The Israeli police will serve together with Ukrainian law enforcement officers in places of mass residence and pilgrimage of Hasidic Jews in Ukraine, the press service of the National Police of Ukraine in Cherkasy region said.
They will be helping Ukrainian counterparts to maintain public order in the Ukrainian town of Uman. Israeli law enforcement officers were instructed and provided with information regarding safety rules and the code of conduct.
