Russia: Russian politician 'outs' Poroshenko as a Jew

Via IzRus:

Konstantin Zatulin is a politician leading the Russian national camp and the director of the Russian Institute for CIS Countries.  He recently spoke at an election meeting in Sevastopol, where he said that Ukraine is ruled by two Jews.

Ihor Kolomoyskyi, a Jewish oligarch, and the current President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko.

Poroshenko does not identify as a Jew, but Zatulin said that Poroshenko is of Jewish descent, and is the son of  the Jewish Alexey Valtsman.   Zatulin therefore insists on referring to him as Poroshenko-Valtsman.

'Outing' Jews is a favorite pastime of Russian antisemites.
