As the long and bitter winter sets in on the war-ravaged land of Ukraine, and as more than 10 million Ukrainians are left with no electricity or heating, the eminent humanitarian crisis is upon us.
So it’s not surprising that Benjamin Netanyahu’s name keeps popping up as the preferred leader to negotiate a settlement between President Putin and President Zelensky.
In a recent interview held on a popular and respected American news show, Netanyahu confirmed that he was approached to mediate a resolution between Russia and Ukraine:
“I can tell you that I was approached, about a year ago, to enter this and I said ‘No; our prime minister tried his hand at it at the time, unsuccessfully, and I didn’t want to step on anyone’s toes,” Netanyahu said.

In the interview, Netanyahu stated that addressing the Ukrainian issue will be one of the first things that he will look at if and when he heads Israel’s newly elected government, but noted the importance of balancing the concerns of Ukraine with the security relations with Russia and the implications for Israel’s strategic operations in the Middle East against the Iranian threat.
