The government of the Russian Federation demands to stop the work of the Jewish Agency (Sokhnut) on the territory of the country. It deals with the repatriation of Jews from all over the world to Israel .

It is reported by  The Jerusalem Post .

The order to end all Sokhnut operations was received this week. The organization’s office in Jerusalem, together with the Israeli Foreign Ministry and the prime minister’s office, are preparing a response.

As you know, the order came against the background of growing tension between the countries. Thus, Israel supports Ukraine and President Volodymyr Zelensky, and Russia, in turn, condemns the strikes on Syria, which Israel is accused of.

The ban on the activities of the Sokhnut could undermine the ability of Russian Jews to emigrate to Israel. To date, thousands of people have completed the paperwork, but cannot fly out of the country due to lack of flights.

According to the publication, members of the Jewish community in Russia fear for their lives and say they are being arrested. If Sokhnut’s work is banned in Russia, it will be the first time in 30 years that repatriation activities have been banned in the country.

“This morning I was informed about the decision of the Russian Ministry of Justice. As you know, the Jewish Agency is the central body of the government and the ministry for helping the immigration of Jews from all over the world to the State of Israel. We must ensure that the scale of their activities is maintained, as it has been for many years. I appealed to the Prime Minister to work with the Moscow administration to resolve the problem,” Minister for Aliyah and Integration Pnina Tameno-Shete commented on the situation.

As you know, relations between the two countries have been deteriorating for several months. Earlier, in an interview with an Italian television company,  Lavrov compared Zelensky  to Hitler. The minister said that Adolf Hitler had “Jewish blood”, and the most ardent anti-Semites, as a rule, were Jews. Israel was  outraged  by such statements.

The Russian Foreign Ministry did not stop there and after the scandal with Lavrov decided to continue the series of accusations against the Israeli government, which supported Ukraine’s struggle for independence. The words of Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, who was indignant at Lavrov’s comparisons of Jews, Zelensky and Hitler,  were called “anti-historical” in Moscow .

At the same time, Russian President Vladimir Putin had to  apologize  to the Israeli Prime Minister for Lavrov’s statement.

  1. Simple solution, just send all the Russians in Israel back to where they come from. Israel is crawling with Russians, and you can be assured not all of them are Jews.

  2. “Israel is already preparing a response to the unfriendly actions of the Russian Federation.”

    Since this war started, Israel has been quite reluctant to help Ukraine and, concurrently, to punish mafia land.
    What now?
