    The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation at the Hmeimim airbase registered a total of five violations of the ceasefire regime in Syria in the last 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — "The cessation of hostilities in Syria has been respected in most of Syrian provinces. However, a total of five violations of the ceasefire regime have been registered in Damascus province," the ministry said in a daily bulletin posted on its website.

    The Russia-US brokered ceasefire regime in Syria came into force on February 27. The Nusra Front and the Islamic State terrorist groups, which are outlawed in Russia, are not part of the ceasefire deal.
