The reason Russia's military presence has ..., 14 Sept 2015 [cached]
The reason Russia's military presence has come into the spotlight in recent weeks is because the West itself is planning a more active military engagement there, said Yevgeny Satanovsky, president of the Middle East Institute, a Moscow-based think tank.
"What Russia is doing is preventing a Libya scenario for Syria, when then-President Dmitry Medvedev trusted the West to handle it and we now see a country in ruins," said Satanovsky in a phone interview.
"Russia will not have troops on the ground, but it will prevent that scenario," he said.
cogito ergo sum: August 2013, 1 Aug 2013 [cached]
Yevgeny Satanovsky, head of the Middle East Institute, a think tank specializing in Middle East studies, said there was no chance that the attack had been carried out by Assad's order, and that it was more likely an attempt by rebels to draw Western states into the war because they knew they were outnumbered by Assad's army.
Satanovsky voiced an argument similar to that of Assad himself: "A chemical weapon is a weapon of mass destruction, it is impossible that Assad used it in the capital where his own army is located," he said.
He offered a different explanation for the attack, saying it may have been carried out by Assad's brother, Maher, an army commander with access to chemical weapons facilities.
"He has very bad relations with Assad and if the latter found out that his brother was involved in the attack, he would kill him," Satanovsky said.
Ultimately, Satanovsky said, there's nothing that Russia could do to counter an intervention.
"There are no strong economic ties with the U.S., they in no way depend on Russia, just as Russia doesn't depend on the U.S.," he said.

MOSCOW, November 21 (Itar-Tass) -- One has to be rough in order to stop unrestrained piracy offshore Somalia, President of the Middle East Studies Institute Yevgeny Satanovsky told Itar-Tass on Friday.
"There is no other way to do that but destroy the entire infrastructure of the pirates. The war in Congo, the genocide in Rwanda and the drug trafficking in Afghanistan are illustrative examples of the kind," he said.
Hundreds of attacks occur there each year, and Russia must think about security of its ships if they have to take the route frequently," Satanovsky said.
And re that Satanovsky @ your 24, wow, what is he, a Russian neocon?
Yevgeny Satanovsky, president of the Russian Jewish Congress, told The Jewish Week in an interview last week that the best hope of Russian Jewry - and of Russia itself - is to spurn Europe and to strengthen ties with the United States and Israel. ... A portly 44-year-old with a full red beard, sharp wit and keen intellectual sensibility who is always ready with a "big picture" geopolitical analyses of Russia and the world, Satanovsky was an underground Jewish activist during the Soviet era who went on to start a successful business during the early 1990s, which helped to fund many activities of the Va'ad, the first nationwide Jewish umbrella body.
The founder of the Institute for Israeli and Middle-Eastern Studies in Moscow, Satanovsky has entrée to top media, business and governmental circles in the Russian capital, as well as to policy makers in Washington and Jerusalem.
