It should be noted that it is the RUSSIANS and not the ethnic Ukrainians who are doing this.
Stepan Bandera Flashback:
As an uncompromising leader of the militant, terrorist branch of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), Bandera became a Nazi collaborator who lived with his deputies under German protection after World War II began. In preparation for the attack on the USSR, the Nazis recruited Banderas followers to act as Ukrainian-speaking policemen and to serve in two Ukrainian volunteer army battalions. By working with the Nazis, Bandera hoped to free Ukraine from Soviet rule and establish his own government there. An independent Ukraine, Bandera promised, would remain friendly to Germany.
Historian Karel Berkhoff, among others, has shown that Bandera, his deputies, and the Nazis shared a key obsession, namely the notion that the Jews in Ukraine were behind Communism and Stalinist imperialism and must be destroyed. The Jews of the Soviet Union, read a Banderist statement, are the most loyal supporters of the Bolshevik Regime and the vanguard of Muscovite imperialism in the Ukraine. When the Germans invaded the USSR in June 1941 and captured the East Galician capital of Lvov, Banderas lieutenants issued a declaration of independence in his name. They further promised to work closely with Hitler, then helped to launch a pogrom that killed four thousand Lvov Jews in a few days, using weapons ranging from guns to metal poles. We will lay your heads at Hitlers feet, a Banderist pamphlet proclaimed to Ukrainian Jews.
Only if it’s burned into his memory, but not if he’s just making stuff up again. The first casualty of war is truth.

“It should be noted that it is the RUSSIANS and not the ethnic Ukrainians who are doing this.”
Russia has the sixth largest population of Jews in the world not counting Israel. Why would they do this?
I noted that. I have read that the protestors on the other side are also anti-Semitic.
Also, members of the Russian Orthodox church in Ukraine were recently threatened that they would be attacked in the coming days by members of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Kerry said.
This all sounds like a disinformation campaign. Remember that the Russians likened the new Ukrainian regime to the Nazis and noted the anti-semitism of one of the Ukrainian parties.
Got any proof?
Oh, shut up. You don’t know who is doing this. False flag ops are common with liberal propagandists.
They are about 80 years too late. We registered in 1934 after the Nuremberg laws were passed.
However, Stalin had a thing about Jews, specifically in 1953, so maybe the Soviet agents in the Ukraine are just catching up on paperwork.
A Daily Beast Reporter went to where the fliers said to register. On Talking Points memo, and The Daily Beast I found:
..the fliers that bore Pushilin’s signature called him the “people’s governor,” a moniker he told the Ukrainian press he does not use to refer to himself. The fliers were also met with skepticism beyond the separatist leader’s public disavowal.
The U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, told CNN’s Jake Tapper that the leaflets were likely distributed by radicals.....
And when Anna Nemtsova, a reporter for the Daily Beast went to the administration office where the fliers instructed Jews to go pay the registration fee on Thursday, she found the room was empty.
The fliers “could have been the work of provocateurs hoping to discredit the pro-Russian movement” in Ukraine, according to the Daily Beast.
