In the incident with Russian su-24 Ankara finally dropped the mask. Turkey - allegations that Russian aircraft violated the airspace of power, and the convening of the NATO Council - look like an attempt to put NATO in the service of the "Islamic state" (is prohibited in the Russian Federation terrorist group).
The Turks, apparently, had decided that the proceeds from the sale of supply the "is" of oil is more important relationship with Moscow.
Backstab Russia, caused by the accomplices of the terrorists. So has described the incident with Russian su-24, Russian President Vladimir Putin. Downed Turkish air force bomber is not a danger for Turkey. And Ankara's next steps - the claims that Russian aircraft violated the airspace of Turkey, and the convening of the NATO Council - look like an attempt to put NATO in the service of the "Islamic state" (is prohibited in the Russian Federation terrorist group), said Russian favorite.
If the day before someone had any doubts about the route of Russian aircraft, announced on November 25 expertise them irrevocably dispelled. Analysis of thermal track of a su-24 approved: bomber was flying over Syrian territory at least one kilometer from the Turkish border.
"Anyway, our pilots, our aircraft in no way threatened the Republic of Turkey. It is an undeniable thing. They have conducted operations against the "Islamic state", - Putin said. The Russian President warned that this tragic event will have the most substantial consequences for Russian-Turkish relations.
But Ankara, apparently, decided that the profits from the sale of supply the "is" of oil is more important relationship with Moscow. The President and the Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Erdogan and Ahmet Davutoglu, in 1 voice announced that shoot down domestic aircraft near the border - "right and duty" of Ankara. Extremely logical and explained this concern about the future of the Syrian people.
Although everyone understands what care, first, Turkish politicians. Moscow has long watching this with captured militants territories in Syria to Turkey-a flow of oil, said Vladimir Putin.
"If the "is" such cash - and the bill goes to the 10's, hundreds of millions, maybe billions of dollars through trade in oil, plus they have the protection of armed forces of entire countries, then wonder why they act so boldly and brazenly, why they sacrificed people to the most savage method, why they commit acts of terrorism around the world, even in the heart of Europe", - said Russian President.
And said Russian favorite about aiding Turkey to terrorists there is a lot of evidence. Methods of protection of the border with Syria during Syrian conflict, Turkey has revised dramatically. If the Syrian - and now domestic aircraft - Turkish air force shot down, fighters wishing to join the ranks of the Islamic state special obstacles here do not meet. And weapons crossed the border unhindered. Not so long ago it became known that the inhabitants of Kuwait bought arms in Ukraine and sent its militants to Syria - of course, through Turkey. Ankara itself recognized the supply of weapons to Syria - as announced by Davutoglu-friendly "Turkmens" (which is just the area at the Turkish border).
The reaction of the allies of Turkey in NATO, too, recalled the scene "piercing the veils". Ankara there are some who really was beaten up a bit - but officially supported. The NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has literally repeated the statement by Davutoglu that Turkey "in its own right". And the state Department of the United States he also added: that the Turkmen who killed Russian catapult pilot and blew up sent to the aid of the helicopter, just defended. On specifying question of the correspondent about, whether it is possible to consider self-defense in shooting the unarmed pilots, who ejected with a parachute, an adept of the state Department replied that "there is no exact understanding of what in reality happened."
Made from Washington statements commented an official dealer of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova: "Remember these words. Will forever remember. And I will never forget. I promise."
