Why did Russia choose to use military force in Syria? And why do we hear that Russia is not bombing IS, but rather bombing the opposition against Assad? Was the claim to fight terrorism just a pretext for getting involved? Is Russia expecting an easy retreat? This episode will pose these questions and give you some answers from a Russian perspective. FFI's senior research fellow Tor Bukkvoll is talking with director Ruslan Pukhov and deputy director Maxim Shepovalenko from Centre for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST) in Moscow.
