Putin said in remarks following his meeting with Issachar, "I have met Naama's mother. It's clear to me that she is from a very good, honorable family," said Putin. "I know the position of the prime minister who is asking me to make an appropriate decision. All this will certainly be taken into account when the final decision is made," Putin said." The mother is very worried, I can see that. I told her and I want to repeat it again: everything will be fine," he added.
