"In Israel, we are now going to the third round of parliamentary elections. This means that some processes have been suspended for more than a year. We signed a free trade zone agreement with Ukraine a year ago. It was not ratified. It could not be ratified by Israel. Therefore, it is not working right now," reads the message.
