MUNICH, February 13. /TASS/. The United Nations should increase control measures over supplies of humanitarian aid to Syria so that radical groups cannot get it, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told TASS on Saturday.

The humanitarian aid airlifted to Syria "quite often goes into the wrong hands and is seized by radical groups," Gatilov said.

"The United Nations should consider how to step up the effectiveness of monitoring control on the ground," he said.

Gatilov has said that UN special agencies in charge of monitoring the deliveries of humanitarian aid to Syria failed to cope with the situation.

"They are monitoring, doing their best but are unable to cope," he said.

Earlier in the day, Britain’s Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said humanitarian aid would start to be delivered to Syria within the next 24-48 hours.
