BRUSSELS, December 8. /TASS/. NATO Secretary General's refusal to comment on the shelling of the Russian airborne hospital in Aleppo, which claimed the lives of two Russian physicians and left one more medic severely wounded, came across as a glaring instance of double standards, Russian Ambassador to NATO Alexander Grushko told Russian reporters on Wednesday.
"That's a glaring instance of double standards, a situation when NATO people didn't find a single word to express condolences and sympathy or to condemn an attack on our hospital that brought about human victims among our physicians and Syrians," he said.
At a news conference earlier on the same day, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg practically evaded an answer to a question from TASS on the militants' strike at the Russian hospital, saying the situation in Aleppo was highly complicated and marked by a humanitarian disaster.
He also said thousands of people, including humanitarian workers had died there, allegedly because the Syrian regime supported by Russia had launched an offensive.
On December 5, the medical tent camp of the Russian Defense Ministry's airborne hospital underwent artillery shelling when the medics were examining and treating local residents. A direct hit of a mine at the hospital's admissions section killed two Russian medics, Nadezhda Durachenko and Galina Mikhailova.
The chief pediatrician of the Russian Defense Ministry's medical services, Vadim Arsentyev, sustained a severe wound.
