The process of obtaining and resettlement the refugees from Ukraine was discussed during  the meeting of the government committee for handling emergency situations in Adygeya. The meeting  headed by Prime Minister of Adygeya Murat Kompilov which required members of the committee to make all efforts to help the refugees.

It should be noted that during the three years of the war in Syria, only 600 Syrian Circassians managed to come back to Adygeya (Russia). The main problem that Circassians from Syria who want to return to their historic homeland have difficulties to get a visa to enter the territory of the Russian Federation.
Any person who wants to come back to Adygeya have to get an invitation from someone who lives in Russia. According to the law the person who invite must be able to finance the inviter for three months. Such invitations have been made in the past by the organization "Perth" in the city of Nalchik, Kabardino-Balkaria republic. A year ago this organization was closed by decision of the court of Nalchik.
