One of the music groups on Situational Festival in the center of Kyiv performed a song that touched on the top of anti-Semitism. In this regard, the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine sent a statement to the police, the JCU reports on Telegram.

Yesterday, on October 14, a video appeared on the Internet, in which the group Closed Society and its friends performs the song "Arsen you Avakov, will protect us from Soros, Moksha, fa***ts and jews." The concert itself was held under the slogan "Let's repeat Koliivshchyna".

"During the Koliivshchyna, the Haidamaks killed more than 10,000 Jews in Uman alone. According to legend, that is why Rabbi Nachman ordered to be buried there. Thus, the call for the murder of Jewish people was recorded, which is a manifestation of anti-Semitism and incitement to ethnic hatred," the Jewish Confederation said in a statement.

In connection with the incident, JCU sends a statement to the Main Directorate of the National Police of Kyiv.

As it was reported earlier, on October 7, President Volodymyr Zelensky signed the law "On Prevention and Counteraction to Anti-Semitism in Ukraine" № 1770-IX, which was adopted by the Verkhovna Rada in the second reading and in general.

The law, in particular, defines the term "anti-Semitism" and lists its manifestations. The law also contains a rule banning anti-Semitism and its manifestations.

Violation of the requirements of this law provides for civil, administrative and criminal liability. This concerns, in particular, the right to compensation for material and moral damage caused to a person as a result of anti-Semitism and its manifestations.

Anti-Semitism is one of the forms of national and religious intolerance and discrimination, which is expressed in hostility towards Jewish persons as representatives of a personified ethnic and religious group; public or state ideology, or state policy aimed at restricting the political and social rights of Jewish persons.
