Documentation for claim

Period/date: 15. December 2016

Debunk claim:

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 http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_MEMO-16-222_en.htm?locale=F. 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 http://research.un.org/en/docs/sc/quick
