A demonstration has been called for 6:30 this evening in front of Russia’s Tel Aviv Embassy to protest Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Organized by the Israeli Friends of Ukraine, the “Stop Russian Aggression” protest is expected to draw a crowd in the low hundreds.

“We, Israelis [of] Ukrainian origin, Ukrainians, and friends of Ukraine, cannot stand aside and silently follow how Russia brutally invades the independent sovereign country, advances tanks and arms toward peaceful Ukrainian cities and villages, launches shells into kindergartens and infrastructure, destroys democracy, ruthlessly abolishes human rights and denies the right to existence of more than 40 million Ukrainians,” reads a statement on the Facebook page created by protest organizers.
