Russian President, Vladimir Putin, asked the Russian Ministry of Defense to provide all support needed to help Syrian authorities demine of the recently-liberated city of Palmyra.

The assistance will include explosives experts and technological devices and robots to help the Syrian Army’s engineering units defuse the huge number of bombs and VBIEDs left by ISIS before being forced out of the city.

“Yesterday, thanks to the support of the Russian Air Force and our special operations, Palmyra, a key cultural center, was freed from terrorists. The liberation of this city has a strategic importance in the fight against terrorism in Syria,” head of the Russian General Staff Valery Gerasimov stated.

On Sunday, March 26th, the Syrian Armed Forces, backed by the allied Russian fighter jets, have recaptured Palmyra from the self-proclaimed Islamic State.
