The US decision “is a cause of deep disappointment,” reads the statement of the Russian foreign Ministry.
Russian diplomats said that Washington supported Moscow’s willingness to declare in the region of Aleppo, a new 72-hour “humanitarian pause” and opposed the withdrawal of the militants and the government forces of the road “Costello” for the delivery of humanitarian aid to the region.
In addition, the Russian foreign Ministry stressed that the US never exerted real pressure on Jabhat al-Nusra” (banned in Russia as a terrorist organization), which used the ceasefire only to regroup and continue their “bloody attacks”.
Moscow has a “growing impression” that the desire to overthrow Assad, Washington is ready “to conclude a deal with the devil”, that is to go into an Alliance with “notorious terrorists, dreaming to reverse history,” says Russian diplomats.
