David Cameron compares Russia to Nazi Germany on eve of Putin meeting

A day before meeting with Vladamir Putin, David Cameron says  that the world must ‘learn the lessons of history’ and be prepared to step up sanctions against Russia

The Telegraph reports: David Cameron has compared Russia to Nazi Germany because of its actions in Ukraine on the eve of a tense meeting with Vladimir Putin.

Mr Cameron will on Saturday night challenge Mr Putin about Russia’s continued acts of aggression in Ukraine as it supplies heavy weapons and tanks to the separatists.

In a reference to World War II, Mr Cameron said that the world must “learn the lessons of history” and intervene to stop “a larger state bullying a smaller state”.

He said: “Russian action in Ukraine is unacceptable. We have to be clear about what we are dealing with. It is a large state bullying a smaller state in Europe.

“We have seen the consequences of that in the past and we should learn the lessons of history and make sure we don’t let it happen again.”
