    Vladimir Putin stated that ceasefire in Syria should lead to the process of political settlement of the crisis in the country.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The ceasefire in Syria should lead to the process of political settlement of the crisis in the country, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday.

    "We are counting on the cessation of use of armed force from both sides with whoever's support including our support, will lead to appeasement [in Syria].
