Erdogan allowed militants to shoot down Russian planes


The President of Turkey gave the green light to the destruction of Russian planes and helicopters.

Active promotion of the Syrian army to liberate the provinces of Idlib and Aleppo led to the fact that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan allowed pro-Turkish terrorists who are members of an al-Qaeda branch of the organization (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation - approx. Ed.) air defense systems transferred earlier not only against Syrian, but also against Russian aviation.

“A military source told Russian Spring that the other day, intelligence agencies had operational information about Ankara’s intention to supply portable anti-aircraft missile systems to extremist groups in Idlib province. “So, on February 15, a meeting between the commander of the Turkish military contingent in Syria, Lieutenant General Ismail Metin, and the leaders of the Jabhat al-Nusra *, Islamic Party of Turkestan and Jabhat Vatanil held a meeting on the territory controlled by Turkish militants in the Idlib de-escalation zone - said the officer. “In the course of the conversation, the Turkish general spoke about Ankara’s intention to supply the Stinger MANPADS to the militants of the ATS and the Russian Air Force,” the source said.- сообщает "Russian spring."

It should be noted that Russia is actively using its combat and reconnaissance aircraft in Syria, which is accessible for man-portable air defense systems, and therefore there are very serious risks that terrorists will really begin to attack Russian planes and helicopters over Aleppo and Idlib.
