Lattakia, SANA – A Russian aircraft carrying 21tons of humanitarian and relief aid arrived Thursday in Bassel al-Assad airport in Lattakia province.
Representative of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry Alexander Sergey said that the planeload of humanitarian aid is offered by the people and government of Russia to the Syrian people.
Russian Consul in Damascus Karen Vasilyan was there when the aid was received.
Russia is one of the first countries that have stood by the side of the Syrian People since the outset of the internationally-schemed terrorism crisis in their country in 2011, and it has been since then sending food and medical supplies in aid to Damascus.
The latest Russian aid shipment was sent on the 18th of last December, and was carrying 25 tons of humanitarian aid that included infants’ food, canned food, sugar and other supplies.
