    Russian representatives in the Russian-Turkish commission on the Syrian truce have registered five violations of the ceasefire regime over the past 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the document, the Russian side cannot confirm any violations registered by Turkey.

    "The Russian part of the joint Russian-Turkish commission on issues related to violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 5 violations over the past 24 hours in Latakia [1], and Hama [4] provinces," the ministry's Center for Syrian reconciliation said in a daily bulletin.

    "The Turkish side has also registered 5 violations: one in Damascus, three in Homs, and one in Hama provinces," the bulletin said.

    The nationwide ceasefire in Syria backed by Russia and Turkey came into effect on December 30 and was later supported by a UN Security Council resolution. Russia and Turkey are monitoring and registering violations of the truce on a daily basis.
