The Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria or Russian Centre for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in the Syrian Arab Republic, founded 23 February 2016, states that it is a "peace monitoring center and information office" whose stated aim is to speed the peace negotiations between the Syrian Arab Republic and opposition groups. It is a joint Turkish-Russian enterprise founded in agreement with the US-led coalition and is headquartered in Khmeimim Air Base, Latakia, Syria. It is also tasked with coordinating humanitarian missions and organizing localities to sign up to cease fire agreements.
In May, the reconciliation center was able to deliver 4.7 tonnes of humanitarian aid in 10 missions within 24 hours.
The Russian Reconciliation Center has also reported on so-called "video brigades" that carry out staged filming of made-up scenes after airstrikes, shelling and incidents involving chemical weapons. It has also alleged that "consultants" for the brigades were known to locals as Al Jazeera cameramen. Al Jazeera has denied similar claims.
