The Russian Way of War in Syria: The Road to War, Political Objectives, and Military Strategy

What is the geopolitical logic behind Russia’s war in Syria and the instruments of statecraft that Moscow has used to pursue its objectives. What does Moscow’s 2015 Syria intervention say about the Russian Federation’s way of war, the Kremlin’s threat perception, and its approach to counterterrorism? How has Russia’s military performed in Syria, and what has been the war’s impact on Russian military capabilities? 

In this discussion we will examine how Russia is fighting in Syria – from strategic level down to the level of military operations –  and what this might tell us about the Russian way of war more broadly.
