Turkey’s Erdogan Accuses Moscow of Fresh Airspace Violation

Kremlin Press ServiceTurkish President Tayyip Erdogan

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.
