Putin says Hanukkah spirit should extend to international affairs

During his meeting with Netanyahu in Paris, Putin extends his good wishes ahead of the “very bright” Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, which “symbolizes the triumph of light over dark.”

Putin hopes that the spirit of the holiday will extend to “international affairs,” as well.

He adds that Moscow is “satisfied” with the progress of its bilateral ties with Israel, as well as with the mechanism, which he acknowledges was proposed by Netanyahu, for ensuring that the Israeli and Russian militaries don’t step on each other’s toes in Syria.
