Manifestations of anti-Semitism in Ukraine are mostly of hooligan nature and there’s no consistency in them. Israeli Ambassador Eliav Belotserkovsky said this at a meeting of “Diplomats with open collars” press club held in Kyiv on Tuesday.
“If we compare Ukraine with other European countries, manifestations of anti-Semitism are less frequent, and those cases that actually take place are more of a bully than consistent nature”, Belotserkovsky said.
The ambassador thanked the Ukrainian government for its firm position in combating any manifestations of anti-Semitism across the country.
Previously, during his visit to Israel, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the Jewish community in Crimea faced a serious threat due to the repressions launched by the occupant regime succeeded by promotion of anti-Semitism.
