The rogue state network

Reuters --

Russia plans to supply Syria with 200,000 tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) per year via the Crimean port of Kerch, two trading sources told Reuters.

It looks like the Russian sanctions busting plan is to invade enough places and prop up enough dictators so that there will be a trade zone that they entirely control.

Note the White House summary of a President Obama phone call with President Putin:

The leaders committed to remain in close coordination as the JCPOA [Iran deal] is operationalized and also expressed a desire to work together on reducing regional tensions, particularly in Syria.
