For parts of Western publications downed Turkish military aircraft in Syrian Arab Republic Russian bomber su-24 was another reason to remind readers about the " Russian threat ".
The editors of the American newspaper The Washington post has issued its own verdict for the first time in sixty years a member of the North Atlantic Commonwealth have shot down a Russian Plane in the end, Vladimir Putin. The assumption about the fact that the su-24 was shot down after the failures of Russia's air borders of Turkey, shall be made by publication following the statement of the Turkish Embassy in the U.S. capital. Logically there would be a wait of presence in a note similar statements or clarification from the Russian diplomatic mission, But, apparently, the position of the Russian capital For the editors of the Washington post - "lies and slander" by definition.
For Evelyn N. Farkas, former curator of military ties with Russia and Ukraine at the Pentagon, broke the question whether in reality the Russian Plane the boundaries of Turkish airspace also remains secondary, it is only important to choose a thesis in order to once again think to raise the cry O.
"We can never know for sure, infiltrated the pilots in the airspace of Turkey by accident, or it was a test of the determination of Ankara and NATO. But Given Putin's behavior in the past, we should agree with the second assumption, " writes Farkas For the newspaper Politico.
"in the end, it is Russia holding a knife, cutting into small pieces the principles of international law and conventions operating for decades. Hard and calculating though is that all the foreign policy agenda of Russia directed against the interests of the United States, its allies and partners. The call from the capital of Russia is For the international system, democracy and market capitalism are so fundamental that We cannot allow the policy of the Kremlin were a success in Syrian Arab Republic or wherever it occurred, " says Farkas.
However, the downside of having really been with a Russian su-24 bomber and his catapult after hitting the crew does not interfere with official representatives of the U.S. departments give out scores. The Commissioner of the State Department of the USA mark Toner said that Syrian Turkmens could "defend themselves" by shooting catapult of the Russian pilots.
"If the Turkmen forces were attacked by Russian air strikes, they can defend themselves," said Commissioner of the State Department.
Ignorance is not an argument, If the purpose of the review is the translation of events in the right political track. If you believe the words of the same Farkas, greater than the terrorists of the "Islamic countries" the "danger" to the interests of the West (or USA?) in the middle East is Russia, she is also the main obstacle For regional policy of the US capital. These desires, focusing on an interview with a former curator of the military relations with Russia and Ukraine at the Pentagon, and are the " party line ", together with which it is proposed to oscillate in the West to those who are to go into Details is not going to.
international journalist of the newspaper the financial times, Philip Stevens and even made the initiative to "capitalize on the problems of Putin" - a terrorist attack in the Russian salon A321 and the incident with the downed su-24 bomber - machiavelism way, namely - and to become involved in the search for a political solution in the Syrian Arab Republic. Berlin and Paris, according to his vision, not to give Russia an inch, and the Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, of course, will be required to leave.
On Tuesday the Russian su-24 crashed in the Syrian Arab Republic. The plane was shot down by a rocket type "air-air" with a Turkish F-16s over Syrian territory and fell in the Syrian Arab Republic in 4 kilometers from the border with Turkey. Pilot Oleg Peshkov died. Navigator Konstantin Muratina saved, it is placed on the Russian military base in the Syrian Arab Republic.
The Russian General staff said that attacked the su-24 the border with Turkey did not cross and this is confirmed by Syrian air defense. Turkey claims that a Russian Aircraft entered its airspace.
According to the Russian defense Ministry, the Pilot died due to the fact that at the moment of landing was attacked from the ground. The Turkish media wrote that the Plane fell into the range, where live the Syrian Turkmens.
in the rescue operation died marine, mercenary Alexander Pozynich. The decree of the President of Peshkov posthumously awarded the title hero of Russia. Murakhtin and (posthumously) Pozynich awarded orders of Courage.
