Israel's Ambassador to Ukraine Joel Lyon called on the Ukrainian authorities to legislate a definition of anti-Semitism developed by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA). The Ambassador wrote about this on Twitter.

"I welcome Serbia's decision to adopt the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism and once again call on Ukraine, the Cabinet of Ministers, President Volodymyr Zelensky, and the Parliament to adopt it. A clear definition helps better combat anti-Semitism," the diplomat writes.

Note that IHRA has the following definition: "Anti-Semitism is a certain perception of Jews that can be expressed as hatred of Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-Semitism are directed towards Jewish or non-Jewish people and/or their property, at Jewish public institutions and religious sites."
