Sudden withdrawal of Russian force from Syria
Russian president Vladimir Putin declares sudden withdrawal of Russian force against IS in Syria. Vladimir has sent Russian troops to Syria 5 months ago, paying no heed to the US criticisms. Moscow demands that the expedition to destroy IS and rebels against Bashar Al Asad, president of Russia’s allied coutry Syria, is successful.
In a meeting with the defense and foreign ministers Putin said, “Russian forces had largely fulfilled their objectives in Syria”. Withdrawal starts from Tuesday but no deadline of completion is given.
