MOSCOW, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Ministry pledged on Friday that Moscow would continue providing humanitarian aid to the Syrian population.
The statement also said aid would be provided to both internally displaced persons and Syrian refugees in neighboring countries.
On January 23, a Russian Emergencies Ministry jet delivered to the Lebanese capital Beirut more than 33 metric tons of urgent humanitarian supplies, including portable electric power plants, tents, blankets, tableware and oil radiators, for Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
“Such assistance is in particular demand in conditions of a cold winter that has come to the region,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
According to UN statistics, the Syrian civil war has claimed more than 100,000 lives and displaced millions of people since its start in 2011.
