Ramadan problem

Ramadan, the ninth month in the Islamic calendar moves backwards by some 11 days through the year in the internationally recognised Gregorian calendar so by 2017 the 30 days of Ramadan, a month of sunrise to sunset fasting, will be from May 27 to June 25. This will create minor problems for any Muslims living in the far north, those living in Murmansk, for example, unable to eat for the entire period of Ramadan because the sun never sets. No doubt god will provide some miracle for any Muslims so affected.
