Israel filed a protest with the decision of the Verkhovna Rada noted at the state level, the birthdays of the leaders of the nationalist movement. About this on his page in the social network was written by the Director of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee Eduard Dolinsky.
“The official protest from the Ambassador of the state of Israel Joel Lyon in connection with the decision of the Verkhovna Rada to celebrate the anniversaries of a number of Nazi collaborators:
“We believe that the celebration of Nazi collaborators is an insult to the memory of the six million Jews murdered by the Nazis.
In the light of our good relations, we want to reconsider the inclusion of these controversial figures in the list of those who officially celebrate”.
We will remind, last year the Verkhovna Rada declared the birthday of the leader of the Ukrainian nationalist movement Stepan Bandera a national holiday.
We also reported that in Ukrainian shops there were produced in Kiev Cologne “Stepan Bandera”.
