    The Russian Defense Ministry urged the United Nations to get down to work and provide real humanitarian aid to the residents of Aleppo instead of merely talking about it.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The United Nations has not provided humanitarian assistance to the liberated parts of eastern Aleppo, Syria, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Friday.

    "Unfortunately, there is no UN humanitarian relief in the liberated areas of eastern Aleppo," Konashenkov said.

    He said that the ministry was unaware of some 30,000 residents who fled eastern Aleppo receiving humanitarian assistance, as estimated by UN special envoy for Syria Jan Egeland on Thursday.

    Konashenkov voiced hope that Egeland would "instead of unsubstantiated allegations finally embark on real work of providing humanitarian aid to the residents of eastern Aleppo."

    The United Nations has stopped its proposals of humanitarian aid deliveries after Syrian government forces liberated 40 percent of eastern Aleppo neighborhoods, the Russian Defense Ministry said Friday.

    "After the liberation by government troops of more than 40 percent of the city's eastern districts, home to about 90,000 inhabitants, all proposals for the delivery of humanitarian aid to Aleppo stopped," Konashenkov said.

      The western governments are so sinister and wicked that they would try to stay tens of thousands just so they could blame it on Russia and Assad. It's unthinkable that NATO would do such a thing, but NATO is evil.

      Doesn´t these corrupted bought&paid for *ssholes have any shame at all?
      That organisation is in desperate need of reform and people like Mistura, playing with human lives for geo-political gains, brought to justice.

      But ok. send the US-stooge in to his beloved cutthroats and child be-headers if that´s what it takes. Best case scenario is him making a complete fool of himself and next best his rats cutting his head for the fun of it.

      UN is proving to be a USA puppet just as EU and all because USA and their vassals threatened that they will stop financing not just humanitarian aids altogether but financing UN as such. In UN as in EU are employed a bunch of bureaucrats who are detached from reality and all they do is to struggle for their feeding hand to feed them further no matter what consequences will be afterwards. 

      USA used UN Humanitarian aid agency as their propaganda tool and for as long as E Aleppo was under terrorist control they were used as proof to blacken and blame Russia for humanitarian crisis in Aleppo and to prove the point how bad are murderous Russians are. UN HA organisation on USA order organised aid to be sent to E Aleppo and terrorist would seize goods and stocked their warehouses with it and had good time enjoying abundance of goods.

      However population was starving further and were calling for help but to no avail. USA through their proxy information sources of more than dubious reputation, origin and performance, successfully as far as west is concern launched anti Russian propaganda, even calling for additional sanctions only to give some kind of false credibility to their false and ill meant accusations. Western corrupt criminal vassals and our Chancellor Merkel in particular were all to happy to jump on that bandwagon of false accusations all in hope to create unbearable pressure on Russian government and to use a part of Russian corrupt media (which is in hands of foreign owners) to inseminate doubt and public resentment over the Russian policy maker's decisions.

      However that is not that simple as Russian population is generally way more intelligent and well educated what is less and less case with our Western countries where governments are doing all they can to reduce level of education on basic minimum thus prevent population to start analytically thinking and properly understanding of events and their consequences. That is why our TV channels are all full of worthless soap operas, endless TV serials full of shit, stupid and utterly brainless talk shows, reality shows and so on.

      All that is with simple purpose to make strong divide between political elite and stupid and brainless masses. In such environment we are witnessing such inhumane bargaining between money receivers and money givers. We are witnessing abuse of basic human principles for a political benefits of political elite.

      Unfortunately, their secret operation called “Brainwashing” started long time ago only that by arrival of Negro Muslim behind the helm speed up this process nearly to the total escalation. However time is running out for him and his substitute is much less willing to follow his path, well at least at the beginning, which will be good enough for Russia to achieve few goals such as liberation of Syria, destruction of ISIL, replacing Putin and prosecute all oligarchs and total confiscation of their assets without exception.

      Hopefully this current Russian achievements and political changes in USA and EU will cause irreversible end of EU and NATO.

      Of course they stopped. They were supplying to terrorists.
      Now the terrorists are fleeing in all directions . No more terrorists to supply to.
      Shame on UN.
      UN is now a defunct organ. The world spits on UN officials starting with spineless Ban ki moon the puppet.

      U.N is in U.S. And does what U.S ORDERS.
      IF it was West proxies, the trucks be there at super speeds.

      And Russia is HORRIBLE defending corridors.

      IF U,N wanted it just give it to Russia to give it out. So send planes to grab all it can anywhere on earth.

      Ban Ki Goon has a track record - the FIRST fool to shout after houla,ghouta and relief convoy false flags? A lot of of these devils appointed to the top have strings they can be pulled with, the fool could be a kiddie pornster or something like that, every time he is needed by the devils he is first in with a shout !!

      I say it before. Dont trust Egeland. He is a spy for US and western goverment. He is only following order from Washington. People like him should never had this position. They are not there to help people. Helping terrorist is his job.

      copius, If EU ends. Each EC country will be even more at the mercy of the empire. After Brexit I hope for a more "continental" policy. Which could be more balanced and possibly closer to Russia.
    • sterndaler
      UN organisations are staffed at high ranks with people that instrumentalize and thus corrupt the cause in favour of their home countries' and in-groups political agenda. Jan Egeland is the perfect example of this. He doesn't only stand for Norwegian Red Cross... But also worked for a Soros' sponsored propaganda NGO.

      @ slimyfox, If EU ends? Each EC country will be even more at the mercy of the Empire. After Brexit I hope for a more "continental" EC policy. Which could be more balanced and possibly closer to Russia - which shares a continental strategic view.

      Waiting on or relying on the UN is futile -- they're bedded with the globalist cabal.
      Russia and Syria are on their own-- Humanitarian aid will have to continue coming from mainly Russia-- perhaps also Iran and what about China-- surely China will have no problem assisting? What about Cuban medico's? Can South Africa and India not also provide humanitarian aid? Russia should perhaps not hesitate to appeal to BRICS countries to assist Syria and ease the terrible plight of the people there. This is not political!!-- For the Good Lord's sake-- we're talking about human beings in desperate need of relief and some form of return to a normal life-- people who for the last six years endured hell itself at the hands of the evil US sponsored terrorist evil in Syria.

      Aid is being provided by Russia and not the US or UN. Looks like they are trying to cause starvation and famine to these people because the Syrian Government and Russsia are on the Right Side and winning the War .

      What are they waiting for (UN) ? The Go Ahead by the US or perhaps even Nato itself.
