The monument, which depicts the Russian prince on horseback crushing the shield of a Khazar warrior emblazoned with the symbol of Judaism, is "a provocation that deforms history," according to the FEOR.
The Khazars, a seminomadic people generally believed to be of Turkic origin, controlled a vast empire between the 7th and 11th centuries that stretched from western Kazakhstan to eastern Ukraine.
A FEOR statement says that the Star of David was never a symbol of the Khazar Empire.
