The Minister of defence of Russia Sergey Shoigu said that from 10 o’clock in the morning, Russian aircraft had ceased to strike on the outskirts of Aleppo. In addition, the Syrian army will withdraw to a sufficient distance from the town to the opponents of President Bashar al-Assad could leave the besieged city for two special corridors. In this regard, Shoigu appealed to the leaders of countries able to influence the militants to convince the rebels to leave immediately Aleppo. The Minister hopes that his peace initiative will contribute to the negotiations of the military experts in Geneva, who on October 19 will begin the isolation of the opposition of terrorist organizations.
