Israeli finance minister added to Kyiv’s ‘dead list’ — RT Russia and the former Soviet Union

The Mirotvorets site called Avigdor Lieberman an “agent of influence of Russia”, who participated in acts of “humanitarian aggression” against Ukraine

Israeli Finance Minister Avigdor Lieberman has been added to the database of the “Enemies of Ukraine” Sunday at the controversial site of Mirotvorets.

The authors of the site, which allegedly contains links to Ukraine’s security services, described Lieberman as “Russia’s Agent of Influence” who had manipulated information of public importance in favor of Moscow. They also accused him of having participated in acts of “humanitarian aggression” against Ukraine.

Among the actions that led to Lieberman being put on the list were his refusal to fund an Israeli field hospital in Ukraine in March and his neutral stance on who was responsible for the massacre in the kyiv suburb of Bucha in April. The website also shared a link to an article, claiming it had ties to Russian gas giant Gazprom.

Ukrainian authorities have frequently expressed disappointment with the level of support they received from Israel during the conflict with Russia. The country provided Kyiv with only humanitarian aid and vital defense equipment, but no weapons or ammunition. Israel has also refrained from joining international sanctions against Moscow. Last week, Liberman said that Israeli aid to Ukraine since fighting between Russia and Ukraine began in late February amounted to some $40 million.

Liberman has served as finance minister since 2021. He is a seasoned politician, having held various senior positions in the Israeli government over the years, including foreign minister, defense minister and deputy prime minister.

The 64-year-old is also the head of Yisrael Beiteinu (Israel Our Home), which holds seven seats in the country’s parliament, the Knesset. Liberman was born in Chisinau, Moldova when the republic was part of the Soviet Union and immigrated to Israel in 1978.

The Mirotvorets website, translated as “peacemaker”, was launched in 2014, positioning itself as an independent database run by anonymous moderators to help Ukrainian authorities and “special services” apprehend pro-Russian terrorists, separatists and war criminals, among others.

However, some have called the database a government-backed ‘kill list’ after several people, including writer Oles Buzina, politician Oleg Kalashnikov and Russian journalist Darya Dugina, were murdered shortly after. after posting their profiles on the website.

There have been allegations that the world’s richest man, Elon Musk, was put on the database in mid-October but quickly removed from it. The alleged addition came after Musk proposed a peace plan, which envisioned kyiv ceding territory to Moscow.
