...re-establishing the Russian presence in Israel

What the heck does that mean? At least 15% of the population is Russian/Soviet born, including a lot of Russian mafia-types as well as non-Jews.

There were so many socialists in the Israeli elites that the USSR thought Israel would be pro-Soviet when it was established in 1948.

I’m sorry, I should have been more specific. I was told by the local Christians that Putin was trying to recover Russian Orthodox property they had lost/given up on over the Soviet years. Make more sense? Was just passing along some comments from people I spoke with in Jerusalem and Jericho.
