A plan to construct a gas station near the site of a Holocaust-era massacre in the Ukrainian city of Kharkov was canceled. The cancellation followed protests from Jewish leaders. Earlier this month, the authorities in Ukraine’s second largest city notified the Jewish community that the 2002 construction permit that allowed a local company to build a gas station near a recently unveiled monument that marks the site of the massacre in Drobitsky Yar near Kharkov had expired.
