Russia won't care as long as their bases are save. That's the only reason Putin backed Assad.
What many forget is Turkey has one of the strongest military of all NATO members.
Who exactly would stand up to them?
Erdogan is an icecold opportunist. He saw Europe loosing it's strongest military with Brexit. How the US slowly but surely starts eating herself.
He only wants the northern top of Syria to make sure no Kurd will ever bother Turkey again.
And he will succeed.
