Ukraine: Anti-Semitic vandals caught by police

Via Arutz Sheva 7:
Ukrainian Police have arrested an anti-Semitic gang responsible for a long string of attacks against Jewish worshippers at the grave of Rabbi Nachman in Uman. Thousands of Breslov hasidim and others visit Uman for the High Holidays every year. 
The gang, which called themselves 'Torpedo', had been receiving instruction from a manager in Russia, who paid them money per attack in an attempt to stir up anti-Jewish sentiment in Ukraine. 
The gang was responsible for throwing a grenade at Jews in September, which injured a 13-year-old boy. 
In 2016, the gang had thrown a pig’s head and red paint into Rabbi Nachman's grave. Photograph close-ups of the pig’s head showed a swastika carved into the animal’s forehead. The attackers also sprayed tear gas and shouted anti-Semitic epithets during the assault, which left Jewish visitors to the tomb shaken.
