Threats Made on Account of Crimean Colonization Proposal


“Woe to the Ukrainian Jews if the plan for Jewish colonization in the Crimea is accepted,” is the threat made by the “Dilo” the leading Ukrainian newspaper here, in protesting against the Crimean plan. The paper goes on to state that the realization of the plan is possible only with the assistance of the Jews all over the world. It also states that it would result in “Jehova’s sons” having two fatherlands.

According to the paper, the chief reason that the Ukrainians would fight the plan is because the Jews would be placed in a position that would enable them to blockade the only access that the Ukraine has to the sea.
