Breaking News

Nikolai Patrushev, the director of the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation, on Wednesday handed over to Berl Lazar, the chief rabbi of Russia, copies of documents from the central archives of the Russian FSB regarding the destiny of Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg.

“We made copies of the documents about the life of Raoul Wallenberg and events associated with him and turn them over to you,” Patrushev said.

The FSB director said Russia’s chief rabbi had earlier addressed a request to the Russian president, wishing to receive materials about Wallenberg. The request was made in connection with the Museum of Tolerance Berl Lazar founds in Moscow.
