The Russians see Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman as "one of their own" revealed a document released by Wikileaks on Sunday.

The document revealed comments by official Israeli delegate Yuval Fuchs who said Lieberman's June 2009 visit to Russia was conducted in Russian and the foreign minister "shared stories about Moscow, and smoked, creating a comfortable atmosphere with his Russian interlocutors." Lieberman "behaved like an old friend" Fuchs said, and noted that the Russians "acted as if they already knew him," the Wikileaks document stated.  Fuchs was also revealed to have said that the foreign minister's visit centered on a lengthy meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during which Lieberman said Israel was not planning a military strike on Iran.
