The State Secretariate of Ukraine's foreign ministry initiates a disciplinary case due to possible anti-Semitic expressions by a Ukrainian consul in Hamburg. Minister Pavlo Klimkin reported that on Twitter.
'Anti-Semites and those instigating the ethnic hatred cannot remain the members of the civilized society or the Foreign Ministry', he wrote.
Earlier, pro-Russian blogger Anatoly Shariy said that an employee of the Consulate General of Ukraine in Hamburg, Vasyl Marushynets, posted anti-Semitic publications on his Facebook page.
It is noted that the diplomat's page can't be viewed by people who are not his friends in the network.
According to the blogger, among the posts of Marushynets one can see such anti-Semitic posts as "Jews proclaimed the war against Germany in 1934", "God, punish Jews", "Babi Yar. Not in Moscow in 1941, but in Ukraine in 1918 -1941, ""Jews - s**t "(the spelling of the author of the messages is preserved, - 112 International).
Marushynets also reported that his Facebook page was blocked more than once.
We recall, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine said that anti-Semitic provocations are often inspired by the Kremlin regime, which with the help of hybrid aggression tools is trying to shake the political situation in Ukraine.
Ukraine's Interior Minister Arsen Avakov promised "a principled and quick" reaction of law enforcement officers to discrimination and anti-Semitism.
