As noted by the Ambassador, the cease-fire in Syria does not extend to the extremist group "Islamic state" and "Dzhebhat EN-Nusra" (banned in Russia), against which military operations are conducted.

On the eve of the UN special envoy on Syria Staffan de Mistura appealed to Russia and the United States with a call to save the negotiations on the peaceful settlement of the Syrian conflict.

According to him, the ceasefire regime, introduced in February, "barely alive." De Mistura believes that a truce could "fall at any moment".

According to Moscow, the responsibility for the failure of the negotiation process lies on the Syrian opposition, as it continues to demand the resignation of President Bashar al-Assad. "I think, already it is clear that repeated attempts to push this senseless ultimatum will not lead anywhere," said Borodavkin.
