MOSCOW, November 28. /TASS/. Moscow supports declaring humanitarian pauses in Aleppo so that humanitarian organizations may assist Russia in delivering aid to the city’s residents, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told reporters.
"I will not say now whether the issue of humanitarian pauses will be resolved soon to the satisfaction of the Red Cross and others or not. However, we want this and hope that from this point of view, the situation will also change for the better soon," Ryabkov said.
"As of now, main efforts in the sphere of alleviating the humanitarian situation for residents of Aleppo and neighboring regions are made precisely by the Russian air group," he said. "The Russian side for the last several weeks, practically alone, without support, has been alleviating the situation for residents of this city by delivering appropriate humanitarian aid," the deputy foreign minister noted.
The diplomat said that humanitarian organizations and structures "have so far demonstrated extreme caution and precise adherence to their own criteria or carrying out such operations. "This is their right, we respect this approach. However, it remains as it is — international organizations have not yet carried out the necessary amount of work," he concluded.
