Russia submits own UN resolution on Aleppo

Russia has circulated a draft resolution to address the humanitarian crisis in Aleppo after warning it was prepared to veto a French-drafted text on deploying UN observers to the Syrian city, diplomats say.

The Russian proposal calls on the United Nations to make “arrangements” to “monitor the condition of civilians remaining in Aleppo” but does not mention the deployment of observers, according to the draft seen by AFP.
