Russia orders Jewish Agency to stop all operations in country

TEHRAN, Jul. 05 (MNA) – The Russian government has ordered the Jewish Agency to cease all operations inside the country, the local media in the occupied Palestinian lands have reported.

The order was given in a letter received from the Russian Ministry of Justice earlier this week. Officials in the Jewish Agency confirmed that the letter was received but would not comment on the response that is currently under consideration in the organization’s offices in Jerusalem in consultation with the Foreign Ministry and the Prime Minister’s Office, the Jerusalem Post has reported. 

"As part of the work of the Jewish Agency's delegation in Russia, we are occasionally required to make certain adjustments, as required by authorities," the agency said in response to a query from the JPost. "The contacts with the authorities take place continuously, with the aim of continuing our activities in accordance with the rules set by the competent bodies. Even nowadays, such a dialogue takes place."

The order comes amid growing tension between the Tel Aviv regime and Russia over the regime's stance regarding the ongoing war in Ukraine and its policy of standing with Kyiv and its embattled leader Volodymyr Zelensky.
