DOMODEDOVO AIRPORT, February 20 (Itar-Tass) – Citizens of Russia and other CIS member-states, who returned in early hours of Wednesday from Syria, hope that the war in that country will end soon.
Russia’s Emergency Ministry plane brought 99 Russians and CIS citizens from Latakia to Moscow.
“Now the situation in Syria is tense,” said a Belarussian citizen, who returned from Syria. “But I hope that in the future the conflicting parties will come to agreement and there will be peace. Everybody is tired of this war.”
He thanked the Russian president and the Emergencies Ministry for providing an opportunity to leave Syria. “I want to thank that you had provided a plane and had not left us in the hour of need.”
“It was a very difficult decision to leave Syria. It took much time for us to take this decision, but the situation in Syria is tense, although this year it is much easier than last year,” said a woman of that flight.
The deputy head of the Emergencies Ministry’s international activity department, Igor Veselov, said Russians left Syria for different reasons such as “the difficult situation in those regions where they lived and their desire to meet with their relatives.”
“But everybody returned with joy,” he said.
