The Jerusalem Post / YAAKOV KATZ

Defense Minister Ehud Barak will travel to Russia on Sunday amid Israeli concerns over the sale of advanced military technology to Syria and Iran.

Barak’s trip to Moscow is the first visit of an Israeli defense minister to Russia, excluding Yitzhak Rabin, who traveled there when he served as prime minister and defense minister.
