    Default Deniability and De-Escalation: Russia's Use of Military Contractors

    Bottom Line: Russia’s use of private military contractors in Syria lends the Kremlin deniability that becomes problematic when the U.S. tries to calculate how to retaliate against incursions again U.S. and coalition troops by the Assad regime. The problem reared its head earlier this month when the of U.S. conducted retaliatory strikes that, according to anonymous sources that spoke to Bloomberg, reportedly killed some 200 Russian contractors near eastern Dier el-Zour province in what could amount to the most lethal clash between U.S. and Russian citizens since the Cold War. The strikes were in response to Syrian government forces – thought to have been embedded with Russia contractors – attacking U.S.-backed rebels that were accompanied by U.S. advisors.
