Relations with Israel are a very special part of the foreign policy of the Soviet Union. Recently published official documents, memoirs of the authors who witnessed the events of the past reveal a complex interaction of factors which led first to the break of diplomatic relations between the two countries in 1967 and then to a prolonged period of hostility and alienation between them. Only to the end of the 1980-s with the rise of Soviet perestroika which opened way for the reassessment of the Soviet foreign policy, the process of normalization between the USSR and Israel was launched.
