Hundreds of Israelis demonstrated in support of Ukraine outside the Russian embassy in Tel Aviv on Thursday.

Waving Ukrainian flags, some protesters carried signs and shouted slogans, including “Putin is the new Hitler,” “Putin is a murderer,” and “Stop Putin, stop war,” Israeli media reported.

“Honor to the heroes, honor to Ukraine,” they chanted, according to Times of Israel.

Some – of Russian descent — burned their Russian passports.

Many of the protesters have Ukrainian roots as well, Channel 13 reported.

Four people were arrested for spraying graffiti on the embassy wall.

“The police will enable freedom of speech and freedom of protest but will not allow violations of the law and of the public order,” the local police department said in a statement, according to the Times.

Passing drivers honked their horns and shouted their support.

Similar protests took place in Jerusalem and Haifa.

“The Russian attack on Ukraine is a serious violation of the international order,” Foreign Minister Yair Lapid stated on Thursday.

“Israel condemns that attack and is ready and prepared to offer humanitarian assistance to Ukrainian citizens,” he said.
