This book is the first to offer a comprehensive survey of Moscow’s foreign policy interests in Syria. The author considers the Kremlin’s diplomacy on Syria within the broader system of Russian foreign policy in the Middle East; he analyses the influence of Russian domestic dimensions on Moscow’s approaches to the subject; and he considers how Moscow’s priorities in Syria have evolved during the last five years and what factors influenced this evolution.

Key factors considered include:

- Russian presence in the Middle East before and after the fall of the Soviet Union

- The challenge of the “Arab Spring”

- Why it was so important to save Assad?

- How serious is the jihadist threat for Russia?

- Russian military involvement in the Syrian conflict: what will be the outcome?

- Significance of Moscow’s military intervention in the wider Middle East context
