Israeli embassy urges Ukraine government to prevent attacks on Jews in Kyiv
The Israeli embassy in Ukraine is deeply concerned about recent attacks on members of the Jewish community in Kyiv.
"We urge the Ukrainian government to thoroughly investigate the incidents, find the assailants and bring them to justice," the Israeli embassy said on Monday.
Israel highly appraises the Ukrainian government's fight against anti-Semitism and hopes that it will strongly condemn and prevent such attacks, it said.
The Jewish Kyiv portal reported earlier that a Yeshiva student was seriously wounded near the synagogue in the neighborhood of Podol in Kyiv on Friday evening. He was attacked and savagely beaten when he was returning home from synagogue. A Yeshiva teacher of the same synagogue was beaten up by three masked assailants on January 10.
