Several Jewish organizations may be declared “foreign agents” in Russia. Their representatives have already received corresponding letters.
Organizations funded by the governments of Israel and the United States received letters from the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation. They warn that associations can be declared “foreign agents” and forced to close. At the same time, organizations that do not receive foreign funding did not receive such letters.
Representatives of one of the organizations said in a media comment that “there are no changes” in their work.
The publication notes that the Jewish Agency “Sokhnut” also received a similar “warning” earlier this month.
According to journalists, Israel is preparing numerous steps in case the Sokhnut offices in the Russian Federation are closed. In particular, Jerusalem may drag out proceedings regarding the ownership of the Alexander Compound, recall the ambassador and strengthen military support for Ukraine.
