MOSCOW, June 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Syria's land, the cradle of Christianity, should finally attain long-cherished peace after the forthcoming elections, hopes Sergei Stepashin, the head of the oldest Russian nongovernmental organization, titled Imperial Orthodox Palestinian Community.
“These are the first contested elections in the country. The Syrian people will finally make their choice”, he said on Tuesday.
He believes that the Syrians, as people of an ancient and rich culture, will make the right choice, adding that Russia has always supported the chosen head of the Syrian state and would keep doing so in the future.
Stepashin recalled that the Russian government had made a decision to support Syria’s economy, in particular, the country’s industry, schools and roads. Russia has already sent ten batches of relief supplies to Syria through the society.
“Russia will continue helping Syria further on,” Stepashin said.
