This is the opinion of the head of the Federation of Jewish communities of Russia.
The President of the Federation of Jewish communities of Russia (FJCR) Alexander Boroda called anti-Semitic words of the Vice-speaker of the state Duma Peter Tolstoy on those who destroyed Orthodox churches.
Beard urged the leadership of the lower house of Parliament and the party “United Russia” to respond to the statement of Tolstoy. “When we hear such words from the lips of the Vice-speaker of the state Duma at the official press conference is a direct undermining inter-ethnic peace in the country and the whipping up of tension”, — he stressed.
The head of the Federation described the remarks of Tolstoy as the “old and false like all such stories, the anti-Semitic myth.” Beard noted that the bulk of those who destroyed temples, was the local population, and not those who, in the words of Deputy speaker, “he jumped out from behind the pale with revolvers”.
Chairman of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin said that considers inadmissible any attacks that can hurt a particular nationality or ethnic group. He stressed that he is ready to discuss with the FJC the situation around Tolstoy.
Monday, January 23, Tolstoy at a press conference in Moscow said, “people who are the grandchildren of those who demolished our temples, jumped up from the pale of settlement with a revolver in 17, today, working in a variety of other very reputable places — on the radio, in the legislative assemblies, continue the work of their grandfathers and great-grandfathers”.
