Turkey's Erdogan Accuses Moscow of Fresh Airspace Violation

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan Kremlin Press Service

Turkish President Recep Erdogan has claimed that Russian military airplanes entered his country's airspace, according to Turkey's Hurriet newspaper, the Interfax news agency reported Wednesday.

Erdogan made this announcement during a speech in Ankara on Wednesday, the newspaper said.

Ankara in January claimed that a Russian Su-24 bomber violated Turkish airspace and warned Moscow that there would be “consequences.” Russia's Defense Ministry rejected the accusations.

Relations between Russia and Turkey deteriorated in November when a Turkish fighter jet shot down a Russian Su-24 warplane after it allegedly violated Turkish airspace.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
