Ukraine does not have a need for Iron Dome, the country’s defense minister said on Saturday, in a sharp break from comments previously made by Kyiv’s ambassador to Israel. In June, Ukrainian Ambassador to Israel Yevgen Korniychuk said that Kyiv wanted to purchase Israel’s Iron Dome missile-defense system. “We need Israeli assistance... I mean that we need the military-technical support. We need Iron Dome... which will allow us to save our civilian women and children from the shelling of the Russian missiles in our territory,” he said at the time. On Saturday, though, in comments first reported by Yahoo News, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov told a Forbes summit that the Iron Dome system would not be suitable for Ukraine.
