The Israeli Foreign Ministry reports that of the approximately 13,000 Israeli citizens in Ukraine in early February, fewer than 1,500 are now in the war-torn country. Of course, efforts continue to help these Israelis leave Ukraine, especially those areas now occupied by Russian forces.

Half of these remaining Israelis are trapped in active war zones, or have voluntarily remained in place, probably to care for the elderly and bereaved who are unable to escape. Others don’t have valid travel documents.
