"Another disturbing case of anti-Semitism in Ukraine, this time on the steps of the central synagogue of Kiev," Lion said. "I hope law enforcement agencies arrest the culprits as fast as possible."

 

Lion attacked what he said was Ukraine's inaction in the fight against anti-Semitism.

 

"The state needs to do more, or else the violence will spread and people will get hurt," he said.

 

This is not the first instance of anti-Semitism in Ukraine in the last month.

A month ago, monuments in memory of the 54,000 Holocaust victims of the city of Bogdanovka in southern Ukraine were desecrated.

Anti-Semitic writing and swastikas were sprayed and carved onto the stone monuments.

 

The culprits left a printed message at the scene, mentioning the Jewish president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskiy,and the director of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee, Eduard Dolinsky, which threatened: "Wake up, stop, the sale of Ukrainian soil will lead you to a second Holocaust."
