BERLIN, April 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Germany’s Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble has denied equating Russia with Hitler's Third Reich. He told German public broadcaster ARD on Thursday that remarks likening Crimea’s reunification with Russia to Adolf Hitler seizing the Sudetenland in 1938 had been taken out of context, .
“I'm not so stupid that I would compare Hitler with anybody,” he said, adding that half a sentence had been reported from a talk to a student group in Berlin, discussing events in Crimea.
Russia protested to Germany on Thursday over Schaeuble’s remarks. "We consider such pseudo-historical references by the German minister provocative," Russia's foreign ministry said in a statement. "His comparisons are a gross manipulation of historical facts.
“A government official holding a senior ministerial position in Germany must be fully aware of what he says,” the ministry added.
