KRAKOW – President of the All- Ukrainian Jewish Congress Vadim Rabinovich claimed last week that Ukrainian authorities were attempting to take away his Jewish News One TV channel.

In a statement posted on the website of the United Jewish Community of Ukraine, Rabinovich – who is also vice president of the European Jewish Union – accused Ukrainian authorities of threatening him, including with physical violence, to force him to transfer ownership of his TV channel to them within a week.

“A senior official in the government visited Rabinovich on January 17 and threatened to harass him and physically harm him, should he not transfer the JN1 television channel to them within a week,” the statement said.
