According to a statement by the Kremlin, Putin offered his condolences to Bennett following the terrorist attack in Be’er Sheva, in which an Islamist terrorist murdered four Israelis.

Putin gave Bennett his assessment of the negotiations with Ukraine and the “progress of the special military operation” in Ukraine.

At the end of the conversation, the leaders agreed to continue contact.

Bennett’s office remained silent on the existence and contents of the conversation.

Bennett has held multiple conversations with Putin and Ukrainian President Volodomir Zelinskyy in recent days, a desperate but apparently unsuccessful attempt to bring an end to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Israel has attempted to maintain a seemingly neutral line and has kept a low profile by showing some support for Ukraine and aligning itself with the West while trying not to anger Moscow, with which it has ties and with which it coordinates its military actions against terror targets inside Syria.
