Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the return of Russian troops from Syria to his country.
Russia sent units of the armed forces, especially the air force, to Syria in 2015 to help the Syrian armed forces in its war against terrorism.
During his meeting with military college graduates, the Russian president said that 1,140 Russian military personnel had returned home from Syria in the past few days, as well as 14 helicopters and 13 aircraft.
As for the possible reasons behind the decision to return Russian troops fighting terrorism in Syria, the expert Andre Kushkin says that the main reason is due to the completion of the task assigned to the forces in Syria.
The independent political analyst Alexander Asafov agrees with this view, stressing that Russia has achieved its main mission in Syria by contributing to the defeat of the organization of a supporter.
Experts predict that a number of Russian military personnel will remain in Syria to support Russia's peace process in Syria.
For his part, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the media that Russia does not set a date for the return of all Russian troops stationed in Syria to the homeland, pointing out that this "depends on what is happening on the ground."
