Kiev Mayor Vitali Klitschko denounced anti-Semitism and Putin’s Russia during a speech to business leaders in Tel Aviv on Monday.

The reformist politician and former world heavyweight champion boxer arrived on a trip focused on encouraging Israeli investment in Ukraine, which is suffering severe inflation and a Moscow-backed insurgency in its industrial east.

Klitschko, one of the central figures in last winter’s Euromaidan protest movement that toppled pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovich, accused Moscow of being “afraid of the success of Ukraine.” That revolution ultimately led to the Russian annexation of Crimea and the current civil war in the Donbass region.

Pointing to former Warsaw Pact nations such as Poland and the Czech Republic as models for modernization and Westernization, Klitschko assured the gathered corporate representatives that corruption can be tackled and that “we can do changes.”
