Russia plans to restore mosques in Donbass

Donetsk, May 27, 2022

Russia will help the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) to restore two Orthodox churches and two mosques. It was stated on Friday by the head of the Council of Imams of Muslim Religious Administration of the DPR, the chairman of the Muslim community of Donetsk, Rashid Bragin.

“Our imam and other representatives of the Islamic clergy of the DPR and I met with Russian Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin and, among other things, discussed the issue of restoring places of worship in the republic,” the Donetsk News Agency quotes him as saying.

Bragin noted that Russia promises to help restore the Ahat Jami mosque in Donetsk and the Suleiman the Magnificent and Roksolana mosques in Mariupol, which have repeatedly come under fire from Ukrainian troops. According to him, it is also planned to restore the Orthodox St. Iberian Convent in Donetsk and the St. Nicholas Church in Mariupol.

Yet, the chairman of the Muslim community added that restoration work will begin immediately after the cessation of constant shelling.
