JNS.org – US Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism Elan Carr said earlier this week that it was “stunning and unprecedented” that the Jewish identity of Ukraine’s newly elected president, Volodymyr Zelensky, played no role in last month’s elections.

Carr made his remarks on Sunday during a panel on combating antisemitism at the Kyiv Jewish Forum organized by Boris Lozhkin, president of the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine.
