Of The Jewish Confederation Of Ukraine
In Brief ...
"There is a Russian spirit there. It smells Rus", - wrote the classic in his famous fairy-tale. However, he didn't explain what the smell came from. Neither shall we try to do so because another classic said: "Brains are not enough to understand what Russia is". So there is no reason to do this. However, we'll try to find out what smell comes from the newspaper "Russian Crimea" because it is published in Ukraine, not in Russia somewhere on the banks of the Volga or Irtish. So, how does this newspaper smell?
Anti-Semitic manifestations in Ukraine are often connected with the activity of representatives of the Ukrainian Diaspora. Namely they often appear authors or sponsors of anti-Jewish articles and editions. This phenomenon is, probably, connected with the fact that some businessmen try to use anti-Semitism in a competitive struggle.
