JCU calls for cancellation of the sale of a land plot with mass graves of Jews

17/06/2019

The Jewish Confederation of Ukraine is outraged by the actions of the city authorities of Poltava. We join the statement of the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the State of Israel to Ukraine, Joel Lion, and demand cancellation of the decision to sell the land on which the mass Jewish burial places of the Holocaust are located.

We are talking about Pushkarivsky Yar, where thousands of victims were killed and buried. The exact number of the dead has not been established, as research in this area has not yet been carried out, although human remains have been found on the site more than once.
