Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev sat down for a special interview with Channel 2 News’ Yonit Levi, which was broadcasted in Israel last night (Saturday). In the interview, Medvedev said that his country’s relationship with Israel is strong and that the Kremlin is not intervening in the upcoming US presidential election. “Our relations with the US have plummeted to a historic low,” said Medvedev.

In regards to Russia’s support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and relationship with Iran, Medvedev said that his country has relationships with other countries that need to be improved. “We delivered the S-300 missile system to Iran only after there was an understanding with the world powers,” he added.

Medvedev also commented on Russia’s support for the anti-Israeli resolution passed by UNESCO recently: “I think that this whole issue was blown out of proportion. This was the tenth time that such a resolution was passed. Russia has always recognized the Jewish people’s right to Jerusalem.”  

As JOL reported last week, Medvedev also said during the interview that he does not believe that it is possible to influence the outcome of the upcoming US presidential election.
