The United States has failed after an extended period to separate the moderate rebels from the Islamist militants, making the ceasefire a frustrating process for Russia.
Meanwhile, Russia has acknowledged it is doing all it can to protect the ceasefire agreement.
“Russia is exterting all possible effort to restrain Government troops from returning fire,” Senior Army General Viktor Poznikhir said.
Russia are making suggestions that the game has now changed in Syria with the latest airstrikes by the United States.
Speaking on Rossiya 24 Television the Rusisan Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said: “If earlier we had suspicions that the Nusra Front is protected this way, now, after today’s airstrikes on the Syrian army we come to a really terrifying conclusion for the entire world: the White House is defending IS [ISIS or Daesh).”
