Ukraine’s foreign minister appears to take a swipe at Naftali Bennett for saying Russian leader Vladimir Putin assured Israel’s then-premier that he would not kill his counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky, shortly after Russia launched its invasion last February.

“In the past, Putin has made promises not to occupy Crimea, not to violate Minsk agreements, not to invade Ukraine, yet he has done all of these things. Do not be fooled: he is an expert liar,” Dmytro Kuleba writes on Twitter. “Every time he has promised not to do something, it has been exactly part of his plan.”

Bennett made the comment during a wide-ranging interview released yesterday, while recalling his efforts to mediate between Russia and Ukraine.
