Russia sends list of Syrian areas requiring urgent humanitarian aid to UN
The Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria has prepared a list of conflict-torn settlements requiring humanitarian aid and appealed to the United Nations, the spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry Igor Konashenkov said Monday, reports “Sputnik”.
"We have already delivered and handed over more than 620 tons of humanitarian aid, medicine and other essentials to the local population of the Syrian provinces of Hama, Homs, Latakia, Daraa, Deir ez-Zor, Aleppo and Damascus," ministry spokesman. Igor Konashenkov stated.
The Russian Defense Ministry is also ready to allocate vehicles for the transportation of humanitarian supplies from a Russian naval facility in the port of Tartus and the Hmeimim airbase to the areas of direct distribution of aid to the Syrians in need, Konashenkov outlined.
A US-Russia-brokered ceasefire came into force on February 27 across Syria.
It was supported by Damascus, as well as by dozens of opposition groups on the ground.
The Islamic State and the Jabhat al- Nusra Front (both outlawed in Russia) are not part of the deal.
