    Russia's Five Fronts
    In the near future, the Kremlin will be forced to focus on five areas of conflict, which are evident from the explicit and indirect threats to the Russian state.
    Turkey as a new element of instability

    Increased activity from Turkey, with the support of the US and the EU, could put Russia in a difficult position. Northern Syria may be subject to attacks not only from militants but also from Turkish government forces. Previously, Ankara announced its intention to support the Syrian Turkmen who live in that area. After the incident with the downed Russian jet, Turkey may behave more aggressively. As a member of NATO, it has received support from the EU. Enticed with the promise of membership in the future, in exchange for the containment of immigrants, Erdogan will have more latitude. The conflict with Russia is also beneficial to Erdogan, as it diverts attention away from internal problems and scandals.

    Ukraine

    The escalation of the conflict in Syria can be used by Ukraine to intensify military operations in the Donbass. The situation in the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics has been quite tense as of late. We can not exclude the coordination of action on two fronts at the same time, through Washington. Since the Minsk Agreement cease-fire, any response from Lugansk and Donetsk Republics, and Russia's support, will be used by the west to favor Kiev.

    Fifth column

    Russia's previous actions to block internal agents of the West were quite successful. Opposition leader Alexei Navalny was adjudicated and a number of western accounts and revenue streams in Russia have been closed. The Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation recognized that the foreign "Open Society" and "Support" foundations are not desirable on Russian territory any longer. Nevertheless, events show that the West is using every opportunity to escalate social conflict in the country. So, the discontent truck drivers who disagree with the new tax, have already led into a coalition of disgruntled drivers with the political opposition that is artificially fueled by the western media.

    There's a battle going on in the Baltic, where Russia is attempting to dominate the safe passages with Naval activity (submarines and ships). Russia is also pursuing the Artic ice territory for rich oil reserves. Although the Artic conflicts are being managed by U.S., Canada, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Great Britain, they do not want Russia to expand passed their current border controls. The past decade, Russia has exhibited tactics of bullying their way into expansion into the Artic. As for the Baltic, the Baltic Nations with more to loose from Russia dominating the waters are hunting down their submarines and targeting their ships.

    In Eastern Europe the countries that resent Russia's expansion are very reactive. These many countries are much in unity attempting to formalize mutual and benefitting goals. Some of these Eastern Europe countries are very corrupt, which seems to destabilize and agreements in a pact against Russia. Putin will exercise this destabilization to benefit his agenda. U.S. and many NATO nations are funding these countries, such as Ukraine for weapons and training. I have no doubt that Ukraine has a future goal of reclaiming Crimea.

    Putin's Russian economic status is going backwards and the world will soon begin to see where Russia is going to have to play more friendly in the world. Putin is showing change by harmonizing with U.S. and NATO on ISIL. However, be cautious of any Putin deals on Syria. Putin is cagy and calculating like a fox-bred panther. I like making comparisons of Napoleon with Putin, which both are short in height, boast of their accomplishments and display acts of aggression in the world.

    Again the comparison is wrong; Russia is in a lot less mess than the US; Don't forget all the wars we are/were in, compared to the Russians since WWII. I must say that they got out in time in Afghanistan, but the stupid US is there now already 14 years and the progress is just about zero. As soon as we lift our boots that country it will be in no time an ISIS stronghold. So it is easy to paint Putin black, but we ourselves have a lot to learn from our mistakes, but don't. What Putin is spending on his adventures is peanuts of the trillions we have spent on our wars. So look at us first, before to criticize others.
