RUS­SIA’S mil­i­tary in­ter­ven­tion on the side of the dic­ta­tor, Bashar Al-As­sad, in Syria has es­tab­lished it as a re­gional power-bro­ker along with Iran and Tur­key. In chaotic, oil-rich Libya, where civil war rages, Rus­sia is back­ing Khal­ifa Haf­tar, an an­tiWestern war­lord. In Afghanistan, the Moscow gov­ern­ment is pro­vid­ing the Tal­iban with weapons and fund­ing in a bid to de­feat Is­lamic State and to make life harder for the Nato forces still op­er­at­ing there.
