Moscow, July 23, 2019

About 25 thousand Muslims from Russia will be able to perform hajj this year as Saudi Arabia increased the quota for 5,000 people for the Russian Federation. According to the hajj tour operators, the quota is almost filled to date.

Russian authorities consider the question of assigning the quota of 25,000 places to Russian Muslims.

Muslims from about 64 regions of Russia will go to hajj this year. The largest number of pilgrims is going to hajj from the regions of the North Caucasus. The leaders in the number of pilgrims are Dagestan, Chechnya, Ingushetia, Tatarstan and Bashkortostan.

More than 2000 pilgrims will travel from Moscow too.
