The number of Russian volunteers willing to go to Iraq has already exceeded 7,000 people. This information was given by Iraqi Ambassador to Russia Abbas Khalaf at a press conference held on Friday in Moscow.

Letters to the effect come from Russia's different regions, not only Muslim ones, he pointed out. "There are several thousand people ready to defend Iraq in Daghestan alone," the Ambassador pointed out. However, now there is no need for it, he said.
