Thus the official representative of Department major General Igor Konashenkov said that the Russian side has repeatedly appealed to the representatives of USA, UK, France, Germany, other countries and international organizations to provide any location information to the terrorists-controlled areas of Syria points of medical care (the”hospital)” or “schools”.

“The answer is always the same — this information no one. All that is known, the message “White helmets” or the local anonymous “journalists” (“activists”)”, — he said.

Konashenkov also drew attention to the official report of the British government “non-humanitarian aid the UK in Syria in 2012-2015”, which States that “White helmets” received from the British government of 15 million pounds. But another 5.3 million pounds received some “media”.

Three of the five hospitals included in the list are in the province of Aleppo. Meanwhile, the Ministry of defence of the Russian Federation on Wednesday recalled that during the 29 days of aviation of Russian air force did not strike at Aleppo.

Russia has repeatedly stated that the choice of targets of the air strikes in Syria carefully verifies incoming intelligence information and only after that decides about the air attack. The previously unheard of accusations that Russia has allegedly strikes on civilian targets in Syria, also never found any evidence.

One of the key issues affecting settlement in Syria, is the demarcation of the so-called moderate opposition and terrorist groups. While Washington has not yet managed to fulfill its obligations in this area.
