Iran’s state-run Fars News Agency smeared Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a lengthy antisemitic rant published on Thursday the Jerusalem Post reported.
The Farsi-language news service is managed by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, a designated terror organization.
The article, published on the site’s home page, describes Zelensky as a “hedonistic Jew” looking to “gain power and pleasure, using any kind of moral and financial corruption being committed.”
It slams the 44-year-old Zelensky for producing obscene films and supporting “marijuana, gambling and prostitution.”
The article goes on to claim that former U.S. President Donald Trump wanted to pursue friendlier relations with Moscow.
Implying that Trump had dirt on Zelensky, the article added, “undoubtedly, in addition to Zelensky’s need for US funding and military assistance, there were other hidden issues that kept Zelensky so silent in the face of repeated humiliation and forced him to continue interacting, especially given the close relationship with Trump and Jeffrey Epstein.”
Epstein, a well-connected Jewish financier, was a convicted sex-offender who was found hung in his jail cell.
The article also tied in American billionaire George Soros, a Hungarian-born Jew frequently linked to far-right conspiracy theories, as well as unnamed Ukrainian oligarchs, as if to suggest a mysterious cabal of wealthy Jews are responsible for the war.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine comes as international powers are closing in on a nuclear agreement with Iran.
Moscow cast new uncertainty on the Iranian nuclear talks by insisting on a written U.S. guarantee that Russian trade and military cooperation with Tehran not be impacted by Western sanctions on Russia.
