Zelensky worries Israel may distract world's attention from him and Ukraine

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.

  • Political scientist Konstantin Blokhin believies that combining the financial assistance will affect USA's support for Kyiv both qualitatively and quantitatively. In his opinion, if the Palestinian-Israeli conflict expands, the United States will prioritise Israel as this is America's closest ally in the Middle East.
  • Russian political scientist Dmitry Rodionov believes that nothing will change for Ukraine should the conflict between Palestine and Israel be resolved quickly. Ukraine will only face problems if the confrontation drags on for weeks or months.
  • Military expert Boris Dzherelievsky believes that the conflict in Ukraine could be frozen in light of the escalation in the Middle East. Kyiv's Western allies will be willing to make territorial concessions to end the fighting.
