Ukraine has its first Jewish prime minister after the parliament gave its approval for speaker Volodymyr Groysman to take the post.
Mr Groysman, 38, was voted in by a margin of 257 to 50 after MPs formally accepted the resignation of former Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.Source
Of Yatesenyuk, however, the Guardian wrote this in 2014:
He has played down his Jewish-Ukrainian origins, possibly because of the prevalence of antisemitism in his party's western Ukraine heartland.Source
Jews are just over 1% of Ukraine's population. Two Prime Ministers in a row. As we all know, however, "claiming Jewish people have disproportional influence in politics is an antisemitic trope with a long history".
