Russia says it is fed up with calls from the United States to halt the fighting in Aleppo, where government forces are on the verge of driving rebels from their last remaining enclave in the northern city.
Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told journalists Tuesday that "we are tired of hearing this whining from our American colleagues in the
current administration that we need to immediately halt military action."
Lavrov said that while urging Russia to halt military action, the US did nothing to separate moderate rebels from "terrorists" in Aleppo. He also criticized Western governments for what he said were "untrue" accusations that Russia was blocking aid convoys to Syria.
