Non-military forms and means of struggle have received unprecedented technological development and acquired dangerous and sometimes violent aspects.

In short, President Putin is taking into consideration a complex series of global developments and opportunities. He will act decisively, but not in haste. The Russian military intervention in Syria, launched last September, has stabilized the Assad regime and seen the Syrian Army rebuilt into a far more effective fighting force. Putin has also seen that Iran’s effectiveness in Syria has proven to be over-rated.

Russia is now quietly back in Syria on a scale equal to the peak of the late 2015 intervention.
