President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky believes that there is no anti-Semitism in Ukraine, and if there is, its level is the lowest.

He said this in an interview with the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung on May 29, published on the website of the head of state. Censor.net.

Answering a journalist's question about the fact that propaganda being spread about Ukraine, that it is allegedly an anti-Semitic, fascist state, Zelensky said: "I believe that I am the showcase and the answer that there is no anti-Semitism in Ukraine, that it is at the lowest level. Because there are no perfect forms, there are no perfect people. But this is the fact that anti-Semitism in Ukraine is at the lowest level compared to any European country. I believe that I am the answer. I know that anti-Semitism took place in the Soviet Union, it's true. I know stories about my relatives, my father – people were afraid of it, yes, it was present. But in modern, independent Ukraine, all this has changed a lot. That's why I think we don't have it. Sometimes there are provocations, but this happens anywhere," the president said.
