The first Jewish refugee camp since the end of World War II was opened in the Ukraine on Thursday, in the suburbs of Kiev.

The Israeli Deputy Minister for Regional Cooperation Ayub Kara (Likud) was invited for the opening and toured the site.

“There is no difference,” he said, “between the group from Yemen who arrived in Israel a few days ago to escape from threats to their existence, and the Jewish refugees on the Russia-Ukraine border who also live in great danger.”

Kara does not find the local solution to their plight satisfactory, however. He called for an operation to fly them to Israel “immediately.”
