Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman will travel to Ukraine on Wednesday, just some three weeks after he went to Moscow.
Israel has walked a carefully balanced middle course during the Ukrainian crisis, not wanting to say anything that would antagonize the US, its greatest ally, but also not wanting to do anything to antagonize Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In Kiev Liberman is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Arsani Yatsenyuk, Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin, Chairman of the Ukrainian National Parliament Volodymyr Groysman and former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma. He will also meet representatives of the Ukrainian Jewish community.
He will also take part in the signing of a a trilateral Memorandum of Understanding between Israel, Canada and the Ukraine regarding agricultural development.
