    The Syrian government is ready to cooperate with the United Nations and other humanitarian organizations to deliver humanitarian aid to the blocked districts of east Aleppo but militants are hampering the efforts, Russian ambassador to Syria Alexander Kinshchak told Sputnik on Friday.

    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) He said that the United Nations has all necessities in west Aleppo to help suffering civilians from the other part of the city: food, medicines and sanitary fitments.

    "All those [necessities] could have been delivered to the territory controlled by militants. The Syrian government is ready for that. The militants inside [the besieged area] deny to accept humanitarian aid. I think their logic is the following: the worse, the better. The worse are the populations’ conditions; the louder may be their cries about the tragedy… A number of western and regional media are going that now," Kinshchak said.

    He added that the militants were using civilians in east Aleppo as human shields.
