Donetsk Muslims performed Hajj for the first time

Donetsk, July 26, 2022

A group of Muslims from the community of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) together with pilgrims from Russia made the hajj to Mecca for the first time this year. It was reported on Tuesday by the Ministry of Information of the DPR.

“This event was held for the first time in the history of the DPR and is of great importance for citizens who profess Islam,” the ministry said in a statement. They added that the muftiyats of the Russian Federation provided the main assistance in organizing the pilgrimage.

According to the ministry, the Muslims of the DPR who received vouchers, together with other pilgrims from Russia, flew to Saudi Arabia on June 26, and after the end of the pilgrimage on July 22, they returned to the republic.

Five trips for the Hajj have been allocated for DPR Muslims this year. Rashid Bragin, chairman of the Muslim Religious Administration of the DPR, told TASS earlier that next year the republic expects to receive a large quota for hajj.
