In Volzhsky, the second largest city in the Volgograd region, an acute situation has developed with a massive influx of citizens of Uzbekistan. Labor migrants and their families expect to return to Tashkent on two special trains, which are scheduled to depart on September 29 and October 1. Dozens of people have to wait for these trains in extremely difficult conditions. If not the help of Volgograd Muslims, men, women and children could be on the streets.
Mufti of the Volgograd region Abdulla Haji said that the citizens of Uzbekistan began to stay in Volzhsky from the southern regions of Russia a few days ago. “Since an agreement was reached to open a railway corridor to Tashkent from Volzhsky, migrant workers with family members began to come to the city en masse,” said Mufti Abdulla Khadzhi. “However, the infrastructure was not ready for such a massive influx of people, as a result of which an extremely difficult situation has arisen today. The arrivals found themselves face to face with the natural elements of the autumn weather. Passengers of future trains to Tashkent, for example, spent the night in the station square in the cold. "
The Volzhsky administration, on whose territory the citizens of Uzbekistan began to accumulate, turned for support to the Central Spiritual Administration of Muslims of the Volgograd Region, which has an Islamic spiritual center under construction in the Volzhsky.
On the territory of the Islamic center, representatives of the muftiate organized accommodation of people, food, and psychological assistance. “At the same time, people continue to stay, ten people arrived at night, and the same number tonight. Tomorrow and the day after tomorrow there will be even more,”says Mufti Abdullah Haji. - The work is carried out jointly with the administration of the city of Volzhsky, the structures of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the Ministry of Internal Affairs are involved, coordination with citizens of a foreign state is fully ensured.
