Sooner or later Assad will be discarded by Russia who are his only safe guard from a lynching , Syria is a failed state which has been bled to death by its dreadful leader Assad and his cohorts in an effort to retain power , the Russian interest is Strategic and the Iranian influence on Assad is annoying the Russians that is why Israel is able to launch over 500 attacks in 2020 on Syrian , Iranian and Hezbollah assets in Syria because Russia covertly assists

This will be Assad's 21st year as President.
I wish Russia would hurry up and discard him.
Assad is about 55 and still serves a strategic purpose for both Russia and Iran , his leadership has seen his country turned into a failed state where various sectors are controlled by various parties , his army is unable to operate without Russian and Iranian support and intervention and this is in turn opposed by the Kurds , the US , Turkey and Israel (to name but a few) ISIL is regrouping , rearming and again it is recruiting .
Putin is an excellent cold blooded strategist and he sees that no matter how he tries he cannot achieve either peace or stability and at the same time he also sees Assad play the Russians off against the Iranians .
Assad will offered up at a time and place which suits Russia and when it happens there will be multiple parties involved and no Russian hands to be seen
