Russians evacuated from Syria return home

Dozens of Russians who escaped war-torn country with the Kremlin's help arrive in Moscow.

    About 70 Russians who left Syria with the Kremlin's help have arrived in Moscow.

    Russia insists, however, that it is not the start of a mass airlift of its citizens. It is believed tens of thousands of Russians are living in Syria, which is a close ally of Russia.

    Al Jazeera's Emma Hayward reports from Moscow.
