Moscow needs more mosques - Alekseyeva
Russia's human rights movement veteran and Moscow Helsinki Group Chairman Lyudmila Alekseyeva said Moscow needs more mosques.
"There are many Muslims and very few mosques in Moscow. There is not enough room, especially on big holidays," Alekseyeva told Interfax on Monday.
Izvestia reported on Monday that the Moscow authorities are ready to provide six sites for the construction of mosques in different administrative districts of Moscow (specifically, in Southern Butovo, Lyublino, and near the metro station Shosse Entuziastov).
