President Basescu dismisses ex-king as ‘Russian lackey’

July 2011 - From the Print Edition

Romania’s president has launched a stinging attack on the country’s former ruler, King Mihai of Romania, whom he described as a “Russian lackey.” Traian Basescu called the King’s abdication an “act of betrayal of national interest”. He added that Marshal Antonescu – who was the PM at that time – was to blame for anti-Semitic measures such as the deportation of Jews to Transnistria, but that people must not forget that Romania had a head of state. “To one we gave fortunes; the other we call a war criminal. Why? Just because King Mihai of Romania was a Russian lackey?” Basescu said on a TV show.
