This paper discusses the effect that is being put upon the major states of the Middle East such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Libya, Turkey and their affairs and policies by the actions of the US and Russia. It begins with the historical background of the involvement of these 'superpowers' in the region since 1945 in order to understand the changing roles US and Russia. The troublesome times during the Arab Spring mark the starting point for this thesis because the Arab revolutions have radically changed the situation not only in the Middle East, but around the world. Furthermore for the past decade, the Russian and American involvement in the region of the Middle East started to resemble the continuation of the Cold War when major powers assert their superiority by participating in an indirect conflicts and contradictions.
