Israel’s Diaspora Affairs Minister Nachman Shai expresses concern for the fate of Ukraine’s Jews amid the Russian invasion and promises to send assistance as needed.
“I am very concerned about the situation in Ukraine, and especially for the safety of Jewish communities in the area,” Shai says in a statement.
“The State of Israel will always care for Jews in danger, wherever they may be,” he adds.
“The Diaspora Affairs Ministry is preparing an aid package for Ukraine’s Jewish communities, and we are prepared to provide a response in any way we can,” Shai says.
Shai’s office does not immediately elaborate on what the aid package will include or how it will be delivered to the Jewish communities in Ukraine.
