The closure of the Jewish Agency in Russia (Sokhnut; deals with repatriation to Israel and assistance to repatriates) will affect relations between Russia and Israel, said Prime Minister Yair Lapid.
During the discussion of the situation under his chairmanship, Lapid said that relations with Russia are important to Israel. In addition, he stressed, the Jewish community in Russia is large, and its problems are discussed at all official negotiations with Moscow.
“The Prime Minister instructed the legal delegation to be ready to travel to Moscow as soon as Russian approval of the negotiations is received, and to make every effort to maximize the legal dialogue, while at the same time continuing to promote high-level political dialogue on this issue,” & mdash; The report says.
On July 21, the Ministry of Justice asked for the liquidation of the Russian representative office of the Jewish Agency ANO Sokhnut. It has offices and partners in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Samara, Rostov, Pyatigorsk, Yekaterinburg, Irkutsk, Novosibirsk and Khabarovsk.
The Jerusalem Post later reported, citing sources, that the organization was developing a plan to relocate the office. According to the publication, “the agency has secretly launched a plan to move its operations from Russia to Israel and remotely control the repatriation process.” It clarified that the agency's management cannot yet regulate its legal status, therefore, it is working on the creation of a remote appeal mechanism.
The Kremlin argued that the demand to liquidate the Jewish Agency was related to compliance with Russian law and had nothing to do with a possible brain drain. Prior to this, the Israeli channel «13Reshet» claimed that the requirement of the Ministry of Justice is connected with the departure of businessmen and scientists from Russia to Israel, because of which “the scientific and business potential of Russia is significantly reduced.”
