Russia’s growing influence over the Mideast

Over the last four years, ever since Russia entered in force the Syrian conflict, Moscow reaffirmed its preeminent position in Damascus and the war-torn country at large. As other powers withdrew from regional affairs, Russia has seemingly achieved a generations old aspiration of having a major impact on the Middle East.

To discuss Moscow’s growing influence over this region: Prof. Zeev Khanin, Expert on Russian and Middle Eastern Studies, Bar Ilan and Ariel Universities, and Miss Paula Slier, Middle East Bureau Chief of Russia Today. Analyst Amir Oren. Host Jonathan Hessen.
