Naama Issachar: I believe Putin when he says things will be okay

Jailed Israeli-American backpacker Naama Issachar tells Russian television she “believes” Russian President Vladimir Putin when he says things will turn out alright in her affair.

Putin made the comments while meeting with Issachar’s mother Yaffa alongside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“When I saw my mom on TV with such important people, I was very moved that [Putin] told my mother everything would be okay with my wonderful family,” Issachar told the local station.
