One day Prime Minister Naftali Bennett flies on Shabbat to Moscow, apparently trying to mediate between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. That night he flies from Moscow to Berlin to brief new German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on his efforts.

On another day his office announces that he will be going to India in early April. Two days later he shows up in Egypt for a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, which is then expanded to an unprecedented tripartite meeting with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, the power behind the throne in the United Arab Emirates.
