It is/was bound to happen
Not Russian warships no, but a Libya-like war powers act to invade Syria
Is Russia trying to stop this?
Personally I strongly doubt Russia is doing this out of the goodness of their hearts
They are part of the UN Security Council made up of the world's largest top arms dealers on the planet.
This is something regarding their interest.
Maybe it has to do with arms trade or knowledge, Russia does share military knowledge at times, except with India, when selling military equipment.
All in all, I think we should stay out of this
