Synagogues, Jewish schools and community organizations have popped up around the country. And perhaps most stunningly, Ukrainians overwhelmingly backed Volodymyr Zelenskyy in the 2019 election to do something Soviet Jews would have thought impossible: become a Jewish president.

“Putin’s claims of de-Nazifying Ukraine is the most ludicrous and craziest thing”
