Russia's foreign ministry on Thursday demanded an official explanation after Britain's Prince Charles reportedly compared President Vladimir Putin's actions in Ukraine to those of Hitler.


"If these words were really said, then undoubtedly they are not worthy of a future British monarch," foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said in Moscow.

"We have requested an official explanation from British authorities over the statements."
