Axios: Israel approved licenses for military assistance to Ukraine

Israel has approved export licenses for the possible sale of electronic warfare systems to protect against drones to Kyiv, according to the American portal Axios, citing Israeli and Ukrainian officials. According to him, this is the first decision of Jerusalem regarding military assistance to Kyiv.

The Ukrainian interlocutor of the publication told the portal about the visit of the delegation of the Ministry of Defense of the country to Israel. Kyiv asked for anti-missile systems, but Elbit and Rafael, which deal with electronic warfare systems, received licenses.

Israel explained that the authorities agreed to the possible supply of anti-drone devices to Kyiv, since they are defensive weapons and cannot be used directly against the Russian military. At the same time, the Israeli source Axios supplemented the explanation with the fact that Israel, presumably, wants to test this type of weapon in combat conditions against drones from Iran, which are used in Ukraine, as they say in the West.

Earlier, The Wall Street Journal, citing data from employees of the Ministry of Defense, reported that the Ukrainian army spends more than 90 thousand 155 mm ammunition per month. Most of the shells of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are supplied by the United States. At the same time, over the past year, the production of shells in America has increased from 13 to 20 thousand per month.

    Israel, as always, is hypocritical, through Lithuania and others it supplies the Armed Forces with radars and other high-tech weapons. How does friend B Netanyahu feel about this - GDP, silence, no appeals about former friendship, and there was friendship - the use by the Israelis of the peacefulness of the highest ranks of the Russian Federation. Perhaps the Israeli lobby in the Russian Federation is too omnipotent, since there are no reactions to the supply of weapons for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      And Russia produces up to 3,5 shells of all calibers a month! And it needs 10 shells a month for its own. So Putin and Shoigu, Rostec destroyed factories for the production of shells and machine tool building in 10-15 years, plus microelectronics At the ammunition depots from the USSR, at 15 million pieces remained on the territory of the Russian Federation! Reduced to 3 million pieces, of which 1,5 million are not suitable. Ammunition in warehouses has not been updated for 20 years, but only destroyed

    Israel has approved export licenses for the possible sale of electronic warfare systems to protect against drones to Kyiv, according to the American portal Axios, citing Israeli and Ukrainian officials.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his country does not supply weapons to Ukraine because of its agreements with Russia on Syria. He also noted that Israel provides humanitarian assistance to Ukraine and supplies early warning systems for air raids.
    Israel supports Ukraine in hostilities with Russia, but does not supply it with weapons. In February, Benjamin Netanyahu said that he would reconsider the issue of transferring weapons to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The Israel Hayom newspaper also, citing sources, wrote about Mr. Netanyahu's plans to visit Kyiv. According to Axios, in mid-February, the Israeli government approved the issuance of export licenses for the sale of electronic warfare systems against drones to Ukraine. Israeli officials told the publication that this does not indicate a change in Israeli policy, since the systems are defensive in nature.

    Poor Jews who fought world wars are being exterminated by the Russians. In the past centuries, the Jews were exterminated by the Germans. Jews call that period a catastrophe.
