    Over the recent months, Aleppo became a major battleground in Syria between government forces and militants. On Tuesday, the Russian reconciliation center said that the Syrian government army controlled over 98 percent of the territory of Aleppo, with militants present in a 2.5 square kilometer area.

    The glorious liberation of Aleppo by the Syrian Arab Army has been mired by reports by the mainstream media suggesting that the army was committing “atrocities” against the liberated people of Aleppo.

    Sputnik columnist Andrew Korybko pointed out that instead of being delighted that the terrorists have been expelled and that the largest hostage crisis in history is now over, they've gone into overdrive alleging that the SAA is committing all sorts of "atrocities" against the city's inhabitants, using nothing more than the 140 characters of Tweet or a brief YouTube monologue as "evidence" that this is occurring.

    One video which shows what Aleppo really looks like right now is provided below.

    It is no doubt blood chilling footage of an empty district of Aleppo. However, unlike the media reports, there are no women or children running for their lives in the street.

    The footage is a panoramic tour of one of Aleppo streets. It shows residential buildings partially destroyed. The narrator of the video explains that most of the damage were done by artillery weapons and tanks.

    The empty street stretches out for at least a few kilometers. There is no one in sight and only occasional explosions are heard from afar in the east of Aleppo.

    It was earlier reported that there was a large-scale humanitarian operation ongoing which is aimed at helping the tens of thousands of refugees escape terrorist rule in east Aleppo.

    However, as the columnist pointed out, the mainstream media continues to show blatant double standard and produces fake narratives.
