Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he did not want Israel to seek an understanding between Moscow and Kyiv and that Tel Aviv would not hesitate to provide Kyiv with air defense systems.
Of course, we are waiting for Israel’s support. Of course, I do not want (Benyamin) Netanyahu, like his colleagues before him, to balance between Ukraine and Russia <... .>.He knows all the details and can certainly help in the issue of air defense. Nothing, this is not a weapon that attacks the Russian Federation, so there is no need to seek mutual understanding here.
Zelensky added: “The Israeli authorities must help Kyiv provide an air defense system if they want to maintain the old relationship between the two countries.”
It is noteworthy that in June last year, Zelensky stressed the need to build a security system in Ukraine similar to that in Israel, he said.
The Ukrainian authorities have also repeatedly called on the West to provide them with air defense systems.
