Churkin: UN failed to carry adequate evacuations in Aleppo
The United Nations did not adequately execute evacuations of ill and injured people from Syria’s eastern Aleppo during the humanitarian pause there, the Russian Envoy to UN Vitaly Churkin said during the UN Security Council meeting.
According to Churkin, the UN staff "didn’t exercise the necessary pressure over the sponsors of illegal military groups in order to make possible cooperation between the armed groups and humanitarian workers."
"The United Nations didn’t work through properly the operation of medical evacuations of the sick and wounded. The work with opposition groups present in city and the local council was left to its own," Sputnik cited him a saying.
