PONARS Eurasia Policy Memo No. 199
Russia’s policy on the Syria crisis has been a litmus test revealing the more general pattern of Russian foreign policy thinking and behavior. This policy can hardly be understood fully if it is reduced to a mere ”outcome” of some static ”causes” or well-defined ”interests.” Rather, it should be seen as part of an actor-centered process that is activated and driven by a combination of several key factors and influences, including external and internal developments and constraints.
