The Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria, officially known as the Centre for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides and Refugee Migration Monitoring in the Syrian Arab Republic, was founded on February, 23, 2016.

The organisation claims it is a “peace monitoring centre and information office”that aims to speed up the peace negotiations between the Syrian Arab Republic and opposition groups.

The enterprise is run by both the Russian and Turkish governments and was founded in agreement with the US-led coalition.

The organisation is headquartered in Khmeimim Air Base, Latakia, Syria. Other responsibilities include coordinating humanitarian missions and organising localities to sign up to ceasefire agreements.

The reconciliation centre allegedly delivered 4.7 tonnes of humanitarian aid in 10 missions within 24 hours, in May 2017, t according to the Russian Ministry of Defence.
