A group of ten skinheads attacked two yeshiva students in Kiev on Sunday, critically wounding one of them, Haaretz newspaper reported Monday quoting Israel Radio.

Rabbi Yaakov Zilberman, head of Kiev’s Jewish community, said the skinheads approached the two in an underground tunnel in the city center and attacked them with bottles, rods and knives.

The critically wounded student, 28, underwent surgery late Sunday.

Zilberman said that Jewish residents of Kiev encounter numerous acts of anti-Semitism. He said that they have appealed to the municipality with a request to protect the city’s Jewish community, the paper adds.

Anti-Semitic feelings are prevalent in Ukraine, with Ukrainian nationalists recently asking President Viktor Yuschenko to open criminal proceedings against "Judeo-Nazis."
