Report: To avoid diplomatic incident, no foreign envoys will be invited to V-Day ceremony

The Absorption Ministry has decided not to invite any foreign ambassadors to the annual ceremony it is holding next week to mark Victory Day, Walla reports.

The decision has been made in order to avoid any sort of diplomatic incident that might have come from inviting either the Russian or Ukrainian envoys, according to Walla, which does not cite any sources.

The move is reported after Labor MK Gilad Kariv had reached out to Absorption Minister Pnina Tamano-Shata, urging her not to invite Russian representatives to the ceremony due to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.
