Jun 30, 2023

According to the Israeli prime minister, statements that Jerusalem has not fulfilled its promises to help Ukraine are not true.


Israel has some limitations in helping Ukraine, but its position is not neutral. This was stated by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in an interview with The Wall Street Journal on June 28.

According to the head of the Israeli government, the words of the Ukrainian ambassador that Jerusalem has a pro-Russian position and does not fulfill its promises to help Kyiv are not true.

"Well, this is not true. The former government made some promises, they were in the process of being fulfilled, but they were not fulfilled. But I am fulfilling them. Maybe people should know what is going on. But we are not neutral," the politician said.

Benjamin Netanyahu noted that Israel has expressed its condolences to Ukraine, but his country has some restrictions. At the same time, Jerusalem is assisting Kyiv in rescuing civilians and has provided missile warning systems.

"We have concerns that I don't think any of Ukraine's Western allies have," Netanyahu said.
