An emergency volunteer committee arranged the operation at the central syngagogue in Kiev until midnight, Alexander Levin, the president of the World Forum of Russian-Speaking Jewry, told Israel Radio.

Despite recent unrest and the presence of Russian forces in Ukraine's Crimea region, Russia announced on Friday that there will be no war with Ukraine.

The parliament in Ukraine's southern Crimea region said on Thursday it would hold a referendum on whether the region should join Russia on March 16.
