A Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman says that the cease-fire in Syria has been violated 31 times since it came into effect midnight Friday.

During a Wednesday press briefing in Moscow, Maria Zakharova rebuffed suggestions that the cease-fire would end after a two-week period.

When asked about the possible federalization in Syria, Zakharova said it is up to the Syrian people to determine their government's structure.

She echoed previous statements from Russian officials that the Kurds should be part of future peace talks in Syria
