As we reported earlier, Israeli Embassy in Ukraine announced the closure of a diplomatic mission following the decision of the Israeli Ministry of Finance.

The diplomatic agency stated that they were forced to take such measures because "the vital interests of the State of Israel were harmed”.

The conflict was caused by the decision of the Ministry of Finance to levy a tax on representative expenses of diplomats, which were not backed by receipts. In a joint statement of the Foreign Ministry and Defense Ministry Working Committees on Monday evening, the move was described as a serious blow to Israeli diplomatic and military representatives' emolument.

Israel Ambassador to Ukraine Joel Lion commented on the temporary closure of the diplomatic mission and said that he hoped for a quick solution to the crisis with the country's Ministry of Finance.
