In an attempt to minimize the impact of the shipment, the Ministry explained in a statement that it will be destined for Ukrainian civilian and emergency organizations.
Earlier this month, the Haaretz newspaper revealed that the government of the ultra-right-wing Naftali Bennett will increase the shipment of military equipment to Ukraine.
While the increase in aid would be a substantial step, for the time being no offensive weapons will be delivered to fight Russian forces, diplomatic sources told the newspaper at the time.
In recent months, relations between Moscow and Tel Aviv have deteriorated following the stance adopted by the Israeli authorities, who added their vote at the UN to several measures against Russia sponsored by the United States and its European allies.
The Israeli criticism of the military operation launched by Russia to protect the inhabitants of eastern Ukraine did not please Vladimir Putin’s administration either.
