Moscow: 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."
