I think, the Russian General Staff, incl. Gerasimov, is deeply ANTISEMITIC. They also consider Israel a part of the West and NATO, which it is. Russia is not a friend, and had never been a friend of Israel. It is the dedicated, sophisticated, duplicitous, treacherous, and vindictive ENEMY of Israel. The only things they have in common is the bloody history and the Russian speaking, largely Jewish or mixed CRIMINAL MOB.
The Russian populace at large remains deeply antisemitic, despite all their protestations. And the antisemitic card will be played. in one way or another in the coming Russian Presidential elections of 2024.
