Vladimir Putin Coming to Netanya Monday

The brand-new Victory Monument in Netanya

The brand-new Victory Monument in Netanya

President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, Israeli President Shimon Peres and Jewish leaders from around the world will unveil the brand-new ‘Victory Monument’ in Netanya, Israel this Monday, June 25.

The Monument design was the first-ever joint initiative between Israel and Russia to commemorate the Red Army. The newly elected President Putin will be visiting Israel specifically for the inauguration ceremony.

The Monument was funded by major Jewish philanthropists, led by Keren Hayesod – UIA, and the World Forum of Russian Jewry.

A world-class design commemorating the Red Army’s victory over Nazi Germany in WWII, the Monument honors the millions of Red Army soldiers who perished in the war, among them 120,000 Jews.

Alexander Levin, President of the World Forum of Russian Jewry and an American citizen, will be representing Russian-speaking Jews from North America.

“This incredible monument symbolizes the historical and ever-important role the Red Army played during WWII and its part in defeating the Nazis and their horrors. Millions of Russian Jews around the world are united at this moment in solidarity for the brave Red Army soldiers,” said Levin.

More than half a million Jewish soldiers fought with the Red Army in WWII against the Nazis – 120,000 were killed.

About two years ago, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu proposed the idea of the monument to President Putin on his visit to Moscow. Putin promised to come to Israel for the inauguration ceremony.

    I had no idea he was coming! Sure hope Bibi has a serious talk with him concerning Syria!

    WWII with Germany could have been lost without the help of the Russian army. We need to thank them all who helped stamp out the evil conceived in the minds of Nazi leadership and its wicked leader. May God comfort all those families who lost their fathers, sons and relatives in that horrible war. It took the combined effort of many nations to destroy the Nazi war plans. The Russian people deserve alll of our sincere appreciation for all their sacrifices during that great conflict. They helped free many POW camps which will never be forgotten by all the families of the prisoners and the prisoners themselves.

    And then there was Molotov-Ribentrop… But who's counting…

  4. Rachelle Roby says:

    That is beautiful art.

    Yori Yanover That was a completely unnecessary comment. The people of the Soviet Union had nothing to do with the Molotov-Ribentrop pact, but they suffered horribly under Lenin, Stalin, Nazi occupation, and with the huge casualties suffered by the Soviet army.

  6. The Molotov – Ribentrop pact only bought time from the inevitable clash. Hitler was always hellbent on Lebensraum in the east. It is interesting to note that Ribentrop's predecessor in the foreign ministry was Litvinov. As he was Jewish, Stalin had him removed in order to appease the Nazis.

  7. Yori Yanover says:

    You probably meant Molotov's predecessor.

  8. Yori Yanover says:

    In Netanya we have a 2-mile park dotted with wonderful, mostly whimsical sculptures, against the background of the sea. Chicago has a similar display in West Rogers Park, but ours are more fun and it's warm here.

  9. Yep Sorry. Forgive my faux pas. It's a Friday and I'm feeling very tired :-)

  10. Ruth Hirt says:

    Whoa-ha, Israel, caution. Sorry, alleged ally as this is wanting in, lacking "authenticity". *~*

    Ulk ! Now it happened.
