TELL AVIV, March 5. /TASS/. The generation of WWII veterans saved the world from the worst atrocities in the history of the humankind, Israeli opposition leader Yitzhak Herzog said at a briefing on Sunday ahead of his visit to Moscow.
"In Israel, we have tens of thousands of veterans of that war. I pay huge respect for them and their contribution. That generation saved the world of the worst atrocities ever," he stressed.
Herzog, who leads the Zionist Camp bloc in the Israeli parliament Knesset, noted that his father, Israel’s sixth President Haim Herzog, "had always great respect for Russia, for the Red Army which he had met at a border in Germany as he came as a Lieutenant Colonel in one the best units of the British Army from the West in liberating Europe."
"He met with Russian commanders who came from the East and he always spoke very highly of the Soviet contribution to freeing the world from the Nazi war machine and had great respect for the casualties which Russia and its allies paid in the war," he said, adding that while in Moscow he plans to visit the Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 "to pay my tribute to the enormous contribution of Russian soldiers and commanders.".
