Ukr/Jewish flags

Ukraine's Jewish community has written an open letter to President Putin accusing him of lying about the extent of anti-semitism in Ukraine. 

The letter, signed by 222 Jewish representatives and individuals, makes clear that the rights of Russian speakers are not being infringed, and that there is no issue of anti-semitism, unlike in Russia, where anti-semitic attacks have increased over the last year.

The Jewish community has bought advertising space in a number of newspapers in the USA, Canada and Israel to publicise the letter further, and plans to do more to ensure that Russian lies are countered with the facts.
