Putin orders withdrawal of Russian forces from Syria

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered the start of the pullout of the Russian military from Syria, starting Tuesday.

Putin says the move should help serve as a stimulus for Syria’s political talks. The president says he coordinated the move with Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Putin said that the Russian airbase in Hmeimim in Syria’s coastal province of Latakia and a naval facility in the Syrian port of Tartous will continue to operate.
