On Wednesday Netanyahu and Putin met in Moscow for what they estimated is the 11th time since December of 2015. Netanyahu stated that each year more than 400,000 Russians go to Israel to visit and 200,000 Israelis go to Russia (Moscow). According to Putin, an estimated 1.5 million descendants of those coming from the countries, which comprised the Soviet Union, contributed to the creation and development of the Israeli State and funcion as a bridge between Israel and Russia.

Trump and Netanyahu are old friends. Now remember that even Donald Trump’s father was already friends with Netanyahu in the 1980s, as were Jared Kushner’s parents – well before the Soviet Union collapsed. Netanyahu was Israel’s UN Ambassador at the time. Trump and Netanyahu are both facing corruption allegations; they have both been backed by Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, who gave at least $20 million to benefit Trump’s campaign, i.e. after he became the nominee.
