At Netanyahu's reelection party, foreign leaders come bearing lesser gifts - Israel Election 2019 -
At the end of the meeting with Netanyahu, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told local reporters that Israel had “demonstrated understanding” toward Putin’s call for an end to Western sanctions against Damascus.

Netanyahu generally omits these details from his briefings in Russia. But behind the scenes it’s an open secret that the price of Israel’s continued freedom of action in Syria against Iranian entrenchment is not disrupting the Assad regime’s recovery. Russia has been asking the United States for a long time to recognize Assad’s renewed regime and to lift all the international sanctions. After just recently boasting to the whole world about rescuing the White Helmets, it’s becoming clear Israel is now lending a hand to the restoration of their victimizer — a brutal dictator.
