Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu left Israel Sunday for a two-day visit to Ukraine on Sunday.

Netanyahu is scheduled to meet with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky and to take part in a memorial ceremony at Babi Yar, the notorious site where tens of thousands of Jews were murdered during Worl War II.


The prime minister’s visit to Kiyv (Kiev) is the first by a sitting Israeli prime minister in 20 years.

Reports suggest Netanyahu may seek to mediate between Moscow and Kiev, as Israel maintains good relations with both countries.

In January, Israel and Ukraine signed a free trade agreement.
