On Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia would contribute to the establishment of groups aimed at monitoring the Syrian ceasefire in the de-escalation zones within the near future.
On May 4, Russia, Turkey and Iran signed the memorandum on establishment of four safe zones Syria as part of the Astana settlement talks.
