Statement of the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine  about the attack on the synagogue in Mariupol

The Jewish Confederation of Ukraine is outraged by the bandit attack on the Kherson synagogue.

It is noteworthy that a criminal who broke into the synagogue attacked the Jews with an axe in his hand, as the thugs of the past did. And it is symbolic that this attack was committed on the eve of the most tragic day for the Jews, the ninth of Av.

Fortunately, this time the tragedy did not happen thanks to the courage of the synagogue guard. However, this brutal crime must be urgently investigated, and the perpetrator found and punished.

The entire Jewish community of Ukraine demands this. This is what everyone who cares about interethnic and interfaith peace in Ukraine wants.
