Israel–Ukraine relations are foreign relations between Israel and Ukraine. Both countries recognized each other de facto on 11 May 1949 as the Ukrainian SSR and established de jure diplomatic relations on 26 December 1991 as an independent state. Israel has an embassy in Kyiv.
Ambassador Yevgen Korniychuk said that Ukraine recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital, addressing an event hosted by Housing Minister Ze'ev Elkin to mark 30 years of diplomatic relations between Israel and Ukraine.
They maintain relations with their relatives and friends in Russia, and this make the interstate relations very special". In a meeting with Netanyahu in June 2016, Putin described Israel and Russia as "unconditional allies" in "efforts to counter international terrorism".
(Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen do not recognise Israel as a state.) (Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan do not recognise Israel as a state.)
Israel and Romania have very strong friendly relations, based on a long tradition of cooperation. The diplomatic relations between the two countries were established when Romania recognized the State of Israel immediately after its creation, on 11 June 1948.
Relations restored on 20 January 2019. The Republic of China granted de jure recognition to Israel on 1 March 1949.
Israel–Turkey relations were formalized in March 1949, when Turkey was the first Muslim majority country to recognize the State of Israel. Both countries gave high priority to military, strategic, and diplomatic cooperation, while sharing concerns with respect to the regional instabilities in the Middle East.
Israel has enjoyed a special relationship with NATO for over three decades and was the third country to gain non-NATO alliance status as early as 1989.
The region was ruled under the British Mandate for Palestine until 1948, when the Jewish State of Israel was proclaimed in part of the ancient land of Israel. This was made possible by the Zionist movement and its promotion of mass Jewish immigration.
Israeli–North Korean relations are hostile. North Korea does not recognise Israel, denouncing it as an "imperialist satellite state". Israel in turn does not recognise North Korea and regards South Korea as the sole legitimate government of Korea.
Distance from Ukraine to Jerusalem is 1,876 kilometers.
This air travel distance is equal to 1,166 miles. The air travel (bird fly) shortest distance between Ukraine and Jerusalem is 1,876 km= 1,166 miles.
The British controlled Palestine until Israel, in the years following the end of World War II, became an independent state in 1947.
Palestine's Early Roots
From about 1517 to 1917, the Ottoman Empire ruled much of the region. When World War I ended in 1918, the British took control of Palestine.
The land of Israel is the birthplace of the Jewish people. Approximately 4,000 years ago, Abraham moved to the land of Israel where he lived with his family, raised his children and purchased land to bury his wife and himself. After Abraham came Isaac and Jacob.
In addition, six of these countries — Iran, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Syria and Yemen — do not allow entry to people with evidence of travel to Israel, or whose passports have either a used or an unused Israeli visa.
The idea is not just absurd because NATO stands for North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and Israel is nowhere near the North Atlantic, but because Israeli security has never been better and doesn't need NATO protection. Furthermore, U.S. security would be undermined by admitting Israel into NATO.
In April this year, the four countries participated in NATO's foreign ministerial meeting and they agreed to continue supporting Ukraine and to step up cooperation given the "global implications" of Russia's war on Ukraine. Australia, Japan and South Korea are all U.S. security allies.
A ranking of military strength in the Middle East for 2021, released by Global Firepower, places the Turkish army at No. 1. It surprisingly places Israel fifth, and its arch-nemesis Iran third.
The Soviet Union, despite its official view of Zionism as, in Lenin's words, "bourgeois nationalism," became the first country in the world to give legal recognition to Israel on this date in 1948, just three days after the state declared its independence.
Pakistan officially endorses the two-state solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict and has maintained its longstanding position of non-recognition of Israel until an independent Palestinian state is established within the pre-1967 borders and with East Jerusalem as its capital city.
General. Japan supports a two-state solution whereby Israel and a future independent Palestinian state live side by side in peace and security. Japan has continued support for the Palestinians' right of self-determination, and their desire to establish a state.
Turkey supports the efforts of the State of Palestine to be recognized as a state in international forums.
Much of the exports are sold to the United States and Europe. Other major regions that purchase Israeli defense equipment include Southeast Asia and Latin America. India is also major country for Israeli arms exports and has remained Israel's largest arms market in the world.
In 1917, in order to win Jewish support for Britain's First World War effort, the British Balfour Declaration promised the establishment of a Jewish national home in Ottoman-controlled Palestine.
Before David Ben Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel, announced Israel's Declaration of Independence on May 14, 1948, 600,000 Jews lived in the land. According to estimates, approximately one-fifth – or up to 120,000 Jews were living in Jerusalem – the newly-declared capital of the nascent state.
