"Jewish Ukrainians in Danger" Due to Judeophobic Party


Member of Knesset Danny Danon (Likud Party), the Chairman of the Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora has expressed concern for Jewish people in Ukraine following the rise of Ukrainian Svoboda Party. MK Danon was in communication with the Ukrainian Embassy to Israel, Hennadii Nadolenko about the issue. He called upon the government of Ukraine "to cooperate with Israeli security agencies to eradicate Islamic terrorism against Jewish people in Ukraine and provide protection against a party reminiscent of the darkest period in Europe."

MK Danon said the murder of the Jewish doctor, Dr. Leon Freifeld in Lviv, Ukraine was an example of the danger.
