Eight weeks into Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Defense Minister Benny Gantz announced that Jerusalem will provide Kyiv with protective gear for its rescue and emergency organizations. Gantz spoke with his counterpart Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov on Wednesday and said that following the request from Kyiv, Israel’s Defense Ministry will provide protective gear such as helmets and vests.

“This is part of Israel’s extensive effort to provide humanitarian aid, which includes the establishment of a field hospital, the absorption of refugees and immigrants, the provision of food and medical assistance, and more,” read a statement released by his office. Israel has been trying to strike a balance between Russia and Ukraine. Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is said to have declined in February to sell weapons after he was asked by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

According to public broadcaster KAN, when Zelensky asked for military assistance, Bennett responded with “diplomatic politeness.”
