Russian military police arrive in Aleppo to provide aid and protect humanitarian staff

A Russian military police battalion has arrived in the newly liberated Aleppo to provide security to humanitarian aid workers and Russian sappers who are helping Syrians rebuild their lives following 5 years of Islamist rule in parts of the city.

Military police of the Russian Ministry of Defense arrived at the Hmeymim air base in Latakia earlier on Friday. The troops were immediately despatched to Aleppo where they will protect Russian sappers, medical staff and aid personnel.

“The division has marched from the Hmeymim air base to the city of Aleppo to perform duties as part of the Russian Center for Reconciliation in the Syrian Arab Republic,” the Russia Defense Ministry said.
