It damages the memory of all those who fell for peace and the right to life in the world.”

Member of Knesset Gilad Karib (Labor) also sharply attacked the invasion of Ukraine: “Unfortunately, this day can not be marked without an anxious look and a strong voice against Russia’s military activity in Ukraine’s sovereign territory – an activity that claimed the lives of many thousands. “It also reveals acts that are crimes against humanity.”

“The spirit of this day and the lesson we must learn from the terrible price humanity has paid for the aggression of Germany and its allies in World War II, obliges us to make a clear voice against Russian aggression and for the international effort to end the unnecessary and illegitimate war,” he added.

Member of Knesset July Joel Edelstein (Likud) said: “What we are witnessing these days, is a cynical exploitation of this great victory, of all. We are witnessing a cynical exploitation of one country, of this day, to justify in the twenty-first century in 2022, killing and murdering innocent civilians, Horrors, shootings with handcuffs, rape, house demolitions, shootings at schools, indescribable things. “
