War, terror, chaos in the Middle East benefit only Russia

The aggressor is now igniting and fomenting war in the Middle East. It's time for our allies and partners, the US, the EU, and Israel, to stand stronger together

My analysis of what is happening in Israel as of 6 am on October 7.

The terrorist attack was planned in advance, and the terrorist groups had been preparing and getting financed for months.

A massive terrorist attack on Israeli communities on a religious holiday, on the participants of the Nova music festival in the open air near the Israel-Gaza border - this is what happened on the morning of October 7.

Terrorists armed with firearms have taken hostages, including women, children, and the elderly. These hostages were abducted while bound and forcibly dragged through the streets barefoot.

That's who the terrorists' main "target" was.

And now the main question is, who organized it, and who benefits from it? Iran voiced its support for the terrorist attack on the 7th of October.

Russia is behind Iran. Iran and Russia have been supporting Hamas for years. It was Russia's massive purchases of Shahed drones in Iran that financed the drones and terrorist missiles that attacked peaceful settlements in Israel yesterday.

The massive nature, secretive preparation and coordination of the terrorist attack indicate that the attackers were trained in camps in third countries (Syria, Iran). 

War, terror, and chaos in the Middle East benefit only Russia. The aggressor is now inciting and fomenting war in the Middle East as well. It is time for our allies and partners, the United States, the EU, and Israel, to become stronger together. Ukraine and Israel are firm allies of the United States and the EU. Hamas is an ally of Iran and Russia. This is what we have to understand!
