President Volodymyr Zelensky is surprised by the silence of the global Jewish community regarding the aggression of Russia, which shelled the second memorial to the victims of the Holocaust.

This is reported by Ukrayinska Pravda.

The president recalled that on March 26, near Kharkiv, the Russian military shelled the place of remembrance of mass shootings of Jews during World War II.

"In their signature inhuman style, they "denazified" the Holocaust Memorial in Drobytsky Yar.

During the Second World War, the Nazis shot about 20 thousand people in this place. After 80 years, they are killed for the second time. And this is what Russia is doing," Volodymyr Zelensky said.

The president said that the memorial menorah in Drobitsky Yar was smashed by Russian shells.

"This is another question for the entire Jewish community of the world: how many more crimes against our common memory of the Holocaust will Russia be allowed to commit on our Ukrainian land?"

On March 1, Russian troops hit the Kyiv TV tower and damaged the memorial complex in Babyn Yar.

More than 100,000 Kyiv residents are buried in Babyn Yar, the vast majority of whom were Jews.

In the Talmud, bone desecration is called a peculiar form of murder.

After the Russian attack on Ukraine, we have were forced to watch for 6 days how residents of Ukraine are being killed, cities and towns are being destroyed, and now they are also desecrating the places of mass graves of victims of Nazism.

The United Jewish community of Ukraine strongly condemns the military aggression of the Russian Federation and the desecration of Babyn Yar.

The rocket landed at a distance of 200 meters from the territory of Babyn Yar, however, this does not change the essence of the statement.
