Israel asked Moldova to provide an emergency land route out of Ukraine for Jews and Israelis in the case of a possible Russian invasion, as it urged its citizens to leave the country now before it's too late. Foreign Minister Yair Lapid spoke with his Moldovan counterpart Nicu Popescu about such an escape route on Friday. He also called on the 10,000 Israelis in Ukraine to evacuate now, prior to the outbreak of any violence. Some 3,500 have already flown out of Ukraine or driven into neighboring countries. There are also some 200,000 Jews living in Ukraine. "Every effort must be made for Israelis to understand that late rescue can be complicated and dangerous," Lapid tweeted. "There is no need to take unnecessary risks."
