Russia, alongside Turkey and Iran, is a guarantor of the ceasefire regime in Syria. Moscow has also been assisting Damascus through supporting the struggle against terrorist groups, providing humanitarian aid to local residents and facilitating the return of refugees.

Damascus is gradually regaining control over the crisis-affected country ravaged by the Daesh terrorist group and militants from other fractions as the war in the region has entered its ninth year. During the whole time of the conflict some 5.6 million Syrians fled the country to neighboring states and to Europe.
