"Vladimir Putin addressed via videoconference all present at a concert in Palmyra by the Mariinsky State Academic Symphony Orchestra under the direction of National Artist of Russia Valery Gergiev. The concert, titled Prayer for Palmyra – Music Brings the Ancient Walls to Life, took place at the ancient town’s world famous amphitheatre."

Palmyra had previously been under Islamic State control for several months, until the Syrian Government reclaimed the city on 27 March with Russian support. IS had used Palmyra's historic Roman amphitheater to stage executions and propaganda videos.
