Putin Seeks to Cement Ties With Iran, Turkey in Rare Trip Abroad

Russian President Vladimir Putin is due to travel to the Middle East this week, a rare foreign trip meant to signal that the protracted and costly war in Ukraine has not diminished Moscow’s place on the world stage.

In only his second trip outside of Russia since the country invaded Ukraine in February, Mr Putin will travel to Tehran on Tuesday, where he will meet Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi. The visit reflects the importance Mr Putin places on maintaining the influence Russia has gained through years of military and diplomatic intervention in the Middle East.
