12. It was never about refugees for the Russians

They need to protect one of their very few warm water ports and showcase their weaponry to the world as competition to American weaponry. That's why they openly lie about intercepting American missiles, so they can sell stuff to shady characters who want to intercept American missiles. It's why they use stealth aircraft against ISIS who have no radar.

There is some scuttlebutt that they're trying to build oil and gas pipelines in the area but there are probably easier ways to do that.
