The balance of military power, which is provided through the Russian participation in the Syrian conflict is an important lever for achieving a truce in the SAR. Such an opinion had been expressed on Thursday by the president of the Italian Institute of Higher school of geopolitics and applied sciences, political scientist Tiberio Graziani.




One of the reasons for the military involvement in Syria is that only on the basis of military balance of power – such a fragile truce can be achieved. Maybe it sounds like a paradox, but namely military force is a deterrent, and the truce is possible on this basis, not diplomatic”, said the expert. 


Graziani noted some additional positive effects of Russia’s policy in Syria. “Firstly, changes in the Turkish position, which is now more determined to fight against terrorism, and would be impossible without the influence of the Russian Federation”, said the analyst.
