Ukraine might move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Dozens of Ukrainian politicians have called on new president Volodymyr Zelenskiy to back a bill to recognise Israel’s capital and follow the United States’ historical lead.
Almost 90 out of 450 members of The Verkhovna Rada have submitted the legislation for a vote according to media reports at the end of last week.
The Ukranian State recently held general elections when Zelenskiy, a former comedian, triumphed over former President Petro Poroshenko.
Politicians had submitted a similar proposal during Poroshenko’s time in office. And Likud MK Minister Ze’ev Elkin raised the matter at a meeting with Zelenskiy shortly after his victory.
But analysts have reportedly stated the move is not among his immediate considerations.
