Russia expresses upset over Israeli stance on Ukraine through Palestinians

Earlier this week, Russia’s Foreign Ministry summoned Israel’s Ambassador in Moscow Alexander Ben Zvi.

Unhappy with Israel taking Ukraine’s side in the war, Russia sharply criticized Israel for its actions on the Temple Mount, a senior Israeli diplomatic source said on Wednesday.

“Russia is unhappy with us about Ukraine, and is taking it out on us through the Palestinians,” said the source. “This is their traditional stance on the Palestinians, and they play with the volume knob. We didn’t think Russia would be happy with our stance on Ukraine, and we’re not happy with their attack on a sovereign state.”

Still, the source stated, Israel has to consider its security, with an emphasis on continuing the deconfliction mechanism with Russia in Syria.

At the same time, Israel sees some caution in the Russian response, pointing out that the readout of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s call with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas did not include a condemnation of Israel.

Well, well, well. Putin is pissed at Israel for taking Ukraine’s side in the war, but neglects to issue the mandatory condemnation of Israel over ongoing street violence in Jerusalem. Proof positive that Israel is taking Russia's side in the Ukraine war, right?
