The Ukrainian Jewish Committee has been informed that anti-Semitic books and other literature were removed from many Kiev markets and kiosks, and recently sent letters thanking the law enforcement agencies for their support.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Jewish Committee and Jewish Forum of Ukraine are planning to petition Ukrainian and Kiev authorities to require the Biblion bookstands to withdraw from circulation or stop selling overtly anti-Semitic books and newspaper published by the Interregional Academy of Personnel Management, which is known for its anti-Semitic views and propaganda.
