İrem UZUN-TDO- Russia has stationed troops between the Syrian army and Turkish forces in an attempt to prevent fresh clashes in northern Syria. It has said it will not allow clashes between Turkish and Syrian forces, as Turkey's military offensive in northern Syria continues."This would simply be unacceptable... and therefore we will not allow it, of course," said Moscow's special envoy for Syria, Alexander Lavrentyev. Russia's Ministry of Defence said its forces, which have been deployed in Syria since 2015, were patrolling along the "line of contact" between Syrian and Turkish forces.
Russia, which backs the Syrian government, said 'no one is interested' in fighting between Syrian government troops and Turkish forces and that Moscow 'is not going to allow it’.Vladimir Putin has moved quickly to establish himself as power-broker in northern Syria, including striking a pact between the Kurds and Syrian government, after Donald Trump suddenly ordered US forces to withdraw. Videos and photographs emerged of Russian forces occupying a former American base just outside of Manbij, which was hastily abandoned by US forces.
