MOSCOW, February 4. /TASS/. It is unacceptable to use humanitarian aid to Syria as an instrument for strengthening one’s positions, Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokesperson Maria Zakharova told a briefing on Thursday.

"Russia has made a lot in providing humanitarian aid to Syria," Zakharova said. "We deliver aid directly, including via Red Crescent Movement and via UN’s humanitarian organizations," she added. "Russia is monitoring the distribution of humanitarian aid, sending primarily goods in order to rule out any misuse," the spokesperson noted.

"We stand against politicking humanitarian issues," Zakharova said. It is unacceptable to use humanitarian issues as an instrument for strengthening positions of these or those sides in Syria’s internal conflict, she added. "It is unacceptable to allow terrorists to use the aid in their own interests," the diplomat concluded.

More than 50 tons of humanitarian aid from Russia and Syria have been delivered to residents of blocked Syrian regions since January 15, mostly food and medicine.
