Currently in Syria there is a truce, an agreement which was reached by Moscow and Washington. It entered into force on February 27, 2016 and implies that military action will continue only in respect of the groups “Islamic state” and “dzhebhat EN-Nusra” (both banned in Russia) and other terrorist organizations identified by the UN security Council.
