Russian President Vladimir Putin informed leaders of Russia’s Jewish community about Moscow’s diplomatic efforts to aid hostages in the Israel-Hamas conflict, stating that Russia had achieved “specific results” by utilizing its contacts with the political wing of Hamas.

While he did not provide further details, Putin emphasized that Russia’s efforts aimed to assist not only Russian nationals but also elderly Holocaust survivors and their families.

“You know, since the situation became more tense in the Middle East, Russia has been doing everything to help people who became hostages,” Putin said.

“As is known, our Foreign Ministry worked through the political wing of Hamas and, on the whole, there have been specific results.”

“They include elderly people and their family members who survived the Holocaust,” he said.

“But I know, I understand, that it is vital to carry on with these efforts. And that is what we are doing,” he said.

Putin’s comments come amidst Russia’s support for Palestinian statehood and criticism of Israeli military actions in Gaza, along with recent tensions between Russia and Israel over criticisms of Russian policy and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov’s remarks on the Holocaust.
