MOSCOW, October 31. /TASS/. The UN representatives have not reported a single violation which could hamper their activity since the renewal of their mission in the Golan Heights area, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov told journalists on Wednesday.

“It should be noted that since the renewal of their mission in the Golan Heights area the UN representatives have not registered a single violation that could hamper their activity. As you understand, it is mainly due to the actions of the Russian military,” Konashenkov said.

He noted that the withdrawal of irreconcilable illegal armed groups to the Idlib de-escalation zone and the elimination of the Islamic State (outlawed in Russia) groups in the Golan Heights area helps establish a peaceful life in southwestern Syria, with refugees returning and international car traffic restored.

“The Russian military police are helping provide security for the population and support public order and patrolling the restored contact line in the Golan Heights. The Russian servicemen are monitoring the situation at six observation posts located along the contact line for the full-scale renewal of the UN mission’s activity in the Golan Heights,” Konashenkov specified.
