The Russian Embassy in Israel marked its “National Day” celebration on June 14 for the first time in Israel’s capital of Jerusalem.

“This is a holiday for Russia, and it’s a celebratory day that was initiated and takes place in Jerusalem, and I assume that there will be many more days like this one in Jerusalem,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in his remarks held at Sergei’s Courtyard, a historic Czarist-era compound built in the late 19th century, which the Israelis transferred to the Russians more than a decade ago.
