Cemetery in Borodianka after construction
Cemetery in Borodianka before construction

ESJF surveyors visited the Borodianka Jewish cemetery in March, 2015, finding multiple signs of recent desecration, with large trees chopped down and lying on graves. An immediate police complaint was lodged for vandalism and a meeting sought with the mayor. Planning permission to save the site was provided by the local authorities, with the specific demand that the site be surrounded with sturdy fencing almost three metres in height.
