At the moment, the regional police groups work in Uman. They are establishing the causes and circumstances of the conflict and provide a legal assessment of the actions of local officers.
Yesterday, Yeshiva World News reported that about 30 people with knives and clubs attacked Jews in Ukraine's Uman near the grave of Rabbi Nachman, on Friday night, January 10.
According to the witnesses, the attackers were armed with knives and clubs. It is noted that the brutal beating began after a minor dispute between one of the local Ukrainians and a Jew.
"The Ukrainian involved in the dispute called on his anti-Semitic friends to come and beat the Jews," Jew who spent Shabbos in Uman said.
Law enforcement officers, who arrived at the scene did not try to help, but "just stood and watched what was happening."
