Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Russian president Vladimir Putin agreed on the continuation of current policy regarding Israeli airstrikes in Syria in their Sochi meeting on Friday. The meeting between the Israeli and Russian heads of state lasted five hours, leaving Bennett in Russia for Shabbat. Construction and Housing Minister Ze’ev Elkin, who also acts as the ministerial liaison to the Knesset, accompanied Bennett to his Sochi meeting.

"The meeting was as warm and intimate as any over the last decade," Elkin said in a press briefing following the meeting. "The dialogue between the prime minister and the president was very warm, they also spoke on personal matters," Elkin said, adding such matters do not usually come up at such high-level meetings. Bennett and Putin discussed efforts to halt Iran's military nuclear program and agreed on the establishment of a task force to find solutions for Russian tourists to enter Israel, with the Russian Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine yet to gain approval from the FDA.
