Dr. Mohammed T. Bani Salameh, Dr. Ahed A.Mashagbeh

The study aimed to identify the areas of American-Russian rivalry in the Middle East and the Arab region, and focused on the most important spheres of Russian influence that Russia sought to preserve under American hegemony. The study used the method of system analysis in international relations for its relevance to the subject of the study.
