"The atrocious crimes of extremists are aimed at scaring the peaceful population, subverting attempts to reach a long term political settlement to the Syrian crisis in the interests of all Syrians and efforts to end violence and bloodshed," it said in a statement.

Moscow said it "decisively condemns" the "inhuman attacks by terrorists" and expressed condolences for the victims.

It also called for a "proper principled reaction from the international community."

It stressed the importance of "reliably blocking" attempts by IS, Al-Nusra Front and other groups to "further aggravate the situation in Syria and around it" and inflame division between different faith groups.
