Russia followed the lead of Western powers on September 30 and began direct
military intervention in Syria – using the same form (air strikes) and the
same declared enemy, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Russia's campaign, aimed to shore up the beleaguered regime of Syrian
dictator Bashar Assad, will also target the al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front
and other armed groups fighting the dictatorship.
