Russian air strikes

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that the peace process in Syria would be "complicated" but that there were no other ways of ending the conflict.

He added, however, that his country's air force would continue its bombing campaign against ISIL, al-Nusra and other "terrorist groups" in Syria after the truce deal enters into force.

"The decisive fight against them will, without doubt, be continued," the Russian president said during a meeting of the FSB security service in Moscow.
