YEKATERINBURG, November 25. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday that Turkeys actions to down the Russian Air Force Sukhoi Su-24 plane in Syria were criminal. The prime minister commented to reporters on the events on arrival in Yekaterinburg, after a many-day tour of Southeast Asia.

"The recklessly criminal actions of the Turkish authorities that downed Russias aircraft have three consequences," he said. "First its the dangerous worsening of relations between Russia and NATO, which cannot be justified by any interests, including protection of the state borders. Second Turkey has demonstrated by its actions, in fact, the protection of the militants of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group. That is not surprising, taking into account the available information about the direct financial interest of some Turkish officials linked with the supply of petroleum products produced at enterprises held by IS."

"And third, the longstanding good-neighborly relations between Russia and Turkey, including in the economy and humanitarian spheres have been undermined," Medvedev said. "This damage will be difficult to repair its direct consequence may be the cessation of a number of important joint projects and the loss by Turkish companies of their positions on the Russian market."

Moscow expects Turkey's statement on attitude towards people that killed Russian pilot

November 26, 16:33 UTC+3

The Russian Foreign Ministry has grounds to believe the United States knows people who danced around the body of the killed Russian pilot

MOSCOW, November 26 /TASS/. Turkey is using all available methods to protect armed criminals, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.

"We assume that Ankara does not care for the fate of civilians but is concerned with the future of those whose faces everybody had a chance to see in a footage distributed by the world media after the Turkish Air Force had downed the Russian jet," the Russian diplomat went on to say.

"The people whom Ankara is trying to protect by using all available methods, some of which are criminal, have got nothing to do with peaceful civilians. We are talking about armed cutthroats who shot a Russian pilot and then mocked at his dead body," Zakharova stressed.

According to the spokeswoman, Russia is expecting statements from Turkey on what Ankaras attitude is toward people who mocked the body of a killed Russian pilot.

"If these are not people Ankara protects, then we are expecting relevant denials from Turkeys official structures," Zakharova said. "We are expecting explanations."

The diplomat stressed that Moscow has all grounds to believe the United States knows people who danced around the body of the killed Russian pilot.

The ministry considers comments by US State Department on linking fate of catapulted Russian pilot with right to self-defense wild.

Zakharova pointed out that Turkish fighters made no attempts to establish contact with Russias Sukhoi-24 frontline bomber, downed over Syria.

"No attempts by the Turkish plane to contact the crew of our plane were registered by objective monitoring means," she said.

She said NATO has given Turkey an indulgency to actions that are threatening global peace and security.

"NATOs position is causing total rejection. The alliance has apparently yielded to Turkeys pressure," Zakharova said. "NATO has used the idea of notorious allied solidarity as a cover to give an indulgency to Turkey and other NATO members to any unlawful actions, which are not just undermining international efforts to fight the Islamic State (the terrorist group is banned in Russia) but are creating a direct threat to global peace and security," the Russian diplomat said.

The official also dwelled upon the upcoming meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council . According to the spokeswoman, the meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council in Belgrade on December 3-4 will discuss the fight against terrorism.

"The upcoming ministerial meeting will take place against the background of the terrorism wave that has already reached and practically flooded Europe and not only Europe but the neighboring regions," Zakharova told reporters.

"The ministers of the OSCE member-states are expected to discuss the origin of terrorism and the need of uniting efforts in the fight against this evil."

The diplomat stressed: "We expect an open and what is very important a depoliticized dialogue."

'Erdogan's Family Trace in Su-24 Downing': Revenge for Ruining Oil Deals?

09:33 27.11.2015(updated 11:51 27.11.2015)

The shooting down of the Russian Su-24 bomber over Syrian territory earlier this week could well be President Erdogan's act of revenge, especially considering that his family is rumored to be involved in ISIL's illegal oil trade, Stanislav Tarasov, an expert on Middle East, told Radio Sputnik.

The downing of the aircraft is "a severe provocation. Erdogan's family is directly involved in the incident. Quite possibly, the Su-24 crash was an act of revenge," the analyst noted.

The radical group has been making up to $2 million daily from selling stolen petroleum to middlemen in Turkey. On Thursday, Russian Prime Minster Dmitry Medvedev mentioned that some Turkish officials are involved in ISIL's illegal business. He did not provide specific names.

A Turkish F-16 shot down the Su-24 on Tuesday, claiming that the aircraft violated its airspace. Russian officials and the Su-24 pilot, who survived the crash, insist that the plane did not cross into Turkey. The crew, according to the pilot, did not receive any warning prior to the attack.

