Russia withdraws forces from Syria, starting with aircraft carrier
Russia is starting to withdraw forces from Syria and its aircraft carrier group will be the first to leave, the Russian armed forces chief says, the BBC wrote.
The announcement comes days after Russia and Turkey negotiated a ceasefire in Syria which is largely holding, according to the UN, the BBC added.
Russia has carried out air strikes on anti-government rebels since 2015.
Moscow’s involvement is credited with turning the war in favour of its ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the BBC indicated.
