Russian President Vladimir Putin thanked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and confirmed he will visit Israel, the Russian Embassy in Israel confirmed in a tweet sent on Wednesday.


Netanyahu and Putin met on Wednesday in Moscow, where Netanyahu said that Israeli-Russian relations are like a ‘brick’ ensuring regional security.

Putin will attend the inauguration of a special monument in Jerusalem honoring the fallen men and women who defended the Soviet city of Stalingrad during WW2. The siege lasted roughly five months and cost the lives of over one million soviet citizens. Withstanding the German onslaught, it marked a deceive victory for the Red Army and was the beginning of Nazi defeat on the Eastern Front.


As of 1961 the city is named Volgograd.
