(Interfax) Eight special corridors are currently open in the Syrian city of Aleppo where the Russian military, supported by the Syrian authorities, are conducting a humanitarian operation, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said.

“Each day water, food and essentials are delivered to local residents through seven special corridors,” he told reporters on Monday.

“The eighth one is open near Castello Road for armed militants to leave the city,” Antonov said.

The Russian military have been conducting the humanitarian operation in Aleppo for a month now, he said.

“The question of providing humanitarian aid to all Aleppo residents, despite the ongoing talks between all parties concerned, has not lost its relevance,” Antonov said.

Obama wants Russia to open the Castello Road for Aid Convoys from Turkey, LOL.
Turkish Aid convoys also carry explosives in bags marked as ‘Sugar’.

I read this as meaning that the Russian army has a non-small number of infantry troops on the ground in Aleppo city, and their mission is to maintain security in the designated “humanitarian corridors”.
