MEI Managing Editor Matthew Czekaj speaks with scholars
Iulia-Sabina Joja, Alex Vatanka, Yörük Işık, Charles Lister, and
Roger Kangas on Russia's current standing in the Middle East a year
since re-invading Ukraine.
How has Russian aggression in Ukraine redrawn Moscow’s
relationships in the MENA region? And as the Middle East
increasingly becomes a key area of global great power competition,
is Russia still a meaningful player there, politically,
economically, militarily, and diplomatically?
