MOSCOW, October 9 (Itar-Tass) - Russia will continue to help Russian citizens, who want to leave Syria for some time, the Russian Foreign Ministry stated on Wednesday in comments on the transportation of a group of Russian compatriots to Moscow from the Syrian city of Latakia by a Russian emergency airplane.
“The humanitarian operation was carried out to ensure proper security by the Syrian authorities,” the ministry stated. “Russia will continue to help Russian citizens, who want to leave Syria for some time, as the domestic armed conflict lingers on in the country,” the Russian ministry reported.
On Tuesday, the Russian emergency airplane has taken 76 people, including 47 Russians, six Ukrainians, one Moldovan citizen and 22 Syrians from Syria. About 960 citizens of Russia and the CIS states have fled Syria by the Russian emergency airplanes from the beginning of this year.
