MOSCOW: Russia plans to retaliate against Turkey for the downing of a warplane by imposing sanctions, cutting economic ties and scrapping major investment projects.
Since the plane was shot down Tuesday in disputed circumstances on the Syria-Turkey border, Russia has already restricted tourism, left Turkish trucks stranded at the border and announced the confiscation of large quantities of Turkish food imports.
On Thursday, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered his government to also draft sanctions against Turkey within the next two days in response to the downing of the Russian Su-24, which he described as an ``act of aggression against our country.''
Welcome move by Russia as it is becoming clear that Turkey is applying double standards against terrorism and in fact quite openly backing the ISIS.
Turkey has stabbed from the back and is not fit for the submit they are organizing now
and all we do is Not play Cricket
India should support its time tested ally, Russia
US is trying to act smart by defending Turkey, let the same happen to it and it will call for a world war..

What was Turkey trying to Prove? It will be Stupid of NATO to back Turkey
Turkey has the right to defend it's territory.Well done turkey gud job
All tourism to Turkey should stop. It's for your own good and safety
Russia did a excellent job of installing the S 400 missile in Syria. This is far more smarter than the Patriots and is really feared by NATO
Turkey is at fault. It should say sorry for the mistake. The Russians will forgive.
Russia should also attack Turkey or at the least cause colateral damage. Anything less than that is spineless.
