(Dan Tri) – Ukraine wants security guarantees from the West similar to the level of protection that the US provides to Israel.

`An agreement between the US and Ukraine must be no less effective than the US memorandum of understanding with Israel, the effectiveness of which was confirmed by the joint actions of the allies in the process of blocking the mass attack on

The Ukrainian government is negotiating a series of treaties aimed at promoting relations with Western countries until Kiev is granted full NATO membership.

Tehran launched a series of drones and missiles at Israel on April 13 in retaliation for an airstrike that Tehran said was conducted by Israel on April 1 against Iran’s consulate in Damascus, Syria.

According to Israel, Iran’s attack resulted in only `minor damage` because the US, UK and France used their military assets to help stop most of Iran’s missiles.

Western officials have made it clear that Kiev should not expect the kind of intervention the West extended to Israel last week.

`Bringing NATO forces into direct conflict with Russian forces, I think that would be a dangerous escalation,` British Foreign Secretary David Cameron said.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky expressed disappointment after the US and its allies focused their efforts on defending Israel against a major attack by Iran over the weekend, highlighting the limits of Western support for Kiev.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Ukrainian officials seem to sense a paradox.

However, Western experts say that because the opponents of Israel and Ukraine are two different countries, the reaction of the US and its allies in the two cases is understandable.

Russia is an energy power, possessing 5,000 nuclear warheads, so the West will have a more restrained approach towards Russia.

Mr. Zelensky said that Ukraine also needs protection like Israel, which is not a member of NATO.

Article 5 of the NATO Charter is the provision on collective defense.

The West has provided military aid to Ukraine since the early days of the conflict.

Ukraine is seriously lacking an air defense system when aid from the West has been stalled for many months.
