Moscow, SANA – The Russian Council of the Federation (Senators) ratified on Wednesday a protocol to an agreement with Syrian Arab Republic on the deployment of the Russian Armed Forces aviation group in Syria.

The protocol regulates Russia’s aviation group deployment in Syria, its movable and immovable assets in the country and matters connected to its counterterrorist operation, according to Sputnik, citing the Kremlin press service.

The Council of the Federation endorsed the protocol after the lower house, the State Duma, ratified it last Friday, and it will be forwarded to Russian President Vladimir Putin for signature.
