Russian students express solidarity with quake-affected people in Syria

A number of Russian students extended their condolences and sincere feelings of solidarity with the Syrian people after the earthquake catastrophe hit Syria last February.

Meeting the Syrian Ambassador to Russia Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari at the Embassy chancery, the students confirmed that they are aware of difficulties of situations the Syrian people undergo due to the quakes and that prompted them to initiate financial donations and assistance to provide simple support to the Syrian people.

In turn, al-Jaafari highly appreciated the student’s initiative which demonstrates that the Russian youth generation has high human values in the footsteps of their fathers and grandfathers, emphasizing that the Syrian Embassy has experienced this high feeling since the first day of the earthquake disaster, as more than 200 volunteers rushed to the embassy to help collecting the humanitarian assistance.
