Vladimir Putin escalated his confrontation with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over the downing of a Russian bomber, saying relations are beyond repair while declaring Syria a no-fly zone for Turkish military aircraft.
“Turkey used to violate Syrian airspace all the time,” Putin told reporters. With Russia’s deployment of the S-400 anti-aircraft system “Let them try and fly there now.” Russia’s most advanced air-defense system now covers the whole of Syria
Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mevlüt Cavusoglu, has boasted on Turkish television that Russia should be very scared and wary of Turkey because they can occupy the country in seven days.
Will NATO, in which Turkey regrettably is a member, go along with this insanity?
