2 Russian medics were killed in the 'planned' attack.

Moscow has expressed its disappointment over the muted response to an attack on the Russian Defence Ministry's mobile hospital in Aleppo which claimed the lives of two medics. Vladimir Putin's spokesperson said they were upset by the "more than modest" reaction by the international community to the tragedy which took place on 5 December in the Syrian city.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Major-General Igor Konashenkov have also claimed that the artillery attack was backed by "foreign patrons". "We are confident that this attack was planned," Lavrov said in a statement on 6 December. "It was planned by those who are trying to retain their positions in Aleppo under the guise of their foreign patrons."
