UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) — A longer ceasefire in the city of Aleppo is possible, but has to be agreed on multilaterally, Russia's Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said after a UN Security Council meeting on Syria.

"We have declared the 8-hour unilaterally, I supposed that longer, like 48-hours or 72-hours will require some kind of mutual arrangements", Churkin stated on Monday.

Earlier in the day, Russia’s General Staff announced that a humanitarian pause in Aleppo is scheduled from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. local time on Thursday.

The United Nations said it thinks a 48-hour pause is needed to ensure the delivery of humanitarian aid to numerous individuals in need in Aleppo.
