Russian President Vladimir Putin calls a ceasefire agreement struck between Russia and the United States a "real step that can stop the bloodshed" in Syria.
The agreement sets an example in multilateral efforts to combat terrorism, Putin says in a televised speech.
Russia will now hold talks with the Syrian government in order to implement the truce, which is set to begin on Saturday.
