Russia in the Security Council: Aid to Syria across the border remains with the terrorists

Russia's permanent representative to the United Nations, Vasily Nebenzia, announced that Russia does not see a basis for preserving the mechanism for transporting humanitarian aid to Syria across the border, explaining that if we have to make a decision about extending the mechanism for transporting aid across the border tomorrow, then I think we will not find foundations to maintain it. It is important that all those interested in extending the mechanism's work realize that time is short and we have to work a lot.

According to Russia Today, Russia's permanent representative to the United Nations added during the Security Council meeting: "We will not be able to be satisfied with partial measures," stressing the importance of transporting humanitarian aid to Idlib through the territories controlled by the Syrian government, not just across the borders.

Russia's permanent representative to the United Nations pointed out that the aid that is transported across the borders remains with the terrorists who benefit from it, explaining that the mechanism of transporting aid across the borders has caused an unequal distribution of aid, which resulted in a high percentage of the population suffering from hunger in northwestern Syria. Stressing that Russia has questions about how to distribute the vaccines allocated by the United Nations.
