UCSJ DECRIES RESULTS OF RUSSIAN PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS
UCSJ: Union of Councils for Jews in the Former Soviet Union issued a statement
today decrying the results of the Russian parliamentary elections held last
Sunday. After the extensive and often brutal measures the Kremlin took in
recent months to carefully manage the results of the elections, President Putin
and his administration abjectly failed to translate his often eloquent
statements that condemn antisemitic and xenophobic hate crimes into an improved
and reformed Duma.
