The conversation took place on Saturday at the initiative of the Turkish side, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"The situation in Syria, as well as the incident with a Turkish warplane were discussed during a telephone conversation," the Foreign Ministry said.
The Turkish warplane F-4 Phantom, disappeared over the Mediterranean, near the Syrian coast, about 09:00 GMT on Friday.
The Turkish and Syrian sides are searching for the pilots within rescue activities in Syria's territorial waters.
Damascus said it shot down the Turkish warplane after it invaded in Syria's airspace.
"[The thing that happened] should not be regarded as a hostile action against Turkey in any case," spokesman for the Syrian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday. "It was only the protection of the country's sovereignty. It is an incident, not an attack.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has expressed concern about the serious consequences that the incident with the plane may have for the whole region.
