In this ninth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Prof. Filip Kovacevic discusses the front page articles from four Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Izvestia, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, and Pravda. He focuses on the unveiling of the memorial plaque in central Moscow for the ex-Russian prime minister, diplomat, and scholar Yevgeny Primakov, the intellectual equivalent of Henry Kissinger in the Russian geopolitical thought, the increasing militarization of the Mediterranean, the potential Russian-led peace-keeping mission in Syria, the Russian-Turkish relations over Syria, and the Russian Communists' eulogy of Fidel Castro and the world-historical mission of communism.
