As reported by Censor.NET citing Russian news outlets, the St. George ribbon campaign was launched at Damascus State University in the Syrian capital.
"The students of the Russian language department in less than half an hour distributed more than 1,500 ribbons outside the medical school together with leaflets in Arabic, which briefly explained the importance of the symbol for the history of Russia and its people," the propagandist outlet reported.
"The symbol of victory means a lot for us, and we know it and honor it. Like you have the symbol of victory over fascism, we want to have our own symbol and a holiday of victory over terrorism... We will win with the Russian support," Head of the Damascus University's Russian Language Department Mamdouh Abu Al-Luway said.
St. George ribbon campaign is planned to be held outside the Syrian capital, in the cities of Aleppo and Latakia in the coming days, the Russian media reported.
