    On Monday morning, the Russian president arrived at the Hmeymim base in Latakia province for the first time since 2015, when the anti-terrorist operation was launched in the Arab Republic. Take a look at the highlights of the official event in Sputnik’s photo gallery.

    During his first visit to the Hmeymim base in more than two years, Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered the withdrawal of Russian troops from Syria and held a separate meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad at the base.
