Issues of the Palestinian-Israeli settlement were the main focus of a meeting between the Russian president’s special envoy for the Middle East and African countries and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov and Hamas’ Political Bureau member Mousa Abu Marzook, the Russian foreign ministry said on Monday.

“Key attention was focused on the problems of the Palestinian-Israeli settlement on the basis of the generally recognized international legal documents, including UN resolutions, and on efforts towards restoration of Palestinian national unity on the basis of the agreement signed between Hamas and Fatah in Cairo in October 2017,” the ministry said.

Hamas controls the Gaza Strip, where the situation has aggravated dramatically in the recent months. Militants are shelling Israel’s territory from the Gaza Strip whereas Israel’s Defense Forces are retaliating at their positions.

Moscow maintains regular contacts with Hamas. The latest visit to Russia of a Hamas delegation took place in March 2018.

Has Mikhail Bogdanov red the Hamas charter? art.2 : Hamas is part of the Muslim Brotherhood (banned in Russia, Syria, Egypt, etc). The goals of Hamas? Global jihad!

Instead building peace and good neighbourhood, since 1994, both Hamas and PLO/PNA have worked at brainwash all the children into killing Jews; public places, streets and plazas are named from murderers of Israelis, PNA pays huge pensions to murderers jailed in Israel and what they say in Arab is very different from what they say at the UN!
