MOSCOW, December 14. /TASS/. The situation in Syria’s Aleppo continues to be strained, Russian Presidential Spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters on Wednesday.
"It (the situation) continues to be tense. There are positive dynamics regarding Syrian troops advancing and the completion of the operation to liberate Aleppo from terrorists," the Kremlin spokesman said. Peskov added that questions on the details of the Aleppo operation should be addressed to the Russian Defense Ministry.
Responding to the UN’s accusations against Russia and Syria over alleged atrocities, Peskov stressed that "it would be enough to have a look at the footage taken by TV reporters who are at the scene, which shows that civilians welcome the liberation of the eastern part of the city from terrorists rather emotionally and enthusiastically." He added though that it would be "quite improper not to point out the atrocities committed by the terrorists."
