Paul R. Gregory, Politico: On Syria, Putin goes for his holy grail

Ahead of his meeting with Obama at UN, Russian ruler has gone from shadows of isolation to a major deal maker with the West.

On Monday September 28, Russia’s president will propose to the UN General Assembly his plan for a broad coalition to defeat ISIS. His words will be backed by clear evidence of a substantial Russian military buildup in Syria, including Russian fighters entering Syrian airspace with transponders off. Whereas Russian troops and equipment were delivered to Ukraine in strict secrecy, the Kremlin seems to be purposely telegraphing its military moves in Syria to tee up Putin’s speech.
