The video features an integration launched in 2016 for Syrian refugees in Moscow by Non-profit charity Civic Assistance Committee. The main purpose of the project is to help people, who fled war in their country, to integrate into Russian society. Svetlana Gannushkina, Chairperson of Civic Assistance Committee explains their motive behind the project: "First of all the main reasons why we have started this project are the following; children are not taken to a school that is why this project is focused primarily on children. But our courses will be attended by both children and adults.
Adults and children will study Russian in order to integrate to our society. Adults will study only Russian, children have to integrate to our society. That is why our primary goal is that these children can attend normal school."
