- In Rare Move, Russian Embassy to Host its National Day Party in Jerusalem – Raphael Ahren
The Russian embassy in Israel is hosting its annual National Day reception in Jerusalem, in a nod to Moscow’s recent recognition of the western part of the city as Israel’s capital.
Russia’s incoming ambassador Anatoly Viktorov has been inviting guests to a June 14 reception at Sergei’s Courtyard, a historic complex in the Jerusalem neighborhood known as the Russian Compound, which Israeli authorities handed to Russia a decade ago in a goodwill gesture. (Times of Israel)
