During his visit to Kyiv on 16 February 2023, Israel’s Foreign Minister Eli Cohen met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and promised that Israel would provide Ukraine with a civilian aerial threat warning system in three to six months, Haaretz reports.

Earlier on 16 February, Cohen stated at a joint press conference with his Ukrainian counterpart, Dmytro Kuleba, that Israel was developing an aerial threat warning system for Ukraine – a promise that was also made by former Defense Minister Benny Gantz.

It was the first visit of a high-ranking Israeli official to Ukraine since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine almost a year ago.

Overnight into 16 February, Russian troops conducted another massive missile attack targeting Ukraine’s power facilities. Ukraine has suffered from Russian missile strikes from day one of the all-out war. Last fall, Russia started a campaign to destroy the Ukrainian energy infrastructure, which involves massive missile strikes every 2-3 weeks.
