A cease-fire agreement between Syria’s government and weakened rebel forces that have been trying to topple it is scheduled to start on Friday, a potential turning point in a nearly six-year conflict that has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives and shredded every hope of resolution.

The Syrian government’s strongest ally, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, announced the deal on Thursday — itself a sign of how Moscow has become the dominant force in the war even as it pledged to scale back the large-scale intervention it began in Syria last year.
