Ukraine has made several demands of Israel ahead of Foreign Minister Eli Cohen’s planned visit to Kyiv, among them a public denunciation of the Russian invasion and expression of support for the country’s territorial integrity, the Walla news site reports.

Citing Israeli and Ukrainian officials, the report says Ukraine has also asked Israel to approve a $500 million loan; treat hundreds of wounded soldiers and civilians; and for the new government to commit to continue with plans to develop a civil rocket warning system, among others.

A Ukrainian official quoted in the report says a potential meeting between Cohen and Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky depends on Israel’s willingness to take steps in Kyiv’s favor.

“The president won’t meet Cohen for a photo-op,” the official says, though an Israeli official has predicted that they will meet.
