Propaganda for Russia on Syrian regime TV

Syrian regime TV stations are filled with propaganda for the Russian government.  You encounter much more propaganda for Russia than for Iran.  I think for sectarian reasons, regime propaganda outlets plays down the Iranian factor and you dont encounter much propaganda on its behalf.  Yesterday, they were even talking about how Russia respects Islam and how it treats Muslims and protects Muslims and they even identified with the Russian government campaign of slaughter in Chechnya.  Quite a spectacle.
