Ukraine cracks down on anti-Semitic university


Ukraine’s Ministry of education has dropped the accreditation of a university accused of purveying anti-Semitic literature.

Responding to a blizzard of bad publicity, the ministry stripped the accreditation of 14 branches of the Interregional Academy of Personnel (MAUP) – Ukraine’s largest private university and its biggest purveyor of antisemitic literature –according the AEN news agency reported Thursday.

The ministry reportedly cited technical violations to justify its decision rather than the country’s hate speech laws.
