Russia will continue striking "terrorist targets", a deputy defence minister said at Moscow's airbase in Syria Tuesday, hours after the announcement that most of Russia's contingent in the country will be pulled back.
"It is still too early to speak of victory over terrorism. The Russian air group has a task of continuing to strike terrorist targets," deputy defence minister Nikolai Pankov was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies at the Hmeimim airbase where Moscow's warplanes are based.
