Ukraine: Menorah sprayed with 'animal blood' in Kiev

Via Ynet News:

A menorah base in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev was sprayed with blood Sunday, just several days after a swastika had been scrawled on the same nine-lamp candelabrum. According to one estimate, the menorah was defaced with animal blood.

Ukraine's Jewish community filed a complaint with the local police, who launched an investigation into the incident, which likely took place at around 7 pm Sunday in the neighborhood of Podil.

Former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir was born in the same neighborhood, which was home to the only active synagogue during the Soviet era.
"Whoever renames streets after leaders who murdered Jews shouldn’t be surprised by the targeting of a menorah and Jewish symbols today," said Ukrainian-born activist Alex Tentzer.
