Russia’s long history of involvement—and warfare—in the region is largely unknown to Westerners, but it helps to explain President Vladimir Putin’s decision last fall to intervene in Syria’s civil war. Mr. Putin’s gambit on behalf of the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad caught many in the West by surprise. Critics have assailed it as a miscalculated bid to replace the U.S. as the dominant outside power in the region.
But when viewed from Moscow, Mr. Putin’s Middle Eastern adventure looks like something very different: an overdue return to geopolitical aspirations that stretch back not only to the Soviet era but to centuries of czarist rule. “The Middle East is a way to showcase that the period of Russia’s absence from the international scene as a first-rate state has ended,” said Fyodor Lukyanov, the head of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy in Moscow, which advises the Kremlin and other government institutions.
In Syria, Mr. Putin has achieved notable results. Russia has prevented the collapse of the Assad regime, which seemed imminent just a year ago. It also has positioned itself at the center of the Middle East’s diplomatic maneuvering, challenging the formerly unrivaled influence of the U.S. in the region.

Pro-Tehran media have suggested Iran is making a limited withdrawal from Syria with the Republican Guard’s 25th ‘Karbala’ brigade recalled home.
Although the reports in the pro-regime outlet have not yet been confirmed, it is undeniable that Iran is suffering heavy losses in Syria. Over 700 troops and pro-Tehran militants have been killed in Syria fighting since 2012.
In one incident last week, 12 Iranian fighters died in a battle with Syrian rebels, with their bodies still held by the opposition.
Such a considerable death toll highlights the lengths Tehran will go to keep Bashar al-Assad in power, but many ordinary Iranians are wondering if the sacrifice is worth it.
“Iran is providing quite significant economic and military support to Syria,” said Sanam Vakil, associate fellow at Chatham House.
