Russian military in Syria create humanitarian corridors to help out those who need it most, something that cannot be said of the American troops who occupied a part of the country, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN Vassily Nebenzya said at a meeting of the UN Security Council after an American diplomat accused Moscow and Damascus of obstructing humanitarian access to the Rukban camp.
US Charge d'Affaires to the UN Richard Mills told the Security Council meeting on Syria earlier that Russia and the Syrian government allegedly prevents UN convoys from accessing the refugee camp. The US diplomat called on Moscow and Damascus to let humanitarian shipments in and stop "politicizing and weaponizing aid."
"Thanks to the Russian military, a corridor to deliver humanitarian aid to several districts in Hasakah was unblocked. Meanwhile, what have the American occupying forces, who advocate humanism, done to improve the humanitarian situation in Syria?" asked Nebenzya who spoke after Mills, TASS reports.
Russia has repeatedly pointed out that the Rukban camp controlled by US military units is used as a foothold for terrorists and extremists.
