Some residents of the Russian city of Novosibirsk recently found their mailboxes stuffed with anti-Semitic leaflets blaming Jews for Russia’s economic hardships. In addition, anti-Semitic sentiments were recently spray-painted in different parts of the Siberian city, which has 9,000 Jews among its 1.5 million residents. The incidents took place after hundreds of stickers saying “Jews Are Rubbish” and showing a man throwing a Star of David into a garbage bin appeared in the northwestern Russian town of Borovichi.
