Of The Jewish Confederation Of Ukraine
In Brief ...
As the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians aggravated, a wave to anti-Semitism engulfed Europe from Great Britain to Ukraine. Threats, malicious graffiti, shelling Jews with stones, gunshots, bomb explosions, acts of terror in synagogues were among crimes of anti-Semites.
A recent meeting of the Kiev city court of appeals on the lawsuit of "Authors of the book "Anti - Semitism against Ukraine" against the "Vecherny Kiev" newspaper" ("VK") and its encounter suit lasted nearly an hour. Over this time three judges solved the problem the Shevchenko district court of Kiev had spend two years on. They were to find out whether the facts set forth in the article "To the court for protection against anti - Semites" (Renaissance - 91) correspond to reality. The article accused some "VK" publications of anti-Semitism. Notwithstanding the fact this characteristic was supported by many documents, the court obliged me as an article author to pay six thousand hryvnas to "VK". Some facts in that district court's decision were distorted, some were fabricated and others were simply "neglected" by a woman-judge.
