Ukrainian Dolls with Jewish theme

.
While Kiev seems like a fun modern city, there is a darker side lurking underneath the capital of Ukraine. In the 2012  parliamentary elections, the All-Ukrainian Union "Svoboda", translated as Freedom Party, garnered 10.44% of the popular vote - this transposed into 37 parliamentary seats. Many international sources have accused Svoboda of harboring strong Nazi elements in its politics. In 2004 Tyahnybok, the party leader, spoke of the "the Moscow-Jewish mafia which today runs Ukraine."

This sounds a lot like the words of Ukrainian national hero Bohdan Chmielicki who led a the Cossacks in a murderous rampage against Jews killing tens of thousands in the years 1648-1649. Chmielicki told people that the Poles had sold them as slaves “into the hands of the accursed Jews.”
