Today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flew from Moscow on the same plane as Naama Issahar, who was released from the Russian colony after pardon by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Israeli and US citizen Naama Issahar was detained on April 9, 2019 in the transit zone of the Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport when she made a transfer during a flight from Delhi to Tel Aviv. The reason for the detention was found in her luggage 9.6 grams of a narcotic substance (hash).

First, Issakhar was accused of drug possession (Part 1 of Article 228 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, “Illegal possession, transportation, manufacture of narcotic drugs”). Later, a more serious article was added to the prosecution – "Smuggling of narcotic drugs in significant amounts", Art. 229.1 of the Criminal Code.

Last summer, Naama Liad's sister said in an interview with The Jerusalem Post that her sister has no criminal past, she served in the army and does not understand what is happening to her now.

We saw her the other day. We were allowed to see her only through a glass partition, and she cried all the time. She is on the verge of collapse. We have to get her out of there. She does not speak Russian. No one speaks English, and the guards shout at her when she does not understand what they want. She can't talk to anyone. She does not receive any information. She has no idea what is going on. She is completely ignorant. How can she survive morally in such conditions? She served in the IDF and was an outstanding soldier. We want her country to fight for her, as she fought for the country for three years,

Said Liad.

Liad added that she and her mother Jaffa called on Israel and the United States to fight for the liberation of Naama.

On October 11, 2019, it became known that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed the history of Naama Issahar with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Netanyahu asked to ease the punishment and conditions of detention of an Israeli woman. In January 2020, Vladimir Putin held talks with Netanyahu and met with Naama Issahar's mother during his trip to Jerusalem. After this meeting, Naama Issahar petitioned for pardon. Ekaterina Semenova, deputy chairman of the Clemency Commission on the territory of the Moscow Region, said Issakhar "partially acknowledges that she actually smuggled drugs," which were intended for her own use.

On January 29, 2020, the Russian president signed a decree to pardon an Israeli woman, which entered into force on the day it was signed.
