Russian Defense Ministry: Aleppo eastern neighborhoods haven’t received any UN aid yet

Moscow, SANA_ The Russian Defense Ministry stressed that the areas in Aleppo eastern neighborhoods, which were regained by the Syrian Arab Army, haven’t received any UN aid yet.

“After the Syrian Army liberated more than 40% of the eastern districts of the city with a population of about 90,000, proposals on humanitarian aid delivery stopped coming. Unfortunately, local residents have not been receiving any UN aid,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Friday.

Konashenkov voiced hope that UN humanitarian adviser Jan Egeland would “instead of unsubstantiated allegations finally embark on real work of providing humanitarian aid to the residents of eastern Aleppo.”

” We don’t know what Egeland meant when he said that 27,000 to 30,000 people were receiving aid,” Konashenkov added.

He pointed out that the Russian Coordination Center’s officers had been delivering tons of food products, medicine and other essential supplies to Aleppo on a daily basis.
