For Moscow, a win in Syria but fraught with risksThe withdrawal of US forces from northern Syria was a win for President Vladimir Putin, strengthening Russia’s role as the key foreign player in the war-torn country. Russian officials said Tuesday they were working with Turkey to avoid confrontation with pro-regime forces in northern Syria, where Turkish troops have moved in against Kurdish fighters. Syrian government troops — backed by Russian forces since Moscow launched an intervention in 2015 — have also moved into the north under a deal reached with the Kurds.
