A Russian military convoy arrived at the north-eastern Syrian border town of Kobane on Wednesday.
Russian military police are set to facilitate the withdrawal of Kurdish forces 30 kilometres (18.6 miles) away from the border within the next 150 hours, as per the agreement reached between Turkey and Russia on Tuesday.
Moscow and Ankara have agreed to establish a ‘safe zone’ in north-eastern Syria and to carry out joint border patrols.
Turkey's military offensive, dubbed 'Operation Peace Spring' began on October 9, days after the White House announced a withdrawal of US troops from the area.
