Ukrainian capital names streets after Nazi collaborators

The Ukrainian Jewish Committee's director has harshly criticized a decision by the Ukrainian capital's legislature to name streets after Nazi collaborators

MOSCOW -- The Ukrainian Jewish Committee's director has harshly criticized a decision by the Ukrainian capital's legislature to name streets after Nazi collaborators.

Dolinsky said that the city legislators also named another Kyiv street after Nil Khasevich, an activist of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, who drew anti-Semitic cartoons and was involved in mass killings of Poles during World War II.

Dolinsky described the city council's move as an insult to Holocaust victims. The Ukrainian authorities had no immediate reaction.
