President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky is concerned about the possible weakening of international attention to the Ukrainian conflict due to the crisis in Israel.
According to him, if Kyiv is deprived of support, "time will play on Russia's side.” Zelensky also expressed hope for continued assistance from the United States.
The US administration may consider combining assistance to Israel and Ukraine. It was reported that Washington was considering a possibility of funding both Israel and Ukraine as part of one bill. However, American Senator Josh Hawley urged to redirect all the funds assigned to Ukraine and support Israel instead.
The Americans came to realise that they would have to either leave the region or weaken their presence there. It is Russia that is filling the vacuum now
