Because Syria is Russias very long term national partner, and Turkey is
also making up with Russia. ISTM that Turkey will back off completely
now and stop sending the jihadis to Syria.
Could be wrong of course, but I don't think Russia would accept
rapproachment if Turkey keeps fighting Syria. I.e., Erdogan will have
his hand in the Russian Turk Stream money pot, and will give up Syrian
ISIS oil smuggling trade in return - he will make MUCH more money
shipping Russian gas, then laundering ISIS oil. Just pragmatism.
