MOSCOW (AFP) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov (pictured) on Monday slammed a proposed UN resolution demanding a temporary ceasefire in Aleppo as a “provocative step.”

“Taking into account all aspects and the current development of the situation, the draft resolution coming against the backdrop of the Russian-American initiative is for the most part a provocative step that undermines Russian-American efforts,” Lavrov told a press conference.
