Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said that Russia distributed the 'White Book on Syria' to the UN Security Council, in Moscow, on Thursday, which highlights US-led military actions which have caused civilian deaths and destruction of infrastructure.

Zakharova stated, "In reference to the photo materials from a list of military actions made by the United States and their allies in Syria, and which led to a large amount of civil casualties and destruction of civil infrastructure. These photo materials formed the basis of the White Book on Syria, which was distributed by the Russian side in UN Security Council."

Zakharova continued noting that "The US State Department on this occasion said that it is aware about the existence of the White Book, but would not comment upon it. This is very strange; the State Department pays close attention to made up materials from unknown structures like the Syrian Observatory for the Human Rights."

The spokesperson also commented upon the suspension of Russian airstrikes in Aleppo, stating that the decision to pause was made in order to let the United States to "perform their responsibilities of separating the so-called moderate opposition from the terrorists," a task which "has not been initiated," according to Zakharova.

In regards to Aleppo, Zakharova informed that "terrorists" are charging "sum of around $300 from children and the elderly to leave the city," adding that "the militants plan to use the proceeds for rearmament, new acts of terror and violence."
