77 Russians have arrived in Moscow from Syria
They were compelled to leave Syria due to hostilities, instability and aggression of the opposition, said the Russians who arrived from various Syrian regions.
According to one of them, a Damascus University Professor, rebel fighters engage in plundering and keep bombing the capital city, including the city centre.
He said he was grateful to Russia for bringing him back home.
The Russians who said they felt like going back home from Syria have been flown in to Moscow by Emergencies Ministry airliners.
The news is circulated by a spokesman for the Emergencies Ministry.
A charter flight has brought to Moscow 49 Russian citizens, mostly women and children.
28 other compatriots arrived in the Russian capital by an earlier flight. According to Russian diplomats, this is not a planned evacuation.
The returning Russians are those who lived in different Syria’s regions and lost their homes and were left without sustenance due to the raging armed conflict.
