Ukraine blasts Israel for yesterday’s film deal with Russia, accusing Jerusalem of “collaboration” and aiding Moscow in spreading its propaganda.

“We no longer know how to comment,” says Ukraine’s embassy in a statement.

“On the very same day when a Russian rocket struck a crowded market in Donbas area of Ukraine, once again killing and injuring dozens of innocent civilians, the Israeli Government signed a cooperation agreement in the field of cinema with the Russian propaganda perpetrators,” it says.

“Israel is collaborating with this ruthless country, well known for its cinematic endeavors aimed at spreading war propaganda,” continues the Ukrainian statement.

“While the international community isolates Russia to demonstrate that its actions are unacceptable to civilized society, it looks like Israel is offering additional platforms to the aggressive federation for the dissemination of their toxic ideas.”
