The Daily Mail cited Theresa May’s spokeswoman as saying earlier this week that Moscow was allegedly stopping aid supplies to Aleppo because it would not agree to a ceasefire to allow its safe passage.
"All this time, residents of eastern neighborhoods [in Aleppo] have been receiving daily humanitarian aid, medicine and warm clothing from the Russian Center for reconciliation and the Syrian government. The United Kingdom, in the course of all the years of civil war in Syria has not allocated a single gram of flour, a single pill or blanket to help civilians," Konashenkov stressed on Saturday.
The defense ministry spokesman said that all conditions exist for the United Kingdom to provide humanitarian aid supplies to Aleppo.
"It seems like amid russophobia the British government has lost an objective perspective on what is happening in Syria, including in Aleppo," Konashenkov said, emphasizing that "if there is no British humanitarian aid for Aleppo, stop getting in the way of others’ help."
Over the recent months, Aleppo has turned into a major battleground in Syria, where government forces are fighting against jihadists and numerous opposition groups. Eastern Aleppo is currently encircled by government troops, and the fighting has affected thousands of civilians still trapped in the city. Previous internationally mediated ceasefires have collapsed.
