RUS­SIA’S EXIT PLAN FOR AS­SAD

The Washington Times Weekly - - Geopolitics -

Western and Per­sian Gulf in­tel­li­gence sources told the Paris-based news­let­ter In­tel­li­gence Online re­cently that Moscow’s for­eign in­tel­li­gence ser­vice, known by the acro­nym SVR, has plans to res­cue Syr­ian Pres­i­dent Bashar As­sad, whose au­to­cratic regime is bat­tling a rebel net­work of al Qaeda-linked ter­ror­ists and proWestern rebels.

The SVR has drawn up an evac­u­a­tion plan for Mr. As­sad if the mil­i­tary sit­u­a­tion reaches the point where the regime can­not sur­vive.
