“Multiple Russian Jewish organizations have received threatening letters from the Russian Justice Ministry regarding their work in recent weeks, similar to the letter received by the Jewish Agency earlier this month. The Jerusalem Post has learned that a few Jewish organizations operating in Russia are in a similar situation to the Jewish Agency, which has received a letter from the Russian government, stating that it may be considered to be a foreign agent, which could result in their organization being forcibly closed down. … the Russian government has ordered the Jewish Agency to cease all operations inside the country. … The forced closure of the Jewish Agency’s offices in Russia will have a serious impact on Israel-Russia relations, Prime Minister Yair Lapid warned on Sunday.” (07/25/22)
