MOSCOW, December 23 /TASS/. A Russian educational school will appear in the Syrain capital Damascus soon. The groundbreaking ceremony is to take place in January-February 2016, Yelena Agapova, the vice-chairman of the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society, told TASS on Tuesday.

"The foundation of a Russian educational school will be laid in the centre of Damascus soon - in January-February 2016. But we cannot name the exact date for security reasons," she said.

Though the project’s technical details are still being finalized, a land plot has already been allocated for the construction, Agapova went on to say.

"The Syrian government wished that a university could be built next to the school. They want a full-fledged educational complex. We can only welcome these plans and would like to see them implemented," she added.

"This humanitarian project is a clear signal from Russia that Syria would continue existing as a state despite the war and humanitarian disaster," the vice-chairman of the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society said.
