KYIV, April 11 /Ukrinform/. Representatives of the Jewish community in Odesa and Ukrainian National Assembly - Ukrainian People's Self-Defense (UNA-UNSO) activists have removed anti-Semitic graffiti from the city streets, press secretary of the Chabad Jewish community Boleslav Kapulkin said on Friday, a Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"UNSO representatives together with representatives of the Jewish community have jointly removed anti-Semitic graffiti on Odesa streets," Kapulkin said.

Chief Rabbi of Odesa and Southern Ukraine Avraham Wolf and UNSO commander Valeriy Zahorodniy jointly painted over the anti-Semitic graffiti.

As reported, on April 7 and April 8 the unknowns left the images of swastika, wolf hook, inscriptions “Right Sector" and "Glory to Ukraine" on the Holocaust Victims Memorial, Jewish graves at the Tairovske cemetery, as well as the walls of houses in Odesa. Zahorodniy called the anonymous inscriptions a provocation and assured Rabbi Wolf that the Right Sector and UNSO have nothing to do with this, and condemned this vile act.
