Ukraine - Anti-Semitic Propaganda Displayed At Ukraine Cathedral

Ukraine -- Anti-Semitic material was found inside and outside a Russian Orthodox cathedral affiliated with the Moscow Patriarchate in Kamenets-Podolsky.

Posters calling for the boycott of kosher products hang outside the Aleksandr Nevsky Cathedral, according to an article published in the Ukrainian newspaper Gazeta 24.

Inside the cathedral, a newspaper article is posted claiming that “kikes” were behind the creation of the modern Ukraine in an effort to divide and weaken the Russian empire. The article also alleges that a "Jewish conspiracy" was responsible for both the Russian Revolution that brought the Communists to power in 1917 and the Orange Revolution of 2004.

The Union of Councils for Jews in the Former Soviet Union has asked a local Jewish advocate to meet with representatives from the cathedral to discuss the anti-Semitic propaganda, which clearly violates Ukraine's laws against hate speech.
