Ukraine plans to sell Jewish cemeteries and massacre sites #ukraine


Tony Hausner
 

I have been informed by folks in Ukraine that the Parliamnet has just approved the following. To sell the land on which Jewish cemeteries and the mass grave massacre sites are located.  At the following link are 3 files: 1) a letter shared with me, 2) a posting on facebook, and 3) U.S. PUBLIC LAW 113–154—passed in AUG. 8, 2014 that might be relevant.  I would appreciate any advice and assistance on this.

The two Google Drive documents are not hyperlinked. Please re-post.

Local municipalities have been selling these Jewish cemetery and mass grave properties for years. What are the ramifications of this current announcement? For example, is it formally allowing/encouraging local municipalities or the national government to sell, or mandating that they will sell?

Can you - or a Ukrainian language reader on this thread - please direct us to the current Ukraine Parliament announcement?

I have been following this issue from the facebook posts of a Jewish activist in Lviv name Meylakh Sheyket. He has been protesting this action by the parliament. It's a little unclear to me because many of his posts are in Ukrainian and I use google translate but it appears that this bill has not been signed yet and not in force. This is one of his posts.

Meylakh Sheykhet two parliaments deputies temporarily blocked signing the bill to open the land market, will it work for the future is unknown. More efforts needed...

This is definitely something we have to stay on top of.

Shabbat shalom.
