On the eve of the Rosh Hashanah celebration, operatives of the Security Service of Ukraine stopped the activities of an internet propagandist in Uman.

As Kateryna Droga from the SBU Department in the Cherkasy region told "Ukrayina Moloda", in the time of mass arrival of Hasidic pilgrims for the annual celebration, this man promoted incitement to hostility on a national basis.

"It is established that a resident of Uman posted messages on his personal page in one of the banned social networks calling for inciting racial and religious hatred against representatives of Jewish nationality," says Kateryna.

And he adds that the discriminatory articles humiliated the honor and dignity of Hasidic pilgrims. Some publications provoked the emergence of ethnic hatred.

During the search at the propagandist's place of residence, mobile devices and computer equipment with evidence of illegal activities were found.

Within the framework of open criminal proceedings under Part 1 of Article 161 (violation of equal rights of citizens depending on their race, nationality, religious beliefs, disability and other grounds) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, investigative actions are continuing to establish all the circumstances of the offense and bring other perpetrators to justice.

Exposure and documentation of illegal activities carried out jointly with the National Police and under the leadership of the Uman District Prosecutor's Office.
