According to recent events, Michael Brodsky, Israel’s ambassador to Ukraine, had important conversations with the head of the country’s border control, according to diplomatic sources who spoke to The Times of Israel.
In a surprisingly cordial interaction, Ukrainian officials reaffirmed their commitment to facilitating a smooth entry for Jewish pilgrims assembling in Uman for Rosh Hashanah. Notably, they promised to keep the border open 24/7.
Prior to this vital phone call, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had a conversation.
President Zelensky reportedly asked for the dispatch of 100 Israeli police personnel to Uman, according to an official source.
Israeli police officials will meet tomorrow to make a decision, while the precise number is still up for debate.
