Russia is one of the major players in the Middle East. Before the fall of the Soviet Union, Syria, Iraq, Palestine Liberation Organization, and Gamal Abdel Nasser’s Egypt had all been under the influence of the Soviet regime. In the Post-Cold War era, Moscow’s influence became less obvious. However, Russian policy in the Levant faced new challenges. One of them was mass emigration of Jews from former Soviet republics to Israel after 1991. What is the current status of relations between Moscow and this diaspora? Does the Kremlin see Israel as a serious partner in foreign affairs? Is Middle East still the arena where interests of Washington and Moscow clash? These are the issues we will discuss during this meeting.

Michał Wojnarowicz is an Israeli policy analyst at the Polish Institute of International Affairs. He has worked at the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Tel Aviv, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Office of the Prime Minister, and the Information Office of the European Parliament. He graduated from Warsaw University where he majored in international relations, security, and strategic studies. His research interests include bilateral relations of Israel, its security policy, and the Middle East peace process.
