Russia will continue to support Damascus in the fight against terrorism, and the operation to liberate Aleppo is not an exception, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister and the President’s Special Representative for the Middle East and Africa, Mikhail Bogdanov, said. The Deputy Minister stressed that the main goal of Russian actions in Syria is the fight against international terrorism.
“We are talking not about the area, but about goals,” Bogdanov said, answering a question about the support of the Syrian forces in the eastern districts of Aleppo. “The goal is to fight against terrorism. We certainly will support [them] in the fight against terrorists.”
The Russian President’s Special Representative for the Middle East also noted the need for increased humanitarian aid to Aleppo. “The delivery of aid is ongoing all the time, it is just necessary to strengthen this support.”
After failure of the attempt to establish a ceasefire in Syrian city of Aleppo, various parts of which are occupied by the government forces, as well as by the ‘moderate’ opposition and terrorist groups, fights broke out with renewed intensity. Under these conditions, representatives of the UN insist on ensuring unimpeded access to the city for humanitarian cargos.
