MOSCOW, November 12. /TASS/. Russian Defense Ministry is ready to consider the possibility of new humanitarian pauses in Aleppo as soon as representatives of the UN humanitarian mission in Syria officially confirm their preparedness to deliver humanitarian aid to the city and evacuate injured and sick civilians, the ministry's official spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Saturday.
"The main condition for introducing another humanitarian pause in Aleppo should be the readiness of the UN humanitarian mission in Syria to organize delivery of humanitarian aid to eastern districts and evacuate injured and sick people from there," Konashenkov said.
"The experience of previous humanitarian pauses showed that assurances of UN representatives about ‘preliminary’ agreements with militants in Aleppo are just words," he added. He reminded that "all attempts of any vehicles with humanitarian aid for Aleppo to even approach humanitarian corridors always end in shellings by militants and impossibility to go through because of mines in the roads and streets."
The last humanitarian pause in Aleppo was in force for 10 hours on November 4.
