Ukraine’s Embassy in Tel Aviv slams Israel over its immigration policy in a new tweet, claiming Jerusalem unilaterally decided to walk back on previous agreements and bar entry to women and children from Ukraine who don’t have an electronic visa.

“This decision endangers lives. Meanwhile, Russian and Belarusian oligarchs are able to enter Israel freely,” the embassy tweets.

Israel has largely avoided joining international sanctions campaigns against Russia and its oligarchs.
