This is — one of the first character in the recent Russian policy toward Israel. In recent years, the successor of the USSR is rapidly losing its influence in the Middle East region. There are several reasons — the geopolitical picture seriously changed. Regimes of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi have sunk into Letu.Iran more closed to discover — in Moscow is well aware that the Persians — ally very unreliable and controversial, with its interests in the Caucasus, and there are friends with Russia, not because davneshnih and strong links as well as more than friends with whom. In addition, the situation in Syria seriously pounding not only on the Russian influence in the region and on the Iranian — and who needs feeble allies? Syria is a long time trusted associate of the former Soviet Union first, and then the Russian Federation, the war dragged into civilian clothes, and there are chances of the most severe that the Alawite regime ruling there, will fall. Style of Russia on the fast-growing brand new Sunni Middle East seriously undermined. In this regard, our homeland finds new leverage and new partners, profitable, not least economically. And Israel seems to be one of the possible allies.
No, our home is not the United States tends to take place on the Israeli political scene — this development is unrealistic. But cooperation with Israel gives some harsh Russian side benefits. Jewish government — one of the world leaders in the fields of high technology, weapons, agriculture, and medicine. In other words, in those areas which the Russian Federation at the moment actually needed.

The Israeli system is increasingly arise in Russian weapons systems: for example, a night sight, "Shaheen" are used Israeli matrix. Large pharmacological concern "TEVA" builds its own plant in Yaroslavl. Israel, despite the fact that almost does not build airplanes and helicopters, one of the leading aviation powers — in the Jewish state are developing avionics, radars, different types of aircraft armament and protection system. Israeli fighter project "Lavi" the 1987, which a number of characteristics overtook F16, was closed after the construction of 2-operating items due to circumstances purely political: U.S. feared opponent. Israel does not have to confront — and focused on the UAV.

Given the variety of Russian scientists, politicians and business people in Israel, such partner of, are playing catch-modernity, is very necessary. In addition, the Jewish government — is potentially very exciting mediator between Russia and the West, because of its own alienation from some of the latter, and at the same time, some good links. So the last time we will witness not just new applications, and perhaps new visits Russian favorites in Israel on this path is already heavily one of the main Russian partners — Kazakhstan.
