Mickey Levy, speaker of the Knesset, has expressed support for Ukraine following Zelenskyy’s virtual address to the Israeli parliament.

“I would like to express my sympathy with the pain of the Ukrainian people who are being attacked in their homes,” Levy said, adding that he was sending his condolences from “our capital Jerusalem.” The status of Jerusalem is disputed and the city is not recognised as Israel’s capital.

“The Russian attack on Ukraine is a blatant violation of international order and everything must be done to bring about a ceasefire and an end to the war as soon as possible,” Levy added.

He did not comment on Zelenskyy’s request for Tel Aviv to provide arms to Kyiv.
