Ukraine’s Zelensky thanks Israel for support, doesn’t mention Bennett’s meeting with Putin
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky thanks Israel for its support in a televised address but does not mention Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s trip to Moscow to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“I am grateful to Israel for their support for Ukraine,” Zelensky says, according to a translation by Sky News. “We need the support of all countries and we were talking about the support we need now and how we are going to cooperate in the future after the war.”
Zelensky says he spoke yesterday with US President Joe Biden and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
“Every evening I speak to the leaders of international organizations in different countries,” he says. “These conversations help our confidence.”
