Russian term or phrase: Посидония Апамейского
«По мнению... [Посидония Апамейского], евреи - единственный народ в мире, относящийся враждебно ко всякому общению или сближению с другими народами, и считающий своими врагами все человечество.»

Posidonius of Apamea
Explanation:
POSIDONIUS OF APAMEA
His most illustrious student was Posidonius, who would bring a fresh depth and rigour to the Stoic tradition and who was the crown of non-Roman Stoic thought.
Almost nothing is known of the life of Posidonius despite the enormous fame he achieved in his lifetime and the lasting influence he had on subsequent philosophy. Born around 135 B.C., Posidonius reached manhood in Apamea, a city in northern Syria, and his wealth and intelligence furnished him with an excellent education.