The Su-24 was involved in Moscow's anti-ISIL efforts in Syria aimed among other things at undermining the group's economic base, including its oil trade. Militants are said to be losing $1.5 million daily since Russian forces started hitting oil tankers and refinery facilities.

Tarasov also assumed that the Turkish president could have direct ties to Islamists.

"Turkey was recently rocked by a major corruption scandal. We could soon learn that President Erdogan himself is directly linked to ISIL. Erdogan is constantly keeping the Turkish society on edge. The Turks are always fighting against domestic and foreign enemies. This has led to Erdogan severing ties with many countries," the analyst observed.

Erdogan, according to Tarasov, is increasingly becoming the "enemy No. 1" in the Middle East. The downing of a Russian bomber will only reinforce this trend.

The Su-24 crash "will affect the regional balance of power. Erdogan is gradually becoming isolated. Many view him as a corrupt official and a dictator. Turkey is turning into a destabilizing force in the Middle East," the analyst asserted.

However, the Turkish society does not want to lose a partner like Russia. Many, according to Tarasov, count on Moscow to help Turkey maintain its territorial integrity due to the country's proximity to the area of instability.

Erdogan Downed Su-24 to Revenge Son's Disrupted Oil Business - Damascus

http://cdn3.img.sputniknews.com/images/103072/26/1030722689.jpg

11:51 27.11.2015(updated 14:12 27.11.2015

Turkey shot down Russia's bomber as revenge for the destruction of oil smuggling business that belongs to Recep Tayyip Erdogan's son, a Syrian minister stated.

DAMASCUS (Sputnik) Turkey downed the Russian Su-24 Fencer bomber over Syria in response to the destruction of hundreds of semi-truck oil tankers sent to Turkey from Syria by the Islamic State, Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said.

The information minister said that oil smuggled into Turkey was bought by the Turkish presidents son, who owns an oil company.

All of the oil was delivered to a company that belongs to the son of Recep [Tayyip] Erdogan. This is why Turkey became anxious when Russia began delivering airstrikes against the IS infrastructure and destroyed more than 500 trucks with oil already. This really got on Erdogan and his companys nerves. Theyre importing not only oil, but wheat and historic artefacts as well, al-Zoubi told RIA Novosti in an interview.

The fact of the attack on the [Russian] plane in Syrian airspace without any warning, as the surviving Russian [co-]pilot reported, confirms once again that Turkey is lying, the information minister said.

On Tuesday, a Turkish Air Force F-16 downed the Russian bomber 4 kilometers from the Turkish border. Both the Russian General Staff and the Syrian Air Defense Command confirmed that the Su-24 never crossed into Turkish airspace and was shot down over Syrian territory, citing precise objective control data.

Russian President Vladimir Putin described the incident as a "stab in the back, carried out against us by accomplices of terrorists."

One of the two Su-24 pilots was killed by fire from the ground after ejecting from the plane. The second pilot was rescued in a 12-hour-long operation.

Russia has been carrying out an aerial campaign against the Islamic State jihadist group in Syria since late September at the request of Damascus. Moscow has repeatedly called on the UN Security Council to take extra steps to determine who was buying oil from the militants.

Syria has repeatedly accused Turkey, as well as several Gulf states, of funding ISIL.

Turkey arrests two journalists on terrorism charges: CNN Turk

Thu Nov 26, 2015 4:08pm EST

Two prominent Turkish journalists were arrested on Thursday on charges of assisting terrorists, CNN Turk said, after they published footage that purported to show the state intelligence agency helping send weapons to Syria.

A Turkish court ordered the arrest of the editor-in-chief of Cumhuriyet, Can Dundar, and the newspaper's Ankara correspondent, Erdem Gul, the television channel said.

Turkish media reports said that the two faced a number of charges including membership of an armed terrorist organization and the publishing of material in violation of state security following the release of the footage in May.

Reuters was not immediately able to verify the reports.

The video, purporting to show Turkish police opening crates of weapons and ammunition bound for Syria on the back of state security agency trucks, prompted President Tayyip Erdogan to vow revenge, saying he would not forgive such reporting.

European diplomats are measured in their criticism of media freedom in Turkey and Erdogan's increasingly authoritarian rule, recognizing the West needs Ankara's help on the migrant crisis and as an ally in the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State.

Europe is hoping to finalize a deal with Ankara - a NATO member and a candidate for EU membership - on the refugee crisis at a summit this weekend.
