The Russian foreign Minister has been in Qatar as part of efforts to find a common ground in the Gulf crisis. Sergey Lavrov has already visited the UAE and Kuwait this week and arrived in Doha on Wednesday.

Lavrov is the highest ranking Russian official to come to the Gulf since the crisis began.

He says Russia fully supports the Emir of Kuwait’s efforts to bring an end to the blockade that began on June 5th.

But what can Russia do to help end the blockade?
