Russia claims Israeli ‘mercenaries’ fighting alongside far-right in Ukraine

Russia claimed on Wednesday that Israeli mercenaries are fighting alongside the far-right Azov Regiment in Ukraine, agencies have reported.

“Israeli mercenaries are practically shoulder to shoulder with Azov militants in Ukraine,” the spokeswoman of Russia’s Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, told Sputnik radio.

Zakharova added that she will say something that politicians in Israel, who “exaggerate” the misinformation campaign against Russian, will not like. They will be interested soon, she said.

According to media reports, the names of mercenaries fighting in Ukraine include people from 45 countries. Safa news agency said that a Russian media source noted that the most prominent are from the US, Britain, France and Israel. One of the names, said the source, is that of a former Israeli ambassador to Belarus.
