Perspective – Russian Influence in the Middle East

Perspective – Russian Influence in the Middle East

share this

This paper examines Russia’s efforts to regain influence in the Middle East. It analyzes Moscow’s attempt to capitalize on the United States’ political withdrawal from the region and the consequential power vacuum left behind. In the past, Russia has operated in the Middle East through traditional hard power strategies, supplying arms and equipment in support of regional hard-liners. But now, Russian strategy has shifted to a multi-sector approach. This paper will use the case studies of Syria, Turkey, and Egypt to demonstrate how Moscow is employing a combination of military, economic, and soft power methods to rebuild Russia’s reputation in the Middle East.
