Israel's foreign minister arrives in Ukraine
This is the first time a senior Israeli official has arrived in Ukraine since the start of a full-scale war with Russia.
Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen said this on his Twitter account.
This is the first high-ranking Israeli official to arrive in Ukraine since the start of a full-scale war with Russia.
I arrived today with the first visit of an Israeli minister to Kyiv since the outbreak of hostilities. For the past year Israel has stood with the Ukrainian people and on the side of Ukraine. Today we will hoist the Israeli flag at the Israeli embassy in Kyiv, which will return to regular activity with the aim of strengthening relations between the countries.
During his visit, the Israeli foreign minister will visit Bucha, Babi Yar and reopen the Israeli embassy in Kyiv, which was closed due to the Russian invasion.
Meetings will also be held with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and members of the Jewish community.
