The 48-hour truce brokered by Russia and the United States late last week entered into force at sundown Monday, subject to another extension if the parties adhere to it.

"Also for the first time an open online real-time broadcast of the situation in the eastern districts of Aleppo filmed by a UAV has been arranged," Konashenkov added.

The ministry spokesman noted that the number of locations to provide online monitoring of the situation in Syria was planned to be increased in the future.
