Yesterday AP reported that Russia’s defense minister has announced that four battalions of Russian military police are currently deployed in safe zones in Syria.

Thus far, four battalions of the Russian military police formed in the Southern Military District are currently ‘carrying out tasks in Syria’s de-escalation zones,’ Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said Wednesday.

According to Sputnik News, Viktor Ozerov, the chairman of the defense and security committee of the upper house of Russia’s parliament, stated that Russia may boost its military police contingent in Syria for work in de-escalation zones.

Initially, Russia deployed a military police unit to Aleppo at the end of 2016.

More announcements regarding Russia’s operations in Syria are expected today.
