Ukrainian PM Groysman to visit Israel in May

Israel`s Foreign Ministry says Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with his Ukrainian counterpart during the latter`s upcoming visit to Israel next month, after a previously scheduled visit between the two was nixed in protest over Kyiv`s support for a UN Security Council resolution against Israel`s West Bank settlement policy, The Times of Israel reports.

Volodymyr Groysman, who became Ukraine`s first Jewish prime minister last year, will arrive for a two-day visit in Israel on May 14, in what reports in Hebrew-language media say will mark a formal end to the tensions between Jerusalem and Kyiv, reads the report.

The Ukrainian prime minister was originally scheduled to arrive in Israel for a two-day visit in December that was set to include meetings with Netanyahu, President Reuven Rivlin and other top officials.
