Russia’s approach in Syria became the main topic of discussion across the world. Many experts decided to analyze it and share their opinion on it.
Swedish defense analyst Stefan Ring stated that Russia instantly became one of the major players in the international community. They managed to do this by initiating an anti-ISIL military campaign in Syria.
Russia‘s success on Syrian ground will also ensure talks on the Syrian settlement. It is highly possible that Russia demands that Assad remains in his position, which is contrary to the plans of the US and Europe.
Any decision concerning the current crisis in Syria can’t be made without taking into account Russia’s interests. However, this turn of events puts pressure on Obama because the Republicans are going to pressure him if Assad takes part in negotiations.
Stefan Ring also added that the West won’t find the results of elections in Syria acceptable because the election can be held only in the area controlled by the government.
