Kiev police seize SS uniform


KIEV, Ukraine (JTA) — Kiev police seized and destroyed an SS uniform being offered for sale in a Ukrainian market.

The uniform was on sale in the Kurenyovsky market, according to the chief of police of the Obolon Kiev district. Police identified and arrested the sellers, who openly distributed Nazi uniforms and other paraphernalia.

Police seized the uniform at the request of the Jewish Forum of Ukraine, which addressed a letter to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Kiev city authorities several months ago demanding a stop to the open selling of anti-Semitic literature and other items.
