An article published on Tabnak.ir, the online newspaper close to IRGC Commander Mohsen Rezaei, expressed worried about the Russian projects in Syria and the effect on Iran. In particular, the article underlined that the Russian goal and the Iranian one, are not the same. Moscow acted in Syria in order to contain Nato, a strategy that Putin is implementing since 2008 in Georgia. But, differently from what happened in Afghanistan, Russia has no intention to deploy many soldiers in Syria for long time. Today, For the Kremlin, Assad is a pawn to fight Isis, but in the next future Moscow wants to share the responsibility in Syria, with other partners, first with Turkey. Putin wants to distance Ankara from US and Nato and, in order to achieve this goal, he is ready to share the power with Erdogan. For this reason, in the next future it is possible that Iran and Russia will clash on Syria, especially when Putin will start to abandon Assad and the Shia militias.
