The Jewish community of Ukraine called the ban of the mayor of Uman for holding of Rosh Hashanah to be a mild provocation of the interethnic conflict as PavlovskyNews reported.

“Unfortunately, we are forced to acknowledge that the position of city head of Uman Oleksandr Tsebriy looks like a conscious and intentional provocation of the interethnic conflict,” member of the Jewish community Nathan Nissim Ben-Nun wrote.

According to him, the mayor of Uman ignores the possibility to improve the economic state of the city and country during the pilgrimage.

Besides, the member of the community is sure that the leadership of the country will not allow the cancelation of the holiday and conversely, it will provide the proper organization of the arrival of the pilgrims and control over the observance of quarantine measures.

Earlier, Mayor of Uman Oleksandr Tsebriy stood against the arrival of Hasidim in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“The government predicts the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic exactly for September. That is why I stand against the visit of our city by the pilgrims this year,” Tsebriy stated.
