About it writes on Thursday, February 16, the news Agency «Interfax».
«To some extent such statements are potentially harmful to developing fine relations between our countries. Relations with Russia are excellent and we appreciate the position of the Russian leadership, and therefore a little sad that people, especially from the party «United Russia» speak out», – quotes the edition of the review the Ambassador, made by the footsteps of the scandalous performance of the Vice-speaker of Goodmy Milonova.
We will remind that the Deputy of the EP this Sunday at the conclusion of the procession around St. Isaac’s Cathedral, said: «Christians have survived, despite the fact that the ancestors of Boris L. Vishnevsky and Maxim Reznik L., members of legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg, boiled us in the boilers and gave at the mercy of the beasts.»
Koren noted that such statements are very badly perceived in Israel. «I see how it is responding heads of Jewish organizations in Russia. I am very glad that it react negatively and non-Jews – communities, politics. It is much more important.»
He added: «the Theme of St. Isaac’s Cathedral is absolutely none of our business, we do not intervene. This is a domestic issue.»
