Kremlin Administration head Sergei Ivanov said that Moscow is not easing the fight against terrorism in Syria, but with smaller military contingent.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia intends to intensify its fight against terrorism in Syria, but such a large military contingent is no longer needed for that, Kremlin Administration head Sergei Ivanov said Tuesday.

“We aren’t easing [the fight against terrorism], we are intensifying it, but we don’t need such a contingent for that, which is there today. Actually, at the given moment, I believe that the first planes have already hit the skies for home,” Ivanov told journalists when asked whether Russia’s anti-terrorism fight would weaken after Russia withdraws most of its military out of Syria.
