Russian PM Putin to open official party branch in Israel


Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's political party, "Yadinaya Rasiya" (United Russia), will open a branch in Israel, marking the first time ever that a Russian party will have an official mission in the country.

Likewise, Israel's ruling party, Kadima, is slated to open its own branch in Moscow. The party already has offices operating in France and the United States. The move is aimed at boosting the party's support among Russian-speaking voters who are eligible to vote in their native country's elections and mostly tend to back Putin's party.
