Russia’s foreign minister, Sergey V. Lavrov, warned Wednesday that outside encouragement of antigovernment uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa could lead to “a very big war that will cause suffering not only to countries in the region, but also to states far beyond its boundaries.”
Mr. Lavrov said Russia would use its position on the United Nations Security Council to veto any United Nations authorization of military strikes against Syria

Russia is not in position to get involved in military sense. They can always provide sophisticated weapons to Syrians and Iranians and make it 'extremely' costly for the attacking countries. Iran can attack UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi oil fields with via Russian intelligence support. Next thing we know is oil is sitting at $250/barrel. Next thing we also notice is Russians have gotten drunk in celebration over the windfall.

it's strange that they'll bat for one ally, syria, while steering the west to attack iran, by allowing western resolutions.
it makes me think iran is more heavily armed than led to believe. forget s-300 missile defence systems the west is afraid of.
they might have the more deadly and effective s-400 stored away for when shtf.
