Ukraine repeatedly votes against Israel in U.N. but is making demands

Ukraine’s Embassy in Israel has launched a campaign against the Jewish State accusing it of not providing Ukrainian citizens with prostatic limbs “only because they are Ukrainians.”

“Many Ukrainians lost body parts in Russian attacks,” the online campaign launched on Sunday declares. “Israel is an international power in the field of prostheses. We expect the Israeli government to do the right and moral thing and help Dalil and many other Ukrainians – get back on track.”

“There is no justification for the continued delay in aid in this humanitarian field,” Ukraine demanded.

The campaign is accompanied by a photo of Dalil, 19, who has lost both his lower legs.

“The Israeli government is refusing to treat him only because he is a Ukrainian,” the poster charges.

In response, UN Watch, an NGO that monitors the world body, pointed out that since 2015, Ukraine has voted against Israel in 78% of the UN resolutions about the Jewish state, including one just last week.

“Dear Ambassador Yevgen Korniychuk: Last year Hamas terrorists fired 4,000 rockets at Israeli civilians. When the UN adopts Palestinian-sponsored resolutions that condemn Israel for defending itself, why does Ukraine vote for 78% of them?” UN watch asked.

In a total of 122 resolutions involving Israel, Ukraine voted against Israel in 95 of the resolutions and abstained in 27 of them. It did not vote in favor of Israel even once.

In comparison, Canada voted in favor of Israel in 104 resolutions, 85% of the time, voted against Israel in only three resolutions and abstained 16 times in 13% of the votes.

Conversely, in three UN votes this year, Israel joined Ukraine to condemn Russia’s aggression and disinformation, at great diplomatic risk.

However, last week, when 22 nations, including the US, Canada, Germany, and the Netherlands joined Israel in opposing the anti-Israel Pillay Commission, Ukraine declined.

Senior officials in Jerusalem told TPS that they were “surprised” by the “very aggressive” post by the Ukrainian embassy, especially in light of Israel’s mobilization to transfer extensive humanitarian and medical assistance to Ukraine, “at an unprecedented level,” including flying children with cancer to Israel for treatment, sending the fully-equipped Kochav Meir field hospital, medicines, ambulances, food, generators and more.

Ukraine has demanded that Israel equip it with military gear. Seeking to avoid a clash with Russia, Israel has lent its support to Ukraine while maintaining a semblance of neutrality and has transferred tons of equipment in civilian aid.

    Why surprised?

    J/Post tells the story….March 7 2022

    Ukraine is home to a rich Jewish history, as well as a dark past of death, pogroms, persecution and more.

    We are so predictable.. forever helping everyone and turning the other cheek…the ‘eternal do gooder’ even if they spit in our face!
    ENOUGH of this virtue signalling, it is time to stare those who do not support us in the eye, harness more pride and no longer take any BS from anyone!

    • Lynne Newington says:

      Good for you Naomi…….I shudder at the platitudes and I’m m not Jewish! just speaking from experience.
      When I began taking to pen and paper I would always sign off with “beware men of goodwill”..
