Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has suggested that Russia “expects apology, explanations of reasons of the incident and payment of compensation for the downed jet and also compensation to the family of the killed pilot,” if Turkey wanted normalized relations.

He also highlighted that Turkey has taken “no steps” yet towards acknowledging its “aggressive and treacherous acts.”

Peskov’s statements came a day after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Russia and Turkey should improve bilateral ties.

Erdogan also suggested the Russian pilot was at fault for repeatedly violating Turkish airspace, an allegation that Russia denies.

There are others anti-russian moves which were taken by Gollum and there were again missiles smurggled into Syria through Turkey in the las days…
I have serious doubts about Gollum tempering down : Smeagol seem really too long gone, there are serious insanity symptoms in all his behaviour and these symptoms have increased… I think it’s time to make him meet a psy who’ll declare that he can’t cope anymore with his functions…

Well, in fact, the turkish republic hasn’t ‘really’ to appologize for the crimes of the Ottoman empire under the rule of the infamous never Pasha and his triumvirat, it’s a little like if the Bundesrepublik appologizes for the nazi’s crimes. There weren’t 6M armenians assassinated in ‘Enverland’ but the motherfuckers slaughtered 1.5/1.7M of ’em, 500/750k assyrians and about 500k greeks. Add to that the fact their coup d’état launched the 1912-13 Balkans wars (220k dead) and then the alliance they put on with the German empire pushed the Ottoman empire into WWI (5M dead turks). Anyway, what would you wait… Read more »
