DISINFO: No one has yet seen the humanitarian aid EU is providing Syria

SUMMARY

No one has yet seen the humanitarian aid the European Union is providing in Syria.

RESPONSE

The EU is the leading donor in the international response to the Syrian crisis, with over €8.9 billion from the EU and Member States collectively allocated in humanitarian, stabilisation and development assistance since the start of the conflict . Furthermore, Russia has twice vetoed United Nations Security Council resolutions, in October and December, that demanded an immediate end to air strikes and military flights over Syria's Aleppo city and called for a truce and humanitarian aid access throughout Syria
