Ukrainian Calling Mila Kunis Anti-Semite Names

Ukraine has a long history of being anti-Semitic.  It was part of Catherine II's "Pale of Settlement" where she ALLOWED Jews to live, and in this way kept them out of Russia proper. The Settlement was made up of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine and Belarus.  Kiev in Ukraine was a big Jewish center, but not known for orthodoxy.  

Ukraine has many parties in its parliament, one of which, is the Swodoba party.  Swoboda Parliamentarian, Yuriy Mykhalchyshyn, has quoted Third Reich (Nazi) leaders such as Joseph Goebbels, Gregor Strasser and Ernst Rohm in his political speeches.  The deputy chief of Swoboda, Ihor Miroshnychenko, has called the Ukrainian-born actress, Mila Kunis, a dirty Jewess."  So you know right away what I think of this party.  

"Kunis was born in Chernivtsi, in the Ukrainian SSR (now Ukraine).Her mother, Elvira, is a physics teacher who runs a pharmacy, and her father, Mark Kunis, is a mechanical engineer who works as a cab driver. Kunis has an elder brother named Michael (born c. 1976). She stated in 2011 that her parents had "amazing jobs", and that the family was "very lucky" and "not poor"; they had decided to leave the USSR because they saw "no future" there for Kunis and her brother. In 1991, when she was seven years old, her family moved to Los Angeles, California with $250. "That was all we were allowed to take with us. My parents had given up good jobs and degrees, which were not transferable. We arrived in New York on a Wednesday and by Friday morning my brother and I were at school in LA."
Anti-Semitism is growing fast with Nazi symbols being the new normal.  The 70,000 Jews who live there are very upset and worried.  

Kunis is Jewish and has cited antisemitism in the former Soviet Union as one of several reasons for her family's move to the United States. She has stated that her parents "raised [her] Jewish as much as they could," although religion was suppressed in the Soviet Union.  She is currently dating Ashton Kutcher.  
In 2008 she had her first break in films and played Rachel Jansen in forgetting Sarah Marshall.  She has been in many more films.  When she performed as Lily in Black Swan, she gained worldwide attention.  The Premio Marcello Mastroianni award for the best young actress or actor was hers at the 67th Venice International Film Festival.  She was nominated for a Golden Globe award for best supporting actress and had the screen actors Guild Award for outstanding performance by a female in a supporting role.  So Mila is internationally well known.  But to the prejudiced Ukrainian, she remains a dirty Jew.  Anti-Semitism is hard to scrub out of some people's minds.  I think it's he who needs some soap and water as he has just now dirtied the waters of the Ukrainians who agree with him.
