According to Ukrainian Ambassador to Israel Yevgen Korniychuk, a missile attack early warning system from Israel started operating in Kyiv this week.
Since Russia invaded Ukraine last year, Kyiv has requested the civilian defense system from Jerusalem.
Although the previous Israeli administration agreed to deliver it, the envoy attributed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s participation in accelerating the process.
Israel supplies Ukraine with military hardware, intelligence-gathering tools, and humanitarian supplies.
For fear of angering Moscow, the Jewish state has rejected Ukrainian requests for offensive weapons.
Russia continues to be the dominant armed force in Syria, where airstrikes by Israel targeting Iranian terrorist infrastructure are ongoing.
A paper analyzing potential situations in which Israel could start supplying Ukraine with offensive weapons for use in its conflict with Russia is among the classified materials that were stolen from the Pentagon and disclosed in February.
The intelligence report claims that under U.S. pressure, Israel would follow a “Turkish model” in which, like Ankara, Jerusalem would sell Kyiv lethal defensive systems or make them available through third parties.
This scenario is the “most plausible” one in which Israel would reverse course.
Warehouses holding American ammunition in Israel were partially accessed to assist Ukraine in repelling the Russian incursion earlier this year.
The depots are recognized as being on American soil since they are officially recognized as U.S. military storage facilities.
For many years, there has been an understanding between Jerusalem and Washington that Israel would receive the weapons in an emergency, such as if it came under severe attack on the same magnitude as the Yom Kippur War in 1973.
