    According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the Russian deputy foreign minister and the Syrian ambassador to Russia discussed the situation in eastern Aleppo and the need for the effective humanitarian assistance to people.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov and Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad met in Moscow on Tuesday to discuss the situation in eastern Aleppo and the need for the effective humanitarian assistance to people, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

    “During the conversation the sides exchanged views on the development of military-political and humanitarian situation in Syria. Particular attention was paid to the situation in eastern Aleppo in the context of active counterterrorist measures of the Syrian army, with a focus on the need to provide effective humanitarian assistance to people,” the ministerial statement read.

    The situation in Aleppo has been deteriorating steadily over the recent months. Thousands of citizens are believed to be trapped in the terrorist-besieged eastern parts of Aleppo with no access to food or water. There have been several attempts to establish a ceasefire, however the bids have failed.

    Earlier this month, the first special operation to evacuate the citizens of eastern Aleppo was held. On Monday, the Russian reconciliation center said that the Syrian army had established complete control over 12 districts of eastern Aleppo, liberating some 40 percent of the region’s territory.
