Ukraine – Israel. President Volodymyr Zelensky: Is Israel with the democratic world or with those who turn a blind eye to Russian terror?
The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, criticized the neutral attitude of the Israeli authorities towards Russian aggression against Ukraine. He also mentioned the alliance between Moscow and Tehran. – This alliance simply would not exist if your politicians had made a timely decision. The decision we asked for – he asked the Israeli authorities.
Volodymyr Zelensky in a video speech at a conference organized by the Israeli daily Haarec, he admitted that his country still does not have “a modern and effective anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense system that could secure the skies” over Ukraine. – This is why Russia he hopes to use terror from the air to recoup his losses on the ground, he said. He also said that during the eight months of the war, Russia used “nearly four and a half thousand rockets against Ukraine”.
– Their supply of rockets is low. Therefore, Russia is looking for inexpensive weapons in other countries to continue the terror. She found it in Iran, he said. – I have a question. Do you think Iran is only interested in money? – He asked. According to Zelensky, the agreement is based on the Russian promise to help in the development of the Iranian nuclear program.
In his opinion, passivity Israel it made Russia allow itself to enter into an “alliance” with Iran, which resulted in supplying the Russian army with Iranian weapons.
– This alliance simply would not exist if your politicians had made a timely decision. The decision we asked for – he asked the Israeli authorities, Zelensky, referring to his repeated requests to support Ukraine with Israeli air defense systems.
The president asked further: – Is Israel with a democratic world that fights side by side with the existential threat to its existence? To those who turn a blind eye to Russian terror, even if the cost of continued terror is the complete destruction of global security?
He then assessed that the rapprochement between Moscow and Tehran was possible thanks to the “decision not to disturb the Kremlin” in 2014 after annexation of Crimea by Russia in order to maintain good relations between the two countries. “
The head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs requests that diplomatic relations with Iran be severed. He’s got a “bag of evidence” for the “doubters”
Zelenskiy pointed out that Russia ordered “about two thousand drones” from Iran to support its campaign of bombing Ukraine, in particular energy infrastructure. “According to our intelligence, Russia has ordered around 2,000 Iranian shahedas,” he said, but did not specify whether that figure includes the new order or the total number of Iranian drones Moscow has purchased from Tehran, some of which have already been used.
Last week, Israel’s defense minister Beni Ganc announced that Tel Aviv would not sell Ukraine any weapons and was only considering providing Kiev with early warning systems against drones and missiles.
On October 16, Israel’s diaspora minister, Nachman Szaj he was in favor of granting military aid to Ukraine in connection with the information on the deliveries of Iranian ballistic missiles to Russia.
Ukrainian intelligence: Russia begins to use Iranian-made equipment
Parallel to Zelensky’s speech, Ukrainian intelligence reported that the Russian authorities were unable to provide a new wave of mobilized Russians with the necessary ammunition of their own production, and therefore began to use Iran-made equipment.
“Due to the inability to provide a new wave of mobilized necessary ammunition of its own production, the Russian Federation begins to use Iranian-made equipment. In the near future, it is planned to provide the Russians with 3,000 pieces of protective equipment – 1,500 bulletproof vests and 1,500 Milad helmets “- reported the Ukrainian HUR.
According to intelligence, Iranian ammunition is currently in storage at a logistics center in the Belgorod region.
HUR noted that the Iranian authorities also plan to send a new group of advisers to Russia to help Russian soldiers in the combat use of a new type of unmanned aerial vehicle: the Arash-2 and the Iranian ground-to-ground missiles.
Moreover, according to Ukrainian intelligence, a group of advisers to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has already arrived from Iran to teach Russians how to operate the Shahed-136 and Mohajer-6 unmanned aerial vehicles.
