A selection of experts answer a new question from Judy Dempsey on the foreign and security policy challenges shaping Europe’s role in the world.
Emma Beals Independent journalist and Syria specialist
Russia cannot create a just and lasting peace in Syria, but it is navigating the regional military landscape and the international political environment to create the circumstances in which a reduction in violence is possible in the future.
The current escalation in violence will lead Russia to push events on the ground until its upper hand is undeniable; then Moscow is likely to go back to the negotiating table. An attempt to end the war solely militarily would have the Russians bogged down in an Afghan-style quagmire, but reaching a negotiated truce now would also lock them into an ongoing stalemate. http://carnegieeurope.eu/strategiceurope/?fa=64714&mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTWpRMU5UUXlZMkpsWlRobSIsInQiOiJ3aFlNOFZ0XC83TEpFT3VOTjBKS1ZSMldwXC9GM0hmazUxYWlwWnpMUEI3NlR3OFwvaFIyNkRobEpaNUJQTWpYeDM0TTBcLzdxeWVGcDd5RXN6V3U4N01Ba3FRUFM0ZWFXWmJock15Q0RPOEhzZ2M9In0%3D
