Anti-Semitic Leaflets Pasted on Kyiv Synagogue
Anti-Semitic leaflets have been pasted on the Rosenberg Synagogue and monument to Sholem Aleichem in Kyiv. The leaflets show the logo for the political party Svoboda, a portrait of Taras Shevchenko, and poems.
Leaflets with similar content were also found in the morning of March 19 near restaurants Tsymes and Haifa. The leaflets, in particular, contain a quotation from the works of Taras Shevchenko.
Svoboda called this action a provocation. MP Ruslan Koshulynskyi from Svoboda told Komentari that Svoboda had nothing to do with it.
“When Svoboda does an action, it always declares it and officially expresses its position. Information about this would have appeared on the official website of Svoboda,” he said.
Koshulynskyi also said that perhaps these leaflets were pasted by the same provocateurs who previously accused Svoboda in grabbing some cockades from Hungarian children in Uzhhorod.
