Russia: Syrian women in Moscow make calendar to send to Russian troops at frontline

Former residents of Aleppo now living in Russia were working hand on a special calendar featuring female Syrian refugees in Moscow, Friday, which they plan to send to Russian servicemen currently operating in Syria to thank them for their efforts in the conflict.

Twelve Syrian women participated in the photo shoot, representing different Syrian cities, including Aleppo, Tartus, and Latakia, among others. The featured women are dressed in traditional Russian clothing. The pictures are accompanied by light-hearted or touching quotes reading, "Is that your aircraft carrier parked near the coast?" or "tell me who is your commander and I will tell you who you are," among others.

The calendar also features specific dates marking significant changes on Syria's frontline.

A former resident of Aleppo, Maram Hemsi, said that she had taken part in the project "to thank Russia for supporting us, for supporting the Syrian army and all the people of Syria."

The calendar is to be sent to Russian servicemen deployed in Syria on Saturday.
