And after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday that Ukraine’s request to supply weapons was “under investigation”, Moscow said Israeli weapons would also be “legitimate targets for Russian forces”.
“When it comes to arms transfers, we do not classify countries according to their geography,” said Maria Zakharova, a spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry. “All countries that supply weapons must understand that we will consider those weapons as legitimate targets.”
Netanyahu has not clearly played the Ukrainian card in the conflict with Russia until recently, trying to spare Russia. After all, Moscow controls the airspace over Syria, Israel’s neighbor, and usually turns a blind eye to Israeli operations in Iran.
On Wednesday, the Israeli prime minister also confirmed that US artillery munitions previously stored in Israel were being transferred to Ukraine, and hinted that Israel would prevent Iran from producing weapons for Russia. The West accuses Tehran of supplying drones to Russia, which the Iranians deny.
Netanyahu also offered his services as a mediator between Kyiv and Moscow in an interview with CNN on Wednesday. In February last year, he was actually asked to act as mediator, but he did not respond because he was in the opposition at the time. “If the time and circumstances are right, I will certainly consider it,” the prime minister said.
