The Kremlin stated that the ceasefire introduced by Russian military in Aleppo will continue as long as members of the Syrian opposition who are stationed in the city do not undertake aggressive actions, the Press Secretary for the President of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Peskov said, as reported by Interfax.
“The humanitarian pause has a clearly defined time frame, but the policy of temporarily halting the operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces continues. This decision was made with regard to the position taken by the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, who said the ceasefire will hold as long as militants refrain from carrying out attacks.” Peskov stated.
“If militants aren’t undertaking active offensive actions, then the President considers it appropriate to continue the cease fire and Russian Aerospace Forces will not carry out airstrikes on eastern Aleppo,” Peskov explained. The United States has reported that Syrians have not received any benefit from the humanitarian pause announced by Russia in Aleppo.
