Chief Rabbi of Ukraine blessed Valeriy Zaluzhny for the victory
Zaluzhny wrote about this on his Facebook page.
"Today, I had the honor to meet and welcome Chief Rabbi of Ukraine Moshe Reuven Azman at the General Staff.
I received a blessing for the victory and sincere words of support to Ukraine and its Armed Forces in resisting the Russian aggression," the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces noted.
"Our peoples know what the struggle for survival is. And this war is nothing but the struggle of the Ukrainian people for their existence.
On the Day of Remembrance of the Babyn Yar tragedy, it is painfully difficult to talk about its recurrence in Mariupol, Bucha, Irpin, Izium and other cities. This war showed who is on the side of good and who is the personification of evil. Rabbi Moshe Reuven Asman clearly says that today Russia is a fascist state. And his authoritative opinion counts a lot in the modern world.
I believe that in the conditions of such a neighborhood Ukraine should become, by analogy with Israel, a military state.
We discussed the appointment of a Jewish military chaplain and the spiritual needs of servicemen. I am sincerely grateful for the treatment of our wounded soldiers in Israel and the humanitarian aid provided," Valeriy Zaluzhny wrote.
