UKLFI Charitable Trust held a webinar on Ukraine, Israel, Mediation and Double Standards with Prof. Eugene Kontorovich, Chair: Natasha Hausdorff on Sunday 27 March 2022.
Many countries have responded to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by imposing severe sanctions on Russian individuals and the Russian economy. This has prompted some to ask why similar sanctions are not imposed on Israel. Are double standards being applied and, if so, by whom? At the same time, Israel has emerged as a leading mediator in the conflict, apparently trusted by both Vladimir Putin and Volodymyr Zelensky. In this webinar, Prof Eugene Kontorovich, who was born in Kyiv, compares the territorial and other issues relating to the Ukraine and Israel, and reflects on Israel’s new status in international diplomacy.
