Responding to Israel’s cautious condemnations of its aggression in Ukraine, Russia last night assailed Israel in the United Nations over its annexation of the Golan Heights.
#Polyanskiy: We're concerned over Tel Aviv’s announced plans for expanding settlement activity in the occupied #GolanHeights, which contradicts the provisions of the 1949 Geneva Convention. Russia doesn't recognize Israel's sovereignty over Golan Heights that are part of #Syria. pic.twitter.com/slHQSefJp5

Russia is a close ally of Syria, from which Israel captured the territory in the 1967 Six Day War.
