Joodse premier Oekraine aan de macht gebracht door neo-Nazi´s
Zelfs Tom Clancy had het niet beter kunnen bedenken.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk, joods en met ultra-nationalistische roots.
*Yatsenyuk has two major issues that will come to a head before the elections. Firstly he is Jewish, which according to political analyst Taras Kuzio, could pose a major problem. There has been a recent, though rather quiet, campaign launched against Tymoshenko by the extreme right, which has called her the "Jew with the braid." This could be a taste of things to come. The remark against her gives one the ability to imagine how Yatsenyuk?s bona fide Jewish origins could become the brunt of anti-Semitic remarks during the campaign,? Kuzio says. More broadly the extreme right, such as Oleh Tyahnybok?s Freedom Party, has been boosted thanks for the financial crisis.
Yatsenyuk?s Judaism is not his only identity related political problem. Members of his family were prominent in the Ukrainian nationalist movement, which will doubtless cost him votes in the country?s Russian-speaking east.*
