    The Russian military brought 4.5 tons of humanitarian aid and provided urgent medical help to Syrians in the Damascus and Aleppo provinces, the Defense Ministry said late Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — "Ruheiba (Damascus province) and Abtin (Aleppo province) have received 4.5 tons of humanitarian cargoes," the Russian center for reconciliation said in a bulletin.

    Aid workers from the Hmeymim-based center in the western Latakia region offered medical assistance to 22 civilians, the ministry said, adding more humanitarian convoys for people in the Damascus province were being loaded.

    Russia has been mediating a ceasefire in parts of Syria since February. More than 50 armed groups have so far signed up to the truce with the government. The lull in fighting has enabled Russia to deliver tonnes of aid cargo, mostly food, to residents in the war-torn country.
