MOSCOW, July 28. /TASS/. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov rejected media reports on Thursday that the Russian armed forces were allegedly preparing a military operation near Aleppo in Syria under the guise of a humanitarian effort.

"This is the preparation of a humanitarian operation and there are no grounds for having any doubts about this," Peskov said.

The Russian contingent has all the necessary information for carrying out this mission, the presidential spokesman said.

"The Russian military contingent is providing effective and real humanitarian assistance locally," Peskov said.

"Being present on the spot, it naturally possesses fuller information for more effective and fuller provision of this aid, which the suffering population urgently needs," Peskov said.

The humanitarian operation is being carried out on instruction from the Russian president and on his initiative, the Kremlin spokesman said.

"The theme of humanitarian operations was really broadly discussed both with our American partners and Syrian partners," Peskov said.
