Zelensky to address Knesset via Zoom: Israeli media
Israeli media reports that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will make a speech before the Israeli Knesset, saying it is likely that it would be in the coming days.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will "speak before the Israeli Knesset to talk about his country's view" of the Russian military operation, Israeli media reported Thursday.
The Israeli Maariv site reported that after Knesset speaker Mickey Levy agreed to Ukrainian ambassador Yevgen Korniychuk's request for his president to address the Knesset.
According to the Israeli site, the speaker agreed to allow Zelensky to address the Knesset via Zoom, but the date is yet to be set for the address to take place.
"The ambassador thanked Speaker Levy for his welcoming response to his letter and for publicly clarifying and refuting the false information published in the press, that allegedly argued that the speaker refused President Zelensky's request to address members of the Knesset," a statement issued by Levy's office said.
Israeli media also reported that the speaker's office contacted the Israeli ministry of foreign affairs to ask if there were any sensitivities surrounding Zelensky's speech, but the diplomatic body responded by saying there was no issue with Zelensky speaking before Knesset.
Zelensky had already spoken before officials and legislators in the United Kingdom, the European Union, and Canada.
"Tel Aviv" has been exploiting the Ukrainian crisis to serve its expansionism and occupation of Palestine, as it has been receiving Ukrainian refugees, exclusively Jewish ones, to try and expand its population.
The Israeli occupation had previously requested to mediate talks between Russia and Ukraine, but Moscow rescinded the Israeli mediation attempt.
