Zelensky and Netanyahu Talk About Uman

By 09/08/2023 2:09 PMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff


Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine, and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke by phone on Thursday; one of the subjects they discussed was Uman on Rosh Hashana.

They also discussed Israeli aid to Ukraine, according to the Prime Minister’s Office, and a civil alert system Israel is constructing for Ukraine, which has reportedly been delayed.

Netanyahu stressed the significance of making sure Jews traveling to Uman for Rosh Hashanah are permitted entry. Tens of thousands are anticipated.

After Netanyahu won the election in late December, the two men last spoke.

According to reports, in response to Israel’s deportation of Ukrainians, the Ukrainian ambassador to Israel reportedly threatened to close Israel’s borders to Israelis traveling to Uman.

Israeli officials reportedly dismissed the threat as “baseless” and disregarded it. According to reports, non-Jewish Ukrainians enter Israel ostensibly as tourists rather than refugees.

In some cases, Israel suspects these individuals are planning to stay there illegally and deports them when necessary.

According to a source cited by the Ynet news site, “there is no basis for the threats of the Ukrainian ambassador in Israel about [Ukraine] closing its borders ahead of the Rosh Hashanah events in Uman.

The Times of Israel reports that no decision has been made in favor of Israelis traveling to Uman. Israel was criticized by Ukraine prior to the call for signing a film deal with Russia the day before, charging them with “collaboration” and aiding in the spread of Russian propaganda.

Israeli diplomats claimed last month that Ukrainian Ambassador Yevgen Korniychuk had exaggerated the number of Ukrainians who had been deported, adding that this was “not the first time the ambassador has tried to create a media storm, thus harming the good relations between our countries.”
