Chelyabinsk, January 16, 2020

A new mosque is to be built in Chelyabinsk this year. The head of the city, Natalya Kotova, provided the place for its construction. On Thursday, January 16, the place for new mosque was approved at a public hearing. It will be built in the village Airport, located next to the airport of the city.

The construction of the mosque was supported by residents of the Airport village. Its population consists of about 50% of Muslims; most of them are elder people and find it is difficult for them to get to the city to perform the prayer.

In addition, airport passengers will have chance to pray in a new mosque before departure.
