“It’s just a job,” Slava Frolova noticed a striking similarity between the two photos made with a difference of 80 years.

On the faces of the relaxing personnel of Auschwitz in the 1940s and those of the employees of the secret Russian computer center in 2022, there is not a shred of remorse for what they are doing. At the same time, behind the scenes, the first ones were sending hundreds of thousands of people to the gas chambers; and the others are the main specialists in laying trajectories for the Russian missiles that are destroying the infrastructure of Ukraine and killing Ukrainian civilians.

“It’s just a job” for them.

The Likud party, led by Benjamin Netanyahu, has officially become the winner in the already regular early elections to the Knesset. Likud has secured 32 Knesset seats out of 120, and the same number of seats received Netanyahu’s coalition partners. This means that after 3.5 years of fragile balance between the two camps the period of turbulence in the Israeli politics may be over.

By the way, literally on the eve of the elections, Netanyahu promised to bring good news to Ukraine in case of victory. We will soon find out what it will be — the current Prime Minister Yair Lapid has already congratulated Bibi (Netanyahu’s nickname in Israel) on his convincing victory and wished him success in forming a new cabinet.

According to Israeli media reports, while in the US on an official visit President of Israel Isaac Herzog will present evidence that although spelled differently Shahed and Geran are in fact one and the same thing. Israel’s evidence is maximally trustworthy, since it is difficult to find a greater expert on Iran and its weapons in the world.

Herzog’s information may be of great importance for Ukraine, since the alliance of the two terrorist states will be formalized almost officially. The Iranian threat to Israel and Ukraine, in turn, will go over into the category of a common problem, giving cause for closer cooperation.

According to the New York Times, Israel has already passed intelligence to Ukraine allowing to better track Iranian drones. There was information also the other day about the possible destruction by the Israeli armed forces of the places of production and storage of Iranian drones in Syria.

Although official Israel still does not comment on the possible direct connection between these events and the active requests of the Ukrainian side to take a clearer practical position on the issue of supplying Ukraine with technologies and weapons, especially air defense and missile defense systems, it is possible that the coincidence is not accidental.

One way or another, with the start of the arrivals of “Shaheds” to Ukraine, the Iranian threat ceased to be purely the issue of Israel and Middle East.
