    US State Department spokesman John Kirby said that he would comment on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s order to withdraw the Russian air group from Syria after he takes a look at the reports about Putin's order.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The State Department has not yet assessed reports of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s order to withdraw the Russian air group from Syria, State Department spokesman John Kirby said on Monday.

    "I did not see that report before coming out here today. So, I am going to have to reserve comment until we have a chance to take a look at it and make an assessment," Kirby stated.
