However, the document does not mention Russia, which is a key political and military ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, writes The Guardian.
The commission investigated seven armed attacks in Syria, targeting such facilities as hospitals and a school. In conclusion, she found that five of them were committed by the Syrian government and / or its allies. Nevertheless, Russia does not appear in the report as the organizer and culprit of air strikes on civilians.
It is reported that the human rights organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) announced its dissatisfaction with the results of the UN report. According to the publication, the group expressed its disappointment at the refusal to call Russia responsible for the actions of the Syrian government.
The UN also registered the coordinates of all the sites that were targeted in its conflict resolution system; this information was transferred to the disposal of Moscow and other warring parties to prevent attacks, writes The Guardian.
Last month, a UN commission on Syria presented a report accusing the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) of delivering indiscriminate attacks on human settlements in Idlib, which is a war crime.
According to the commission, the actions of the Russian military violated the civil rights of the Syrians, including children, in areas controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces.
