Talk about Soviet Army & Air Force post-WWII anti-semitism. It's a prominent subject for discussions nowadays. Who on Earth would ever allow Rabinovitch fly choppers in USSR let alone Mi-24?
Comrade, that remind me of Russian joke:
Immigrants to Israel from former USSR are asked about the examples of antisemitism they faced there.
A former air force major stands up -
"Back in the 70s we were stationed in Egypt and international situation was getting worse by the day. Then, when our squadron was told to prepare to bomb Tel-Aviv in case of war, they wouldn't let me fly!"
