The U.S. Embassy is saddened by the news of the damage to the Hanukkah menorah in Uzhgorod and is awaiting investigation of the incident.

"Saddened to hear vandals toppled a Hanukkah menorah in central Uzhgorod. We look forward to a swift investigation. The United States stands with Ukraine in condemning anti-Semitism," the U.S. Embassy said on Twitter.
