Ukraine | Ukrainian anti-Semites intensified activity in Odessa

Odessa is a multinational city, a great contribution was made by Jews to its cultural development. After the right-wing coup in February 2014, the main focus of the Ukrainian fascists was directed towards the struggle against the Russians. But they do not forget the Jews too. Recently they have reminded their existence in Odessa. On December 25 inscriptions of offensive anti-Semitic content appeared on several buildings in Odessa. On the building of the former synagogue, where the regional archive is now, the inscription “Off the Jews, Ukraine for Ukrainians!” appeared, and at the entrance to the Museum of the Holocaust on Bolshaya Arnautskaya Street was written “The First Toast – for the Holocaust!” Both inscriptions were accompanied by Nazi symbols used by the Azov regiment and other Ukrainian right-wing radical groups.
The anti-Semitic inscriptions were quickly painted over. A spokesman for the local Jewish community “Chabad” Boleslav Kapulkin called on the police to immediate investigation to the incident. The police opened a case of incitement to national, racial or religious hatred and enmity. At the same time, the Odessa police do not react to similar Russophobic manifestations.

Ukraine | Cannibal in Ukrainian parliament

Ukrainian MP Yevhen Rybchinski, elected from Poroshenko’s block, said on November 23 in Ukrainian TV channel 24:
“I do not care what is happening in Lugansk. I’m not interested in the life of cockroaches. Even if a million cockroaches would be born in my kitchen – this does not mean that it belongs to them. No statuses and no special regimes for cockroaches, only dichlorvos [insecticide] – a lot of dichlorvos. Well, a couple of thousands of Javelins, of course ” – this was stated with regard to the US supplies of missile systems Javeline for Ukrainian army and talks on special autonomous status for Donbass region.
Now compare this rhetoric about “cockroaches” with the rhetoric of Rwandian genocide – the same terms and the same speeches.
