MOSCOW (AFP) – Russia has sent a battalion of military police to keep order in Aleppo, Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said Friday, after the Syrian regime took full control of the ravaged city.

“We sent in a battalion of military police yesterday evening to maintain order in the liberated territories,” Shoigu told Russian President Vladimir Putin.

A Russian battalion normally numbers between 300 and 400 soldiers.

The Russian military police is a subdivision of the military that is meant to ensure order and discipline in the army.

Putin hailed the recapture of Aleppo as a “very important part of the normalisation in Syria” and said that “everything needs to be done for fighting to stop on all Syrian territory.”
