Russia has never interfered in any foreign elections, including those in Israel, and has no plans to do it in the future, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

“It is out of the question. Russia has never interfered in elections in any country and has no plans to do it in the future,” he said in relation to allegations about Moscow’s possible meddling in the Israeli parliamentary elections scheduled to take place in April. When asked to comment on the relevant reports by some of the Israeli news outlets, Peskov said: “Don’t read these Israeli news outlets.”

On December 26, 2018, the Knesset (Israel’s parliament) passed a bill to dissolve the parliament and called an early parliamentary election for April 2. Benjamin Netanyahu’s government will continue to operate until a new cabinet is formed in late April after the vote.

On December 24, heads of Israel’s governing coalition parties decided that the Knesset be dissolved and an early parliamentary election be held.

Disagreements over the draft of ultra-Orthodox Jews into the army were the reason behind the decision. The next Israeli parliamentary election was initially planned to take place in November 2019.

@Sweety R, the Ultra Orthodox Ashkenasim discriminate, terrorize and exploit the rest of the country. They do not work and do serve in the army, have 8 children and live on the dole.

The Ashkenazim Zionists wine like US elites – who did not win an election.

The Zionists must face the facts of live. The Arab Jews have become by far the most numerous group in the country. They oppose being discriminated by the establishment.

The Ultra Orthodox Ashkenazim are marginal and cannot help to provide a majority for the Zionists any more. The Orthodox must change their habits, serve in the army and work like all others.

This internal state of affairs has nothing to do with any outside power.
