Putin's Visit and Hope of Israel

The Zionist regime of Israel values ​​Russia as a country that plays an important role in strengthening peace in the Middle East. This statement was conveyed by Israeli President Shimon Peres and was expected from Putin's periodic visit to the region.

Moscow as a force that has influence in the Middle East, hopes to get a response and Putin is currently in occupied Palestinian land. Putin was the first Russian President to visit occupied Palestine in 2005.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Putin was among those who built closer relations with Israel. This closeness makes Russia one of the initiators of an international forum which acts as a mediator of the Israel-Palestine conflict or known as the Middle East Quartet. With this role, Russia has strengthened its position as a trans-regional player in the Middle East.

The Kremlin leader was invited to Tel Aviv to attend the award ceremony for the role of the Soviet Union's army in defeating Nazi Germany. Israeli officials send great praise to Russia with the aim of encouraging Moscow to change its policies in the Middle East.

Israel hopes that Russia will support the West's steps towards the Islamic Republic of Iran in the 5 + 1 group negotiations and Putin is also expected to give optimism to the Zionists. However, the Kremlin's stance regarding nuclear negotiations was arranged in the framework of Russia's foreign policy with the West. Basically, bargaining at the level of Tel Aviv and Moscow officials cannot create a fundamental change in Russian policy.

Russia's attitude regarding Palestine is also like that. Israel does not have enough bargaining power to push Russia to change its position in the Middle East Quartet negotiations. Indirect competition between Moscow and Washington in various parts of the world will continue, including the Middle East as long as the United States insists on building missile shields in Eastern Europe.

The West has in recent months been waging widespread propaganda to damage Russia's image in the Middle East. Western powers judge Russia as a barrier in realizing its scenarios to change the balance of power in the region. One of the scenarios is military intervention in Syria and forcing regime change in the country. But until now, Russia has twice used veto rights at the UN Security Council and blocked Western destructive efforts.

The West suggests internal political conflict in Syria as one of the phenomena of the Arab revival. In this way, they accused Russia of being opposed to the people's movement and the rise of the nation in the Middle East. Therefore, one of the aims of Putin's visit was to improve the image of Russia which had been damaged by the West.
