Israel transfers only non-lethal military equipment to Ukraine.
Israel has banned the supply of Spike missiles manufactured using its technologies to Ukraine.
This is reported by the publication Axios .
Israeli officials said the Israeli authorities had turned down a request by the United States, which wanted Ukraine to receive German-made Spike anti-tank missiles using Israeli technology.
The report notes that Israeli Defense Ministry official Amir Eshel met in Washington two weeks ago with US Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl to discuss security cooperation between the countries.
Amir Eshel emphasized that the country would not agree to such a step, since Israel transfers only non-lethal military equipment to Ukraine.
A senior Israeli official said Tel Aviv was concerned that Russian soldiers would be killed with Israeli-made weapons, which could lead to Russia harming Israel’s security interests in Syria.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that Israel would support Ukraine , in particular by preventing Russia from evading sanctions and helping to restore our country.
