Abstract: Russia and Algeria, almost alone, stood by the side of the “unpopular” Bashar El Assad’s regime. The paper discloses the causes behind this stance. The study begins with a survey of the Russian and Algerian foreign policy. Next, follow separate statements of the causes that led Algeria and Russia to take the stand they did. Then, the paper argues that both countries reject foreign interference and support state sovereignty. Both countries suffered terribly from terrorism.

Keywords: Russia, Algeria, political causes, backing, syrian government.
