Well, no surprises there it was just a matter of time before Putin’s Russia would join the chorus against Israel and singing loud and clear upfront was Russian Ambassador Anatoly Viktorov.

The Ambassador made it clear that Russia favoured the two-state solution and did not countenance Israel annexing territory in Judea / Samaria the so-called West Bank.

The Russian Ambassador to Israel could not restrain himself from referring to international law as a means to buttressing his countries objections to Israel’s self-determination within its historical borders.

I could go on ad nausea about international law and the Jewish States international legal rights within the land in question but why bother when the nations of the world are playing at kangaroo courts and we are now being lectured by the Russian Federation as to propriety in international law when Putin’s Russia is in clear breach of international law for the last six years since the illegal annexation of Crimea, which is the most blatant theft of land since the second world war.

Then followed a hollow if not illegal referendum that harked back to the dark days of the Soviet era.

Russia then went on to block a U.N. Security Council resolution that, among other things, supported Ukraine’s territorial integrity.

There were 13 yes votes and 1 abstention.

Please Messrs Putin and Viktorov when you are endeavouring to impose a settlement to Israel’s disadvantage just make sure you’re in tune with the truth and not just miming the words for your own ends.

When your political behaviour is stripped of its slogans , catch-phrases, and false ideologies you are left with the dung heap of your own making.

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)
