Ukrainian girl, three, gives Nazi salute and vows to ‘cut Russians’ while brandishing a huge knife in a shocking home video
A shocking video has emerged of a young girl brandishing a large knife while giving the Nazi salute with her other.
The youngster, who is not old enough to start school, can be heard shouting ‘Seig Heil’ or ‘hail victory’ while excitedly bouncing and raising her right arm in the Hitler salute.
Behind her, a computer screen displays a swastika on the backdrop of a Ukrainian flag.
Later, the disturbing footage the youngster – who is wearing a Hello Kitty t-shirt – can be heard shouting ‘Allahu Ekber’ (God Is Greater) while holding another knife.
A flag of the Islamic State is seen on a screen behind her, the Mirror reports.
The video has sparked widespread condemnation with many denouncing its use of a young child as a propaganda tool.
In one video, a voice can be heard in the background asking ‘Are you going to cut Russians?’ to which she replied ‘Da,’ meaning yes.
An exchange, spoken in Ukrainian, follows with the man asking: ‘What are you going to do?’
She replies: ‘I am going to cut Russians. Gladly.’
She wildly slashes the knife about while a man can be heard laughing in the background.
The sickening video bears shocking similarities to one, purporting to be released by ISIS, showing a baby-faced boy, beheading a teddy bear with a large knife.
He uses the blade to hack away at the teddy during the 30-second clip, uploaded onto YouTube before he raises his knife triumphantly into the air.
In that clip, the man behind the camera shouts ‘takfir!’ – a derogatory word used to describe non-believers.
The latest video has since been removed from social media but has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times on YouTube.
It attracted heated debate in the comments section between pro-Ukrainian and pro-Russian internet trolls attacking each other.
