MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin is suggesting that a vast collection of Jewish books and documents that is the focus of a dispute between Moscow and Washington be given a permanent home in the Russian capital’s new Jewish Museum.
A U.S. judge in January ordered Russia be fined $50,000 a day until it turns over the so-called Schneerson Collection to Chabad Lubavitch of Brooklyn, N.Y. Putin said he would consider ordering the collection be placed at the new Jewish museum.
