KYIV, Ukraine — After an hour-long meeting with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, Foreign Minister Eli Cohen announces that Israel will provide up to $200 million in loan guarantees for healthcare and civilian infrastructure projects in Ukraine.
He also announces that Israel will “assist Ukraine with developing a smart early warning system.”
“Israel, as stated in the past, stands firmly in solidarity with the people of Ukraine,” says Cohen, “and remains committed to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.”
Kuleba sounds a guardedly positive tone, saying he was “satisfied” with their conversation.
“Israel knows perfectly about our list of security and defense needs,” Kuleba says. “We will be waiting for decisions to be taken.”
