MOSCOW, March 26 (Itar-Tass) — Working commissions for admitting compatriots from Syria have been set up in Kabardino-Balkaria and Adygeya, Kabardino-Balkaria’s senator Albert Kazharov said on Monday.
“As of today an active work has been done in Kabardino-Balkaria and Adygeya. Working commissions for admitting our compatriots, living on the territory of Syria, have been set up,” Kazharov said.
He added that an adaptive centre was created in Adygeya. “There is similar experience by admitting our compatriots from Kosovo. Now at least 200 families are ready to pack bags and depart from Syria,” the senator said.
He stressed that during the visit he had not met anyone who would deny a possibility of leaving the country. “This will depend on the development of further events in Syria,” the senator noted.
A decision to send a parliamentary delegation to Syria was linked to the address of the Republic of Adygeya to the Federal Assembly to contribute to Syrian Cirkassians to returning to their native land. The Caucasian peoples’ communities, primarily in Turkey, Jordan and Syria, number over 3,000 people. Their ancestors left the Caucasus as a result of the war in the 19th century and settled down in the Ottoman Empire. According to different data, Syrian Circassians number from 50,000 to 100,000 people.
