 Russians continue airstrikes in Syria. Large-scale withdrawal not on agenda, - Pentagon

Russian warplanes actually leave Syria, while a large-scale withdrawal of forces is out of question so far.

Censor.NET informs citing CNN referring to Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook.

According to him, it is not clear how fully Russia is withdrawing

"We've seen in the last 24 hours Russians continue to engage in some airstrikes in Syria," Cook said.

The U.S. needs to wait to assess Russia's real actions in Syria and not what the Kremlin declares, the Pentagon spokesman said. Following the withdrawal of the main army group from Syria, some 1,000 Russian soldiers are still deployed in Syria, the Western media argue.
