Why is Russia trying to give concessions to the Kurds against the will of the Syrian government?

Russia appears to be trying to achieve three goals through mediation between the Kurds and the Syrian government. The first goal is to implement oil contracts between Russia and Syria in the northeastern areas that are now under American control. Russia’s next goal, meanwhile, is to resolve the crisis politically by involving the Kurds in the political process as a concession to the West to enter the reconstruction of Syria and eventually become a trusted mediator in the international arena.

Opinion: What is Syria’s new field for Russia and Iran?

Syria; the country that has been witnessed a global quasi war in the last ten years, and has been a huge turbulence square between Takfiri groups on the one side and the Resistance forces on the other side. With spreading the protests against Bashar Assad’s (Syrian president) in 2012 and turning it into a terrible war, that displaced millions of families, and left thousands of dead and wounded people, not only did not any help to improving the situation at that time, but also it led that the groups that had no connection with the historical background of this country, seek their own share from Syria. On the other side of the square, the Islamic Republic of Iran and Russia presented to support from Bashar al-Assad; because falling of Bashar al-Assad was putting Syria in the hands of countries and groups that were following their own interests, not the stability and security of the Syrian people.
