Thursday, 21 June 2018 10:52

The Russian Centre for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides continues working on peaceful settlement of the conflict and providing comprehensive assistance to Syrian citizens.

Despite the ceasefire regime being established throughout the country, illegal armed formations breach ceasefire regime in the provinces of Latakia.

Measures are being taken to improve humanitarian situation in the capital area and its suburbs.

The Russian Centre for Reconciliation monitored situation in Misraba, the province of Damascus, to define scope of reconstruction work for social infrastructure – schools, hospitals, bakeries, water and electricity facilities.

Local authorities jointly with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent organize delivery of food and drinking water, providing medical assistance and evacuation of very seriously ill patients in hospitals of Damascus.

Engineering units of the Syrian Army trained by Russian specialists successfully perform tasks. In Douma and al-Nasriyah, the Syrian engineers have checked 23 buildings to defuse five mines, four projectiles and 10 improvised explosive devices.

Measures are being taken by Syrian government jointly with the Russian side to stabilize post-conflict situation in the provinces of Hama and Homs.

Representatives of the Centre for Reconciliation held a working meeting with the leadership of the Homs administration to clarify the topical issues on reconstruction of infrastructure.

Recovering of social infrastructure and establishment of peaceful life enables people to return back to their homes.

Over the past day, 215 people have returned to Homs province, and 118 people – to the Eastern Ghouta. Due to improving humanitarian situation, 69,715 people have returned home in the Eastern Ghouta from refugee and IDP camps.

The Russian Centre for Reconciliation continues monitoring situation in the Southern de-escalation zone. Environment in the area has been stable over the past 24 hours. There have been no clashes between illegal armed formations and government troops, as well as mass outflow from the settlements. At the same time, despite of all measures taken by the Russian Centre for Reconciliation, the humanitarian situation in the Southern de-escalation zone remains complicated. The leaders of illegal armed groups, who control distribution of the bare necessities in the villages of southwestern Syria, do not provide the population with enough food and medical supplies.

The Russian Centre for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides is focused on improving humanitarian situation, providing medical assistance to the people in need.

The Russian Centre carried out humanitarian action in Bayt-Sahm, the province of Damascus to deliver 30 tons of construction material for administration.

Russian military medics have provided medical assistance to more than 13 people, including five children.
