A Jewish lawmaker in Ukraine said he feared for his life after receiving threats following a demand that he join a pro-government party. Evgeny Chervonenko, a member of the right-of-center opposition party Our Ukraine, told JTA that an anonymous caller told him last week to “do what that wise Jew Dobkin has done” — a reference to another Jewish member of Ukraine’s Parliament, Mikhail Dobkin, who last month switched his allegiance to the pro-government Social Democratic Party.
