Who’s Afraid of Peace in Syria?

In the sixty-eighth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Kommersant, and Komsomolskaya Pravda. He discusses the context of the recent shooting of the Russian military plane SU-25 over Idlib as it was presented in the Russian press, addressing the question of who is afraid of peace in Syria. In addition, he examines increasing tensions between Russia and Japan regarding the militarization of the Kuril Islands. Lastly, he discusses two pressing political issues making their mark in the Russian domestic politics: the recent conviction and sentencing of a high-level government official for bribes and corruption, and the public attitudes toward the remaining eight candidates running for president.

  1. Informative as always Filip, thanks!

    • I Forgot to ask, but what is your assessment of Putin’s wealth? Are the figures in the MSM such as $40 billion, $70 billion, and even $200 billion anywhere near the truth, or are they complete fabrications?
