Russian rescuers have begun to clear the rubble in the port of the Lebanese capital, TASS reports. The employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation have already found the bodies of several victims.

Dozens of people come to the checkpoint at the entrance to the destroyed seaport of Beirut every day. The relatives of those who went missing after the explosion hope that their relatives will be found under the rubble.

The Russian rescuers have been allocated a section adjacent to the elevator, which is half destroyed. The rescuers use dogs to help them find victims under the rubble.

The exact number of people who have gone missing is still not known. Doctor Imad Ndjheim expressed hope that the work of the Russian rescuers would be successful. He recalled that they had vast experience in conducting search and rescue operations.

On the first day of work, Russian doctors treated 13 patients in a specially deployed mobile hospital. In addition to providing first aid to victims, doctors tested for coronavirus.

Volunteers from the Youth Wing of the Coordinating Council of Organizations of Russian Compatriots are also helping on the site. Young people not only provide first aid to those in need, but also act as translators. The guys call it a unique opportunity to learn from world-class specialists and help in the restoration of the city.

As the Russkiy Mir reported, residents of Papua New Guinea addressed the head of the Russian Orthodox Church with a collective petition to establish an Orthodox mission in their country. This proposal was put forward after Kirill Shrakbul, a priest and head of the ROC mission in Taiwan, had visited Papua New Guinea.
On September 1, millions of children in Russia went to school. And millions of their peers in Ukraine also went to schools. Everything seems to be the same: flowers, bows, well-dressed children, excited parents... And yet there is a difference and a very significant one: children in Russia go to schools to study in their native language. However, starting with this academic year, hundreds of thousands of Russian-speaking children no longer have this opportunity in Ukraine.
