said that Moscow is "resisting every effort to find a peaceful diplomatic solution".
    "Despite Moscow's claims to the contrary, it is clear that Russian troops have crossed the border into Ukraine and are operating within the country," Rasmussen said.
