The Russia-Ukraine war and its effects on the Middle East and Syria

More than seven months into Russia’s war in Ukraine, it is too early to see its end, but enough time has passed in order to learn preliminary strategic and military lessons. For us in the Middle East, it is especially important to apply these emerging lessons to our region in general and most particularly to Syria, where Russia has air and naval assets, out of which it reinforced its formations in Ukraine, and whose presence bolstering the Assad regime carries a constant risk of friction with the Israel Defense Forces.

To help us analyse this issue, we are joined by Reserve Major General Gershon Hacohen, a senior armored corps commander with a lot of experience on the Syrian front; Reserve Brigadier General Doron Gavish, a former Air and Missile Defense Chief for the Israeli Military, and Professor Efrain Inbar, President of the Jerusalem Institute for Strategy and Security.
