A delegation of Russian journalists, media figures and writers intends to visit the Gaza Strip in the coming days in the context of a solidarity program in support of the besieged Strip held under the slogan "Moscow is with you, Gaza."
The delegation will be led by noted Russian journalist Alexander Prokhanov, a strong advocate for the Palestinian cause. He is known for writing scathing articles against the Israeli occupation state in his newspaper Zavtra (Tomorrow) and refuting Israel's lies about the Palestinian rights.
The delegation also includes writer and political analyst Shamil Sultanov, the head of the Russia-Islamic world strategic vision group, and a number of Russian journalists and writers who defend the Palestinian rights in the media.
The solidarity program "Moscow is with you, Gaza" started last November with an aid convoy of cancer medicines. Funds were collected from Muslim Russians in the holy month of Ramadan to organize this convoy.
For his part, head of Jerusalem social and cultural center in Moscow Ali Abu Isam said that a galaxy of Russian ophthalmologists would visit Gaza as part of this solidarity program next February in coordination with the Palestinian ministry of health.
Other Russian events and activities in solidarity with Gaza will be organized to help Gaza people and put the Russian society in the picture of the unjust Israeli siege.
