ST. PETERSBURG, May 24, 19:47 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that heir to the British throne Prince Charles’s behavior was “not royal” if he really compared the Russian leader with Adolf Hitler.
According to media reports earlier in the week, Prince Charles had a conversation with a Jewish survivor of the WWII and as they touched on the issue of Crimea’s recent merger with Russia, the throne heir said the Russian leader was doing the same as Hitler used to do.
Putin said in an interview with leading world news agencies on Saturday that he did not hear himself the unfriendly words of Prince Charles.
“This is definitely unacceptable if this is true and I believe he understands it as well,” Putin said. “I know personally him and members of the Royal family and this was not the royal behavior.”
“In such cases I always remember a good saying - You are wrong if you are angry,” Putin said. “Pass it [the saying] to the British prime minister [David Cameron] and Prince Charles.”
Crimea, where most residents are Russians, refused to recognize the self-proclaimed Ukrainian authorities. Crimeans overwhelmingly voted in a referendum on March 16 to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. The reunification deal with Moscow was signed on March 18.
