On Foreign Entanglements, Rob speaks with Dmitry about Russian foreign and security policy. Rob asks Dmitry why the Russians have continued to support the Assad regime in Syria. They then discuss Russia’s approach to Responsibility to Protect. Rob wonders how Russia conceives of the relationship between US foreign policy and Islamic extremism. Finally, Dmitry suggests that some in the Obama administration quietly welcome the obstructionist role that Russia has played at the UN on Syria.
