The United Jewish Community of Ukraine (UJCU) has recorded 86.3% of cases of anti-Semitism in Ukraine out of the total number of anti-Semitic incidents reported in the 2019 OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (OSCE / ODIHR) hate crimes report in Ukraine.

The correspondents of UNIAN were informed about it in the UJCU.

The UJCU noted that according to the OSCE / ODIHR methodology, 44 cases of anti-Semitism occurred in Ukraine over the past year; 38 of them were recorded by the United Jewish Community of Ukraine.

At the same time, other public organizations, which also reported about cases of anti-Semitism in Ukraine in 2019, recorded about 50-60% of cases of the total.

The United Jewish Community of Ukraine emphasized that they have unique tools for monitoring anti-Semitism that other public organizations do not have.

By the way, the UJCU was the source of information in 70% of cases from the OSCE ODIHR report for 2018.

The UJCU called on all those who faced anti-Semitism to report it to the Jewish hotline by numbers 910 (free from a mobile phone) or 0 800 600 910 (free from a landline).
