Talks Fail Between Chabad and Russian Government Over Return of Religious Texts

Negotiations between the Russian Federation and the Chabad-Lubavitch movement over the return of Jewish texts in the custody of Russian state agencies have failed to date, according to a new filing in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

In a statement (PDF) filed with the court yesterday afternoon, Chabad asked U.S. District Chief Judge Royce Lamberth to begin issuing monetary sanctions against the Russian government until the texts are returned.
