SOCHI, February 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said he lauded a ceasefire in Homs that would allow children and women to leave the area of military actions.
“The ceasefire will make it possible to resolve humanitarian issues and will be a good tradition in the future,” Putin said at a reception in honor of high-ranking guests of the Olympic Games.
“It’s very pleasant that just today a decision has been taken to terminate military actions for 72 hours and open humanitarian corridors in order to evacuate injured people, peaceful civilians, children and women,” the Russian president said.
“I want to thank the Olympic Committee and the United Nations Organization that helped the warring parties to take such decision. I hope that this will be a good tradition,” he said, adding “I’m sure that this will facilitate the resolution of all humanitarian issues.”
