#1 Here's how it works: The SSA accepted that the SDF was part of it. Therefore Turkey did not cross the Kurdish border rather it crossed the normal border of the Syrian State. Russia supports the territorial integrity of their ally the Nation of Syria. Russia doesn't need to support or not support elements of the Syrian regime so it's no change in Russia's position. Syria's army the SAA now considers itself at war with the Turkish invader who has crossed it's world recognized international border with Turkey. Russia will continue to support it's ally Syria.

#8 Is it too much to hope that Turkey will be stupid and accidentally hit the Russians and piss off Vlad? At this point, I'd enjoy seeing someone stomp the life out of Turkey.

#15 Is it too much to hope that Turkey will be stupid and accidentally hit the Russians and piss off Vlad?

I seem to recall that Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet some months ago, and the only response was something like a cold Russian shoulder for six months. But at that point Syria wasn‘t ready to pivot to a new battlefront.
