KRAKOW – President of the All- Ukrainian Jewish Congress Vadim Rabinovich
claimed last week that Ukrainian authorities were attempting to take away his

the European Jewish Union – accused Ukrainian authorities of threatening him,
including with physical violence, to force him to transfer ownership of his TV
channel to them within a week.
