Russian and Syrian militaries will halt any offensive actions.
Moscow announced Tuesday that Russian and Syrian air forces have stopped bombing Aleppo ahead of a brief truce, a move the Kremlin said showed "goodwill" as it faces mounting criticism for backing a brutal regime offensive.
During a meeting over the weekend co-chaired by Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov and U.S. secretary of state John Kerry, foreign ministers from Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar said they would work to separate moderate opposition groups in Aleppo from Syria's former al Qaida affiliate once known as the Nusra Front.
The United Nations said Russian Federation has communicated plans for two eight-hour cease-fires in rebel-held parts of Aleppo over "consecutive days" this week, implying there may be a further pause on Friday.
"This will ensure the safety of exit of civilians via six corridors and to prepare the wounded in the eastern part of Aleppo for evacuation", Xinhua news agency quoted Shoigu as saying.
But Vitaly Churkin, Russia's permanent representative to the United Nations, said "The chances of this plan succeeding are quite reasonable if the so-called "moderates" greatly outnumber al-Nusra fighters".
Russian Federation says its forces and the Syrian army will observe a "humanitarian pause" between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Thursday, to allow civilians and militants safe passage out of the city.
However, Russian and Syrian forces have only escalated their aerial and ground assault on the rebel-held areas in recent weeks.
Eight-hour pause in fighting announced for later this week as European Union says assault on Syrian city could amount to war crimes.

US officials said it was too soon to tell whether Russia's softer stance on Aleppo was part of something more lasting or a gesture by Moscow before it joins the Geneva talks.
A cease-fire brokered last month ended after Russian and Syrian warplanes carried out airstrikes that the West said targeted civilians and aid convoys around Aleppo.
The EU ministers said that they would press ahead with extending sanctions against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government, but stopped short of threatening measures against Russian Federation.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Ibrahim Alhaj, a spokesman for the Civil Defense, say that Tuesday's airstrikes hit villages of Anadan and Daret Azzehe.
"Strikes in the Aleppo region by the Russian and Syrian air forces are stopping today, starting at 10am", Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said in a televised briefing, adding the measure was "necessary" to pave the way for the truce.
They had no immediate word on casualties.
Russia has announced that Russian and Syrian warplanes are halting airstrikes on the besieged city of Aleppo. Syrian rebels, including al-Qaida militants, as well as the wounded and the sick will be allowed to leave to the neighbouring rebel-held province of Idlib.
"Russia now expects its partners.to take the baton and assist this humanitarian operation, to make sure the bandits leave Aleppo, especially its eastern part, in order for a real process of separation of the so-called moderate opposition from terrorist groups to begin", he told a conference call with reporters.
