MOSCOW, November 30. /TASS/. The United Nations and other international organizations choose not to offer humanitarian aid to Aleppo residents although there are no obstacles preventing aid deliveries, Head of the Main Operations Department at Russia’s General Staff Lieutenant-General Sergei Rudskoi said on Wednesday.
According to him, the Syrian army has cleared the Castello road "so there are no more obstacles preventing the delivery of humanitarian aid to Aleppo."
"The Russian Center for Reconciliation did not receive a single proposal on the humanitarian aid deliveries either from the UN or from any other international organization as if civilians no longer need food and medicine after militants have been driven out," Rudskoi said.
He noted that Russia’s Defense Ministry expected international organizations to step up their work in order to provide assistance to Aleppo residents. The general also said that the humanitarian situation in the city districts cleared of militants was very difficult, people were without water and electricity. "The Syrian engineering units have launched a demining operation as well as the restoration of vital civil facilities, water supply has already been restored in some areas. Officers of the Russian Reconciliation Center have organized the work to restore vital facilities so that civilians could return to peaceful life as soon as possible," Rudskoi added.
UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said earlier that the United Nations needed security guarantees to send aid to eastern Aleppo.
