Oleh Yaroslavovych Tyahnybok is a Ukrainian politician and the leader of the Svoboda political party.[1][2]

In the speech, which was aired on television in the summer of 2004, he made comments such as,[3] "[You are the ones] that the Moscow-Jewish mafia ruling Ukraine fears most" and "They were not afraid and we should not be afraid. They took their automatic guns on their necks and went into the woods, and fought against the Muscovites, Germans, Jews and other scum who wanted to take away our Ukrainian state." In April 2005, Tyahnybok co-signed an open letter to President Viktor Yushchenko calling for a parliamentary investigation into the "criminal activities of organized Jewry in Ukraine."[4]
