GENEVA (Sputnik) — Russia's co-chairs in the ISSG's task forces on humanitarian access and ceasefire in Syria took part in a humanitarian aid delivery to Syria's Homs, according to the source.

"The co-chairs from Russia in the International Syria Support Group, the representatives of the Foreign Ministry — the head of the political referendary of the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation at the UN Geneva Office Maria Khodynskaya-Golenishcheva, and the Russian Defense Ministry — Col. Alexander Zorin, took part in such actions for the first time. This made it possible to assess the real needs of the population in a number of districts for more effective work within the ISSG framework. Contrary to what the Western press reported, humanitarian needs are also high in areas controlled by the Syrian government. This practice will be continued on a regular basis," the source said.
