Bankrupt Airline Leaves Israelis Stranded in Ukraine

Dozens of Israelis have been stranded since Sunday in Kiev, Ukraine, after the Ukrainian airline with which they had flown, AeroSvit, went bankrupt.

Most of the Israelis on the flight are Breslav and Chabad Chassidim, who visited the gravesite of the first Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, on the 200th anniversary of his death. Among the stranded Israelis is also Dr. Eli Dr. Eli Shussheim, chairman of the pro-life NGO Efrat, whose organization was awarded the Jerusalem Prize during the Besheva Magazine’s Jerusalem Conference on Monday.

While some of the passengers had their lodging expenses and meals paid for, some remained with no solution. The Chief Rabbi of Ukraine, Rabbi Moshe Reuven Asman, came to the airport and assisted the travelers in finding lodging and food.

Israelis now fear that will have to remain in Ukraine for another few days due to stormy weather.
