The Netanyahu government is hinting on making a political shift to more pro-Russian in the Ukrainian crisis
The Israeli Wala website reported on Monday, that the new Israeli Foreign Minister, Eli Cohen, hinted, during a meeting with Foreign Ministry employees, that there was a shift in the new Israeli government’s policy towards the Ukrainian crisis.
According to the site, Cohen hinted during his speech that the new government will take a more pro-Russian stance in the Ukrainian crisis, noting that he will speak on Tuesday, with the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, and that will be the first contact of its kind since the launch of the special military operation in Ukraine.
Cohen said, that he intends to formulate a new responsible policy regarding the conflict in Ukraine, pointing out that Israel won’t talk much about the Ukrainian crisis during international events.
It should be noted that the former Israeli Prime Minister, Yair Lapid, took a hard line towards Russia and publicly condemned its military operation in Ukraine, and didn’t hold any telephone conversations with the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, or the Russian President, Vladimir Putin.
