Israel’s dilemma in the face of deepening Russia-Iran ties

An EMET Webinar

Since the start of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Tehran and Moscow have increased their military and economic cooperation. Late last year, Russia reached an agreement with Iran to open a manufacturing plant on Russian soil. Iran in turn is set to receive a number of Russian Sukhoi 35 fighter jets in March. Many speculate that Russia will also sell Iran its S-400 air defense system.
With heavy Russian and Iranian influence on Israel’s borders in Syria and Lebanon, Jerusalem sees this as a major threat. What does this changing dynamic mean for Israel and how should it respond?
Join Alex Grinberg, an expert on Iran, Russia and the Arab world, as he examines Iran’s nuclear threat, the relationship between Iran and Russia, the current status of the war in Ukraine and what it all means for Israel.
