The organized Jewry slams Ukrainian authorities for allowing the neo-Nazis to honor fighters who are engaged in ethnic-cleansing of Jews and gay minorities in the breakaway Donetsk Republic.
A statue of Stepan Andriyovych Bandera was unveiled in Kiev city recently. Bandera is considered a national hero for declaring an independent Ukrainian state in June 1941 while the country was occupied by Nazi army. But he is hated by Jews for collaborating with Nazis against Jewish occupied Soviet Russia.
On March 28, 2017, Ukraine MP Nadiya Viktorivna Savchenko speaking with New One Channel, said: “Jews make 2% of country’s population while 80% of the Jews are in power. These are Groysman, Valtsman, Yuliya Tymoshenko, Beryoza, Logvinskiy and so on.”
On August 16, 2017, American editor and columnist Ajamu Baraka claimed that the Charlottesville terror had its roots in Ukraine. I’m sure ADL will consider such claim being antisemitism because Ukraine had been controlled by Jews decades before it parted away from Soviet Union in 1991.
On July 28, 2017, UK-based African writer and blogger Adeyinka Makinde posted an article, entitled: Post-Maidan Ukrainian Antisemitism: Another Tragic Blowback From US Interventionist Foreign Policy. Interestingly, Makinde claims that he is not Jewish even though 50% of his blog posts are about Jewish sufferings. He also admits that he delivers lectures on African Jewish heritage at synagogues and other Jewish gatherings.
According to Makinde, the Maidan coup was overseen by Jewish Victoria Nuland in collaboration with other American Israel-First such as Sen. John McCain, Sen. Lindsey Graham, etc. but he still blame Ukrainians for hating Jews.
“Anti-Semitism is embedded in the history of Ukraine. Ukraine composed a large geographical segment of the Pale of Settlement where Jews were largely restricted at the time of the Russian empire. Babi Yar, the ravine site of an infamous massacre of almost 34,000 Jews in 1941 is situated in Kiev,” claims Makinde.
Ukraine is home to 450,000 Muslims, mostly Tartars expelled by Russian dictator Josef Stalin. Country’s richest person, Rinat Leonidovych Akhmetov, is a Tatar Muslim. He is a coal and steel magnate and owner of Shakhtar Dontesk soccer, and Ukraine’ English newspaper Kyiv Post. Rinat is married to Russian singer and actress Liliya Smirnova.
Ukrainian Muslim singer Susana Jamaldinova won the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm, Sweden last year. Listen to her below:
