Shas MK: Deri's comments on Russian immigrants were misinterpreted

MK Yaakov Margi (Shas) said in an interview on Reshet Bet radio on Tuesday that MK Yoav Ben Tzur’s recent comments on immigrants from Russia were “miserable”.

Margi also said that Minister Aryeh Deri's comments on the Russian immigrants, which angered Yisrael Beytenu chairman Avigdor Liberman, were misinterpreted. He explained that Deri talked about hundreds of thousands of immigrants who did not accumulate years of working experience and that Liberman demanded a pension budget for them. Margi added that Deri's remarks came after months of silence, in the face of incessant incitement by Liberman.
