Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky accuses Russia of supporting Hamas in its conflict against Israel.
“We are certain that Russia is supporting, in one way or another, Hamas operations,” Zelensky says in an interview with the France 2 television channel. “Russia is really trying to carry out destabilizing actions all over the world.”
Zelensky also says the violence engulfing Israel and Gaza risks distracting international attention from the war in his own country.
“There is a risk that international attention will turn away from Ukraine, and that will have consequences,” he says.
The tragedies affecting his Ukraine and Israel “are different, but both are immense,” he says.
