Union of Councils for Soviet Jews: In Wake of Attack on Foreign Students, Kiev Police Chief Denies Racist
Kiev police detained 17 youths in connection with an attack on three foreign students, according to a February 21, 2008 article in the local newspaper Kievskie Vedomosti. The mob of youths was hanging out near the MAUP university, which perhaps coincidentally is the country’s leading publisher of antisemitic literature, when they spotted two Iranian and one Chinese student getting off a bus. Police reacted quickly, detaining the attackers, but letting 12 go after establishing that they are under-aged. The other five are in detention pending charges.
