MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said an “humanitarian pause” in air strikes on Syria’s Aleppo had ended on Saturday and Moscow was not currently considering a return to the ceasefire, Russian news agencies reported.

Ryabkov said further extensions of the ceasefire would depend on the actions of opposition fighters on the ground.
