    April 25, 2019

    Research Analyst, IDSA, Mr. Rajorshi Roy’s article on the recently held presidential elections in Ukraine, titled ‘A New Chapter in Ukrainian History’ was published by the All India Radio (AIR) World Service, an external services division of AIR, on April 25, 2019.

    What is Russia up to in the Middle East?

    Russia’s military intervention in the Syrian civil war in 2015 is seen as a significant milestone in the geopolitics of the Middle East.
