On October 6, international public conference “The Role of Non-Governmental Organizations of Kuban in the Syrian Crisis Resolution” will be held at Kuban State University.

The event was organized by Deputy of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of Russia and confident to the President of Russia Dmitry Pirog; Department of Political Science and Political Management of Kuban State University and Autonomous Non-Profit Organization for Studies and Social Diplomacy “International Center Falkogrupp”.

Participants of the conference will include representatives of the administration of the Krasnodar region and the government of the Republic of Adygea; Deputy of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of Russia Murat Khasanov; representatives of the Yekaterinodar and Kuban Episcopate and Religious Administration of Muslims of the Republic of Adygea and the Krasnodar region; heads of Adyghe, Arab, Armenian, Assyrian and Kurdish national non-governmental organizations and diasporas; heads of regional charity organizations “Accessible Sport” and “Dostoinstvo”; journalists and students from Krasnodar universities.

Practical issues of cooperation between non-governmental organizations of Kuban and the Syrian civil society with the purpose of establishing reliable and long-term connections are planned to be discussed.

According to the organizers, Syria is a multinational country and many representatives of those nations live in Kuban and in the world with mutual respect for each other. The tragedy, which is currently taking place in Syria, causes deep compassion and a desire to help among the population of the Krasnodar region. The established close alliance among representatives of the governments, the civil society and the academic community of Kuban State University provides a unique opportunity to implement big projects.

Based on the results of the conference it is planned to adopt a resolution regarding providing charity support to the Syrian people, collection of sports equipment, Russian language and literature textbooks, stationary supplies for schoolchildren and educational toys as well as implementing joint Syrian-Russian projects in the field of sports diplomacy (Syrian-Russian exhibition matches, competitions; patronage of the Syrian sport and training of the athletes for global arenas).
