Moscow: Preparations are underway for the opening of the Cathedral mosque in Moscow. “I think the top officials of Muslim countries will undoubtedly attend. The leaders of the countries that are friendly to us and whose attitude to Russia remained unchanged both at peaceful times and in crises will definitely be invited,” says Damir Gizatullin, first deputy chairman of the Muslim Board of Russia’s European Part. “World-famous religious figures, and not only Muslims, but also our brothers Orthodox Christians, Jews and Buddhists, will also be invited”, he added. The opening ceremony is scheduled for September 23. Built in 1904, the historical Moscow Cathedral Mosque, located on Olimpiysky Avenue, was demolished in 2011.
