    Russia will continue providing the people of Syria with humanitarian assistance, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia, which is actively promoting a peaceful solution to the Syrian conflict, has been carrying out regular humanitarian aid deliveries to various parts of Syria amid internal hostilities.

    "We will continue to provide humanitarian assistance to the Syrian people…in addition to the assistance provided by our non-governmental organizations," Lavrov said in an interview with the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society.

    "The Russian government has already sent dozens of flights with humanitarian aid: food, medicine, various equipment needed by schools and hospitals," he added.

    He said that the construction of a school in Syria was currently on the agenda.

    "I hope it will become one of the most popular education establishments in this country," Lavrov said.

    Since the beginning of 2016, 978,000 people living in hard-to-reach areas in Syria have received humanitarian assistance, according to the UN data.
