MOSCOW, August 16 (Itar-Tass) - The people of Syria are experiencing hardships due to sanctions taken against their country by the United States and other nations, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich told the media on Friday.
“The humanitarian aspect of the Syrian crisis deserves special attention,” Lukashevich said. “Syrian civilians are suffering from an acute internal armed standoff, they are vulnerable to systematic attacks by terrorists and are experiencing hardships as a result of unilateral sanctions taken against Syria by the United States, the European Union and some other countries.”
“The number of refugees, in the first place, in the neighbouring countries, has exceeded 1.7 million. Several million inside Syria have found themselves in the precarious position of internally displaced persons,” he added.
