Russia's Intervention in Syria: Lessons Learned

  • CSIS 1616 Rhode Island Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20036 United States (map)

In September 2015, Russia intervened militarily in Syria in support of the Syrian government. Over the next 15 months, Russia bolstered the Assad government in its efforts to retake large portions of the country and targeted Assad’s adversaries, often with considerable civilian cost. What has Russia learned from over a year of conflict? And what can we deduce from this conflict about Russian military capabilities and strategy? Ruslan Pukhov of the Center for the Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST) in Moscow will join us to break down the lessons learned.
