Kiev Attack Victim to Be Treated in Israel

JewishPress Logo

Aharon Alexander Gorshonov, 25, the Jewish man who was attacked after he had left a seder at a synagogue in Kiev, will be flown to Israel for treatment.

Gorshonov was found on Sunday night in an area near the synagogue where attacks by neo-Nazi groups have occurred in the past, nearly a full day after the attack, with serious head injuries believed to have been inflicted by glass bottles.

He was in critical condition in a Kiev hospital after surgery. He also had bruises on his upper body.

ZAKA announced that he would be flown to Israel on Tuesday night, accompanied by ZAKA volunteers and a special medical team that flew in earlier Tuesday from Israel.

European Jewish Congress President Moshe Kantor in a statement Monday called on Ukrainian officials to hunt down the attackers. He called them neo-Nazis.

“This attempted murder by neo-Nazis in Kiev, just weeks after the Islamist murders in Toulouse, by groups who have nothing in common except for a visceral hatred of Jews, is a phenomenon that European leaders have to stamp out now,” Kantor said. “We call on European leaders to act swiftly to strengthen legislation, bolster education and increase intelligence sharing to prevent what could become a tsunami of hate and violence against the Jews of Europe.”
