Abstract

Russian military intervention in Syria started around September 2015, after an official request from the Syria's Bashar Al-Assad government. A revanchist Russia, even with a stagnated mono-industrial economy surprised the international community with the pace of attack and will to sustain the operation. It is important therefore to study and have a clear idea of Russia's military strategy, objective, goals, and operational tactics, as geopolitical dynamics of Europe and Asia is changing rapidly.
