It has been reported CNN and L.Ikeji that the US on Monday
revealed that it is “suspending its participation in bilateral channels
with Russia” saying Russia has failed to keep up to it’s part of the
cease fire agreement in Aleppo, Syria.

According to the US, all it’s relations with Vladmir Putin’s nation has been suspended, a decision they didn’t take lightly.
In recent days, Russian and Syrian aircraft have carried out attacks in
Aleppo, using bunker-busting bombs, incendiary munitions, cluster bombs,
barrel bombs and thermobaric bombs, which scatter a cloud of explosive
particles before detonating in devastating blasts, according to American
intelligence officials.

“This is not a decision that was taken lightly,” United State Department
spokesman John Kirsaid in a statement. Everybody’s patience with
Russia has run out,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told
reporters Monday while addressing the decision.

According to the statement, US military and civilian personnel that were
sent to Geneva, Switzerland, to work with the Russians on the Joint
Implementation Center for the Aleppo ceasefire will now be withdrawn and
sent home.
Earnest said

 ”Russia had lost credibility making a series of commitments without
any indication they committed to following them,” saying Russia
and its Syrian regime allies tried “to bomb civilian populations into
submission. Their unwillingness to uphold the cease-fire accord was
demonstrated their intensified attacks against civilian areas,
targeting of critical infrastructure such as hospitals, and preventing
humanitarian aid from reaching civilians in need.”

When asked if the U.S kept to their own side of the deal in the
ceasefire agreement, State Department spokesperson Elizabeth Trudeau
said ‘we believe we did’

“Cooperation over Syria was the Obama administration’s last and best
shot for arresting the downward spiral in the bilateral relationship
with Russia,” said Andrew S. Weiss, a former White House expert on
Russia who is vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for
International Peace. The mistrust and hostility toward the United States
the Russian leadership is real and growing. It is going to be the
driving force behind Russian external behavior for many years to come”

 They have been in war of words. We wish them well
