Venizelos denies Greeks being targeted by far-right Ukrainians

Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos on Thursday denied that Greeks living in Ukraine are being targeted by ultra-nationalists.

Earlier, SYRIZA MP Rena Dourou had accused the government of failing to protect the Greek community in Ukraine and referred to comments allegedly made by the head of the Greek community, Alexandra Protoshenko, that members of the far-right group Pravy Sektor had attacked ethnic Greeks.

Venizelos insisted this was not the case and that Dourou should have checked with the Foreign Ministry first.

He said the Greek Embassy and consulates in Ukraine were in close contact with the Greek community there.
