MOSCOW, August 28 (Itar-Tass) - An Il-62 plane of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry (EMERCOM) has brought to Moscow the second group of Russians who wanted to leave Syria.
"The Il-26 plane which flew from Latakia landed at the Domodedovo airport at 10:14, Moscow time. It brought 27 Russians who wished to leave Syria," EMERCOM spokeswoman Irina Rossius told Itar-Tass on Wednesday. They are mostly women and children. They were accompanied by EMERCOM psychologists.
On Tuesday, EMERCOM airlifted 89 people from Syria, including 75 Russian citizens.
Meanwhile, the Russian embassy in Syria reported earlier on Wednesday that Russian diplomats were not being evacuated and the mission worked normally. The embassy's representative noted that security measures have been maintained at high level since the beginning of the crisis in Syria.
