Netanyahu said the gesture, which he intends to move forward, is in honor of the 65th anniversary of the victory over the Nazis later this year. This move comes amid growing concern in Russia that their role and sacrifice in the victory over Nazism is increasingly being underplayed.
Putin, saying that it was forbidden to forget the Nazi victims and that the Jews and the people of the former Soviet Union suffered more than anyone else at the hands of the Nazis, said he was currently in discussion with Moscow’s chief rabbi about the possibility of establishing a Holocaust museum in Moscow.
Netanyahu said he hoped the memorial would be erected before Putin’s next visit to Israel, expected within the year, and that at the same time the Russian prime minister could also take party in the ceremony in which Russia would formally take over control of the Sergei courtyard in central Jerusalem.
