Syrian refugees settle down in Adygeya countryside
Over 400 Syrian citizens of the Cherkess and Adyghe descent who have moved to Adygeya since the beginning of hostilities in Syria will take permanent residence in the countryside, the regional administration reports.
"Local authorities should actively support the accommodation of compatriots coming from Syria in the countryside and assist in their social adaptation," the report quoted Adygeya Prime Minister Murat Kumpilov. He spoke at a meeting of the commission coordinating support to Syrian resettlers in Adygeya.
Some 418 compatriots from Syria are living in Adygeya. Sixty of them have jobs, and 62 are college students.
The majority of families wished to live in villages.
Kumpilov suggested that republican departments and municipal authorities should consider accommodation of the resettlers in vacant homes in the countryside.
The commission ordered the republican agriculture ministry to organize farming seminars for the resettlers.
