Israel's anti-Russian position on the situation around Ukraine is not constructive and biased, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on the Soloviev channel Live».

“You said our relationship has become more complicated. No, they didn't get more complicated <…> It did not happen on its own, and certainly not with the involvement of our side. Unfortunately, in recent months we have heard absolutely non-constructive and, most importantly, biased rhetoric from Tel Aviv at the level of statements, — she said.

According to Zakharova, the country's leadership allowed itself “anti-Russian assessments” situations. “The position was framed exclusively in the pro-Ukrainian direction, and not in terms of the Ukrainian people, but in the direction of supporting only and exclusively the Kyiv regime, and it was absolutely in tune with this strange and wild voice of the West. It really raised questions, — said the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

After the start of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine, Israel condemned Moscow's actions, and then-Foreign Minister Yair Lapid called them “an attack and a serious violation of international order.” On July 1, he took over as head of the Israeli government, after the resignation of Naftali Bennett and the self-dissolution of parliament. At the same time, the country did not join the sanctions against Russia, although Lapid said that Israel refuses to be a “bypass road” to bypass.

Russia's Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar criticized the military operation in March. Shortly after the outbreak of hostilities, he called on all religious figures to use their influence to “stop the madness” that is taking place on the territory of Ukraine.

Moscow calls the goal of the special operation to protect the population of Donbass from the actions of Kyiv. President Vladimir Putin has also said that Russia is seeking to “denazify” and “demilitarization” Ukraine.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky suggested in mid-March that Jerusalem could be a potential venue for talks with Putin. He also offered then-Prime Minister Naftali Bennett to mediate negotiations with Moscow, Israeli radio station REKA reported, citing sources in Israel and Ukraine. Bennett met with Putin in Moscow in early March and also called him and Zelensky.

In early July, the Israel Hayom (Israel Today) newspaper reported, citing a member of the Lapid delegation with which the new prime minister went to Paris, that Israel was no longer involved in resolving the conflict with Ukraine.

On July 21, the Russian Ministry of Justice asked to liquidate the representative office in the country of the Jewish agency Sokhnut, which is engaged in repatriation to Israel and assistance to repatriates. According to a Jerusalem Post source, the authorities suspected the organization of illegally collecting information about Russian citizens. According to the newspaper, «Dry» received a demand to cease activities amid growing tensions in relations between the two countries due to Israel's position in relation to the Russian special operation in Ukraine, its support for Kyiv and President Zelensky. Israeli Prime Minister warned that the closure of “Sohnut” will have a negative impact on the relationship between the two countries.

Later, the Jerusalem Post also reported that the agency secretly began to prepare for relocation to Israel, since the management of the “Sohnut” found it impossible to resolve the legal status in this situation.

The Kremlin said that the claims against “Dry” are in the legal field. “This is due to compliance with Russian law. For reasons, please contact the Ministry of Justice, which made this decision,»,— Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

Lapid instructed the Foreign Ministry to develop policy measures in the event of the liquidation of the Jewish agency in Russia, Israel Hayom reported.
