Russia’s position on Syria seems rather paradoxical. First, because it was stated during a meeting of the UN Security Council, which has to resolve conflicts around the world. And second, because it shows the true face of Putin’s policy toward Syria. With its claims that it is ready to contribute to the de-escalation of tensions in Idlib, Moscow is bluffing because, for several months, the army of Syrian President Bashar Acad, together with the Russian Aviation, conducting a massive military operation in this troubled area.
