Ukraine’s Armed Forces General Staff posts a message to its Facebook page, thanking Israel for its support.

Though senior Ukrainian officials have intensified their criticism of Israel recently over its unwillingness to supply air defense systems, the General Staff posts pictures from Kyiv’s Brodsky Synagogue Chief Rabbi Moshe Azman’s ongoing trip to Israel, where he is rallying support for Ukraine among Israelis.

“The Armed Forces of Ukraine are grateful for #Israel support and assistance!” reads the post, noting that two injured Ukrainian soldiers undergoing treatment in Israel were also present.
