Zelensky's office chief: Russia is the European Hezbollah
The head of the Ukrainian President's Office calls on the world's Jews to pressure "Tel Aviv" to arm his country with weapons, likening Ukraine's security to that of "Israel".
Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak called on the world's Jews to pressure "Tel Aviv" to arm his country with weapons, according to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.
The call came just two days after Moscow warned "Israel" that supplying Ukraine with military equipment would destroy the political relations between the two sides.
Andriy Yermak dubbed Russia as the "European Hezbollah".
The Head of the President's Office claimed that without reliable air security systems - hinting at "Israel's" systems that the entity has refused so far to supply Ukraine with - "no one in Ukraine will be able to feel safe."

"Today, the voice of each of you and your organizations is critically important in the issue of air defense, in which Israel has really great experience, and most importantly - it has these systems," Andriy Yermak emphasized.
