    The Foreign Ministry said that consular services in Kyiv and Lviv will be available intermittently and on a reservation basis. Over 80 people have already received service from the staff in Kyiv, it said in a statement.
    The staff of the Israeli mission in the Ukrainian capital left the city before the outset of the conflict four months ago moved its operations to the city of Lviv in western Ukraine.
    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is scheduled to give a speech to the Hebrew University in Jerusalem via video link, his second adress to the Israeli public after his speech in the Knesset in March.

    Meanwhile, fierce battles are raging around the eastern city Severodonetsk, the last major Ukrainian stronghold in the Donbas region which has mostly fallen in the hands of Russian-backed rebels.
