US media reports Moscow will respond if military equipment is supplied directly or through third party; separate report says Iran asked Russia for help on nuclear program
According to US media, Russia has threatened Israel with retaliation if Tel Aviv transfers defense equipment to Ukraine.
According to Bloomberg news, Russia would retaliate if Israel provided Ukraine with air defense systems directly or via a third party, citing two anonymous officials familiar with Russian policy. Nothing in the report indicated what steps Moscow would take.
At the same time that Iran is giving the Kremlin with attack drones, Jerusalem seems to be warming up to the idea of providing defense gear. Moscow’s connections with Tehran put “the whole world in danger” Prime Minister Yair Lapid said in an October speech to the foreign minister of Ukraine.
Future policy, nevertheless, is in doubt given Israel’s impending change of administration. The next government is expected to be formed by Benjamin Netanyahu, who is renowned for his cordial relationships with Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia.
The Bloomberg article comes after comments made by Dmitry Medvedev, a former Russian president, last month. He advised Israel against arming Ukraine because doing so would “destroy all diplomatic relations” between Jerusalem and Moscow.
