Ukraine: Skinhead Attacks Have Increased in Kiev

By Larry Habegger | Permalink | 2 comments | November 7th, 2006 | Trackback

The U.S. Embassy in Kiev issued an announcement Nov. 3 reminding Americans that racially-motivated attacks by skinheads have increased and “have occurred without provocation in prominent areas of downtown Kiev that are commonly frequented by tourists.” The majority of victims have been of Asian, African or other non-European descent, but all visitors should be vigilant. Harassment is also common, with both civilians and police stopping Asians and Africans on the street for no legitimate purpose.
