Turkey accuses Russia of new airspace violation
ANKARA: Turkey on Saturday accused Russia of a fresh violation of its airspace, warning Moscow it would “face consequences” as relations between the two countries hit a new post-Cold War low.
The Turkish foreign ministry said a Russian Su-34 plane violated Turkish airspace at 0946 GMT today despite repeated warnings from Turkish air radar units in Russian and English.
The Russian defence ministry dismissed the claim as “baseless propaganda”.
Ties between Ankara and Moscow plummeted after Turkey, a key NATO member, shot down a Russian fighter jet on the Syrian border in November, sparking a war of words with Russia which insisted its plane had not crossed into Turkish airspace.
Turkey is resorting to adventurism again. It has forgotten the earlier incident.
Shoot if you dare this time

Turkey can afford to irritate Russia as it knows the Russians cannot take on nato.
And this time Turkey was afraid of S-400. Ha ha.

Mr. Putin should tame his army. Turkey is a weak state but its also a NATO member. Russians can’t bear the wrath of USA and Allies 🙂
