Zelenskyy blasts Israel, suggests Russia-Iran nuclear collusion | Russia-Ukraine war News


The Ukrainian leader protested Israel’s refusal to provide the Iron Dome missile defense system, saying the attack on his country had brought Moscow and Tehran closer together.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has criticized Israel’s neutrality in the Ukraine war, saying its leaders’ decision not to support Kyiv with weapons has encouraged Russia’s military partnership with Iran.

Speaking at a conference on Monday organized by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Zelenskyy repeated his demands to Israel Anti-missile Iron Dome technology to thwart Russian attacks.

The Ukrainian army is defeating the Russians on the battlefield, “but unfortunately we do not have an Iron Dome of our own. We still do not have a modern and effective air and missile defense system that can protect our skies.” he said by video link.

On Monday, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz told his Ukrainian counterpart, Oleksiy Reznikov, that “Israel will not provide weapons systems to Ukraine”.

Since the Russian invasion in February, Israel has offered humanitarian assistance to Ukraine but has refused to provide military equipment for fear of damaging relations with Russia.

Zelenskyy said the decision to “not disturb” Russia by helping Ukraine militarily enabled the partnership between Moscow and Tehran, without specifying exactly how.

“Their union simply wouldn’t have happened if your politicians had only made one decision at the time,” Zelenskyy said. “…It seems to have been passed a long time ago – in 2014 when Russia started its aggression against Ukraine.”

The leader of Ukraine was repeatedly criticized Israel for not staunchly opposing Russia’s attack on its country.

Nuclear programs of Russia and Iran?

After exhausting its missile arsenal, Russia sought weapons from other countries, Zelenskyy said.

“It found them in Iran. I have a question for you: How do you think Russia pays Iran? Iran only cares about money? Probably not money at all, but Russia’s support for Iran’s nuclear program.”

He said Russia has ordered about 2,000 Shahed-136 “kamikaze” drones from Iran, the same type that Kyiv says Moscow has used in recent attacks on Ukraine.

“The disgusting sound of Iranian drones is heard in our sky every night. According to our intelligence, Russia has ordered about 2,000 units Shaheds from Iran,” Zelenskyy said. “Iranian instructors come to teach Russians how to use drones” [in Ukraine]. “

Iran has refused to supply to Russia with weapons for war.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran absolutely does not supply any party with weapons for use in the war in Ukraine and its policy is against arming any party for the purpose of ending the conflict. war,” Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said.
