A Ukranian politician called Mila Kunis a "dirty Jewess," according to the British newspaper Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail reported that Ukrainian politician, Igor Miroshnichenko, said the 29-year-old star was not a true Ukrainian, and called her a "zhydovka," which roughly translates as "dirty Jewess."

Kunis has yet to respond to the statement.

Jewish groups around the world, however, have criticized the Ukrainian politician's remarks, and United Press International reported that the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles sent a letter to Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, demanding that he publicly condemn the statements.
