Putin needs conflicts in Middle East

Russia started to bomb targets in Syria from warships stationed on the Caspian Sea on Wednesday. According to Moscow, IS targets were hit. But contrary to what he affirms in public, President Putin wants to keep the conflicts in the Middle East going, the regional paper Ouest France believes: "Putin's goal is to polarise interests according to his own idea of international relations. Here the dividing line would no longer separate states according to ideology - as was the case during the Cold War - or run between Israel and the Arab world. Instead it pitches a West that is in decline against states that reject Western interference and the values used to justify it. ... As peace in the Middle East would diminish its influence, Moscow is doing its best to keep up the conflicts in the region."
