Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu landed at about 4:30 a.m. on Thursday after his diplomatic visit to Russia, on what could turn out to be fateful day in his political career as Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit is expected to release his decision on whether to issue indictments against the prime minister.

Netanyahu was asked about his legal situation during his briefing with reporters, following his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but ducked the issue and said he would deal with it when he returns.

Netanyahu and Putin spent much of their meeting on Wednesday discussing Russia’s S-300 anti-missile systems in Syria, with Netanyahu saying afterward that Israel will continue to operate as it feels necessary against Iranian targets there.This was the first extended formal meeting the two leaders had since the downing of the Russian intelligence plane over Syria in September.
