HANDS OFF UKRAINE

A series of photos from the demonstration of support for Ukraine, in Tel Aviv.
FEB 26, 2022

Saturday night I walked with my camera to Rothchild boulevard, not expecting such a large gathering. To my surprise, the group that formed was not only massive, but ignited a passion within the streets of Tel Aviv. Ukrainians, Russians, and Israelis filled the city with songs of patriotism, chants of anger, and my Favorite "Putin Ben-zona" (Putin's a son of a bitch) 

As the war in Ukraine escalates, Israel has avoided taking a side due to close relations with Russia's military presence in Syria. However, since the rally, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid issued a clearer condemnation of Moscow Thursday, calling the invasion “a grave violation of the international order.”
