He recalled Israeli solidarity with Ukraine over the previous two years. A rustic that has been “aggressively invaded” with cities beneath assault and civilians focused. Support for Ukraine, Erdan mentioned, “is not just in words but in actions.” Israel despatched humanitarian support and constructed a hospital on the border, “Many wounded Ukrainians have received the best rehabilitation Israel can offer.”

Erdan then compares the Russian invasion of Ukraine to the motion of Hamas which violated Israeli territory by killing and raping. Ukraine and Israel are preventing a battle to outlive, he says. «This week, he continues, Russia will host a Hamas delegation in Moscow and it received't be the primary time. Russia is among the few international locations exterior the Middle East the place Hamas and Houthi jihadists obtain pink carpet therapy. Even after October seventh. Russia harbors these answerable for killing kids, raping ladies and burning households alive.”

«This meeting in Moscow is the result of something even more dangerous – continues Erdan -. The fact is that Russia is now increasingly tightening its ties with the forces of destabilization, that is, with the axis constituted by Iran, Syria and North Korea and with Venezuela. “Russia is getting ever closer to all of them.” We, she says, «will continue to stand by Ukraine. We've both experienced invasion, we've both experienced brutality.”

The Israeli ambassador “accused the United Nations, in particular the Security Council, of not defending these two countries”, Israel and Ukraine, and if issues proceed like this the chance is “of losing all legitimacy” .

At the start of the conflict in Ukraine, Israel had tried to take care of a sure neutrality however then the ever-increasing involvement of Iran and above all of the more and more shut relations between Russia and Iran modified issues.
