Ru on the issue.
The situation is difficult. The case is not only about statements, everything is much deeper. Monuments are constantly demolished there by the ‘wind’, as well as memorials to the Holocaust victims, marauding acts at the cemeteries. There are a lot of such acts. Beside that, there are leaders of some Jewish organizations in Ukraine, who support this theme. Jews are allegedly guilty. National armistice is needed. I relate this to fight for votes, share among voters. Politicians still actively discuss a historical moment, when a Jewish man shot down Petlyura at a restaurant in 1920s.
Let us see what this will generate in Ukraine. They say of a yoke because of a PM of Jewish descent. Russia has also had state leaders of Jewish decent for the latest 25 years. In particular, Primakov is the most famous one. But this has not ever sparked any anti-Semitic anger, which happens in Russia.
Our MPs have delivered such statements: Milonov, Tolstoy… But then they apologized.
