Israel must join the international sanctions regime against Russia and allow visa-free entry for refugees fleeing Moscow’s aggression, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told students at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem during a special video address on Thursday.

“Unfortunately, we have not yet seen Israel join the sanctions regime,” said Zelensky, whose words were translated from Ukrainian into English. “When governments introduce sanctions against Russia, this is not about money or about business. It is about values and general security. This is about everyone who is willing to destroy another nation [being] held accountable. Japan, Australia and many other countries have joined [the sanctions regime]. Many European countries act together with us against Russian aggression.”

'Not a simple situation'

Sitting next to a Ukrainian flag wearing an olive-colored short sleeve shirt, Zelensky said “We understand that it is not a simple situation for you,” tactically acknowledging Israel’s tenuous situation given that the Russian military is stationed across its northern border in Syria. However, the situation is no different in Poland, he said, “which is also threatened by Russia. They are providing us with essential logistical support. They hosted 2.5 million people.”
