Ukraine and Israel are currently “at the beginning of cooperation” now that Israel has given Ukraine intelligence on the Iranian drones that the Kremlin regime uses to attack Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said on Oct. 26.
Zelenskyy was speaking during a joint briefing with his counterpart from Guinea-Bissau, Umar Sissoko Embalo in Kyiv on Oct. 26.
“Everyone is concerned about our relationship (with Israel),” Zelenskyy said.
“However, it has warmed up recently. After a pause, we see steps forward... We’re at the beginning of cooperation with Israel. And this is a positive sign from Israel. I’m grateful for that.”
Israel’s transfer of intelligence on the drones supplied by Tehran to Moscow “began a few days ago,” the Ukrainian leader said, However, he said he prefers not to disclose any details at this time.
Zelenskyy also said that he expects even greater support from Israel.
“Israel knows what war is,” Zelenskyy said. “We believe that Israel should support Ukraine more. We have been waiting for it since Feb. 24. We see that the Israeli people support the Ukrainians, but we are in need of the political leadership from Israel.”
Having failed to achieve any significant success in Ukraine, the Russian Federation in recent weeks has launched massive strikes on Ukrainian civilian infrastructure and even residential buildings, using both missiles and kamikaze drones purchased from Iran.
About 30% of Ukraine’s power plants have been damaged as a result of such attacks to date.
