MOSCOW, April 19. /TASS/. Moscow will raise the issue of putting on the list of terrorists extremist groups that change names and keep undermining the truce in Syria at the United Nations Security Council, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Tuesday.

"There is evidence that Jabhat al-Nusra [...] is trying to disguise itself under new names, uniting with small groups not included in terrorist lists," Lavrov said. "They are thus trying to escape retribution. We are generalizing such facts. I am convinced we will soon raise the issue in the UN Security Council."

A ceasefire regime brokered by Russia and the United States on February 22 officially came into effect in Syria at midnight Damascus time on February 27. This does not cover terrorist groups such as Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra, both outlawed in Russia, and other groups recognized as terrorist by the United Nations Security Council.
