Two groups of Syrian repatriates come to Kabardino-Balkaria
On June 22, two groups of repatriates from Syria in the total number of 31 persons arrived in Nalchik, said Akhmad Stash, the head of the "Peryt" – a public organization for helping compatriots to come to homeland of their ancestors.
"Two groups of repatriates have come to Nalchik from Syria. We met one group at the Mineralnye Vody Airport, the other one – at the Nalchik Airport. Their total number is 31 persons. We placed 15 of them at the tourist camp, and seven – at the sanatorium 'Elbrus'. The remaining 9 repatriates were taken by their relatives. Now, we help them with all the necessary documents," Mr Stash said today to the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.
As noted by Beslan Khagazhey, a member of the board of the "Peryt", since the beginning of the armed conflict in Syria, Kabardino-Balkaria has received over 220 repatriates.
"Most of then were accommodated at the sanatoriums 'Elbrus' and 'Druzhba'. There are not enough places for all of them at the sanatoriums; that is why, we've begun hiring flats for them; several repatriates were placed in the tourist camp," Mr Khagazhey has added.
According to his story, the accommodation of immigrants is paid by sponsors.
