Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday that Russia respects ``Turkey's right to take measures to ensure its security'' but also expected it be ``proportionate to the task.'' He wouldn't comment on how long Moscow believes the Turkish offensive should last.
Russia moved quickly Tuesday to fill the void left by the U.S. troops' withdrawal from northern Syria, deploying its military to act as a buffer as Syrian government forces moved north under a deal with the Kurds, who have sought protection from the Turkish offensive.
In Tuesday's call, Russian President Vladimir Putin invited Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to visit Russia to discuss Syria.
