Israel to keep health insurance for Ukrainians - Ukrainian FM

MOSCOW. Aug 15 (Interfax) - Israel will keep health insurance for Ukrainians staying in the country, and a solution to the problem will be found in the near future, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said following a conversation with Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen.

"I spoke with [Eli Cohen]. He assured me that health insurance for Ukrainians in Israel will remain in place; the problem will be resolved soon. I thank my Israeli counterpart, who is personally taking care of this. We also discussed a broader bilateral agenda," Ukrainian media quoted Kuleba as saying on his social account.

Media reported earlier that Ukrainian citizens staying in Israel, including refugees, were deprived of the right to receive medical support free of charge due to a lack of coordination between several Israeli government ministries.
