Israel’s ambassador to Ukraine Michael Brodsky is lightly injured in a car accident in Poland, where he and the embassy staff have been stationed since Saturday.

The accident occurred on the way to Warsaw. He is returning to Israel for medical treatment and will then return to Poland, where he has been leading efforts to assist Israelis to leave Ukraine and get through the often crowded border crossings.

Brodsky will be temporarily replaced by Simona Halperin, Head of the Euro-Asia Bureau at the Foreign Ministry.
