I am no expert on Middle East politics but this move by Russia surprised
us all. They still keep their bases in the region, but I think no-one
(except maybe the US military?) was expecting this. Does it make peace
in the country more (or less) possible? I only hope that all players
work towards a peaceful and fair outcome for all in this war-torn land.
The people of Syria have suffered too much.
