Russian leader Vladimir Putin enjoys creating difficulties in the Middle East in order to prevent solutions to problems. He will veto any UN action that might lead to the destruction of ISIS or ending the conflict in Syria. His foreign policy is based on the principle of being an obstructionist to peaceful actions. Putin has blocked every effort to end terrorism in the Middle East. However, in the process of acting in this manner, the great leader has refused to confront how the Middle East directly impacts the safety of his beloved Mother Russia. Unfortunately for Russia, thousands of its Muslim citizens have gone to fight in the Middle East, and this can impact the safety of Russia.
A Russian official pointed out some problems for his nation. “We understand that these people have gained military experience and on top of that being religiously and politically inclined, upon returning h one can pose a serious threat to the national interests of our own country.” Yes, indeed, learning how to improvise destructive bombs in Iraq means upon return to Russia, one can do the same. The Putin policy of obstruction will one day lead to incredible terrorist activities in Russia. It is in the foreign policy interests of Russia to actively support efforts to destroy terrorism in the Middle East –or suffer the consequences in Russia!
