A Russian Jewish group has called on voters not to support the Communist Party in upcoming elections. The Russian Jewish Congress said it is disturbed because the Communists picked a politician known for his outspoken anti-Semitism to top their list for the Dec. 7 parliamentary elections. Nikolai Kondratenko, former governor of a southern Russian region, was approved earlier this month as No. 2 on the list after party leader Gennady Zyuganov.
