Russian Jewish leaders said they would not meet with Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov until he takes a clear stand on the anti-Semitic comments made recently by Communist lawmaker Albert Makashov. Zyuganov’s request to meet with the leaders came after he met with Israel’s ambassador to Russia and a German Jewish leader in an apparent attempt to improve his party’s reputation in light of Makashov’s remarks.
