Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday said that Turkey has backstabbed Russia by downing its warplane along the Syrian border and acted as accomplices of the terrorists.
“This incident stands out against the usual fight against terrorism. Our troops are fighting heroically against terrorists, risking their lives. But the loss we suffered today came from a stab in the back delivered by accomplices of the terrorists,” Putin said.
Turkey confirmed that it shot down a Russian warplane, claiming it had violated Turkish airspace and ignored repeated warnings. Russia denied that the plane crossed the Syrian border into Turkish skies. Russian Plane"We are looking into the circumstances of the crash of the Russian jet," Russia's Defence Ministry said. "The Ministry of Defence would like to stress that the plane was over the Syrian territory throughout the flight." Russia said the Su-24 was downed by artillery fire, but Turkey claimed that its F-16s fired on the Russian plane after it ignored several warnings. The ministry said the pilots parachuted but added that Moscow had no further contact with them. Reports said that one pilot was has been captured by Syrian rebels. Video footage of the incident showed a warplane on fire before crashing on a hill and two crew members apparently parachuting safely. A Turkish military statement said the plane entered Turkish airspace over town of Yaylidag, in Hatay province. It said the plane was warned 10 times within the space of 5 minutes. Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said the warplane crashed in the Turkmen Mountains region in the coastal province of Latakia. The Turkomen Mountains region has been subjected to a government offensive in recent days under the cover of Russian airstrikes. Last month, Turkish jets shot down an unidentified drone that it said had violated Turkey's airspace.
