Turkey opens the way for refugees to Europe in connection with the situation in Idlib

Turkey opens the way for refugees to Europe in connection with the situation in Idlib

Turkish authorities may provoke a new wave of migration crisis in Europe. This will happen if Ankara opens a corridor for refugees from the war-torn Idlib to European countries.


This was reported yesterday by Reuters news agency, referring to the words of an anonymous Turkish official.

A source said today that Turkish border guards, police and coast guards have already opened the way for Syrian refugees towards the EU. The authorities are looking through their fingers at refugees from Syrian Idlib who wish to cross Turkey to Europe by land or sea.

The last four years, thanks to Ankara, the most acute migration crisis since the Second World War has not become even more acute. It was Turkey that all this time played the role of a filter and a restraining barrier for millions of refugees from the Middle East who sought to enter European countries. This was constantly said by Recep Erdogan.



At the moment, Europe has not commented on the Turkish decision.

Previously, information appeared about dozens of casualties among Turkish soldiers. According to preliminary data, 33 Turkish soldiers were killed. Regarding this, Recep Tayyip Erdogan demanded that the Ministry of Defense convene an emergency meeting.

Before that, he stated that he would begin a large-scale military operation if Syria did not withdraw its troops from the line of Turkish observation posts in Idlib. As VO reported in one of News, the head of the Turkish Ministry of Defense Hulusi Akar took over the operation.

        So offer Europe to send us. To each in the Far Eastern hectare, without the right to leave until citizenship is completed after eleven years, with loyalty conditions and so on. And the dreams of all sides will come true, with one shot, not two, but five hares at once.

          Better not a hectare in the Far East, but Chukchi weaving, Koryak tithe, Taimyr acre, etc.
          There are so many places, sincere that not only refugees from Syria, but also China and India will be accommodated and there will still be places until fig.

        Edik wants to organize an Idlib meeting in Istanbul on March 5 with the participation of Germany, France and Russia, but so far no one has confirmed his participation.

We stand on the side of Cyprus" - German State Minister for Europe at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Michael Mouth. And about refugees, there were problems with the EU before that: “We are fulfilling the agreement and accepting the expelled refugees. And what about the EU? The EU promised us to pay 3 billion euros at the end of 2016, and another 3 billion at the end of 2018. The year is already 2020, and we have not yet received the first 3 billion, ”Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

      The EU yesterday imposed new sanctions against Turkey because of the Sonjays in Cyprus. Maybe someone will be pressed and maybe someone will close their borders tightly. Like the Hungarians.
      Bulgaria yesterday pulled new gendarmerie forces to the border with Turkey, and the army is ready to help people and equipment. Two groups of "refugees" turned back to Turkey yesterday.

          "Not in tourist places" there at all, it is better not to go. He’s visited. I saw .. Another 20 years and nothing will remain of Europe. Some Muslims. And most importantly, youth - 50 percent - are clearly not European features. Blacks, Muslims. Add to this the craving of Europeans for same-sex marriages, (degeneration) "tolerance" for refugees and the result will not be very comforting. At the same time, I am an objective and cynical person. Therefore, even if they continue, they degenerate. This is their own business. And we take a look .....

    It was Turkey that all this time played the role of a filter and a containment barrier for millions of refugees from the Middle East who were eager to get into European countries. This was constantly said by Recep Erdogan.
    If I’m not mistaken, the Europeans paid him good money for this with "living" money. Most likely, in this way Erdogan is trying to force the European NATO allies to support him in connection with the situation in Idlib. On the other hand, having rid himself of some refugees, Erdogan may well allow himself to accept others. From Idlib. After all, Ankara’s official concern is precisely the suffering of the civilian population of Idlib, and it is precisely because of this that they faced the need for a military clash with the SAA.

            Lavrov, I think, only "For". Migrants are an opportunity to "play" Europe, not only for Erdogan, but also for Russia. And even if Europe at the moment goes “in the wake” of Erdogan, it still will not forget it. And not forgive. So, the Lavrov’s department can only welcome migrants to Europe in this case. Naturally, verbally expressing the familiar "concern".

        There is no need to do this.

        So far, the German Ministry of Health is trying to delay the wave of coronavirus diseases as late as possible (in the summer), since now there is a seasonal illness with ordinary flu.
        And without that, hospitals and praxis work tirelessly.

        it is forecasted to receive the approved vaccine by the end or beginning of next year.
        The Ministry of Emergency Situations posted on the Internet a reminder that the population should have stocks of food and essentials for (preferably) ten days.
        In grocery stores posted specially in large quantities:
        salt, canned food, sugar, flour. (the last two products are taken apart quickly, the stew also goes away with a bang). In principle, the state did the right thing, reminding residents of the need to have supplies for everyone and put them in stores.

        In general, based on indirect evidence, we can conclude that "we are on the verge of a large hedgehog"

        Not to refugees now in Germany.

      We learned not to put eggs in one basket and negotiate even with geopolitical opponents.
      Now Erdogan is waltzing very carefully, trying with all his might not to step on the RF foot.
      He claims not only laurels of military success, but also economic.
      Without this, the government will not last long.

      There is no mistake here. There was an opportunity to use Turkey in their interests - they took advantage of this opportunity. The states saw how the Turks could be used to their advantage - they also took advantage. The Turks saw what can be obtained from both at this particular moment - they also did not “click with a beak”. This is politics. Everyone acts solely on the basis of their own interests and capabilities. And each such action meets either support or opposition from all interested parties. No one sits idly and does not wait until the competitor brings to the logical end what he has planned.

    Erdogan realized that in the war against Syria all the old Europeans would not support him.
    And his attempt at blackmail is to open the gate to the EU for refugees from Idlib, this is a rat hysteria in the corner. Everyone understands that if it is supported in the war against Syria, then the flow of refugees from Syria will be many times greater. The US is also in no hurry to support it, so as not to break off relations with the EU. In short, Erdogan is hinted that NATO’s 5th article will not openly work.

      In Switzerland, they are not allowed to settle - or pay 1500 EUR per month for a stay or go further. Thus, only programmers or doctors with a license to work in Europe remain there. As well as holders of accounts in Swiss banks. Price qualification.

But the Austrians and Dans and Norgs showed their teeth. it is from rich countries. and those that are worse than Hungary and Slovakia do not want to hear anything about refugees

    In Switzerland, they are not allowed to settle - or pay 1500 EUR per month for a stay or go further. Thus, only programmers or doctors with a license to work in Europe remain there. As well as holders of accounts in Swiss banks. Price qualification.

    I know Switzerland here is like a splinter in one place "neutral" only when it is beneficial to them. Arrogant people, behave arrogantly. It was necessary for the Germans at the time to occupy not Poland but Switzerland

    Turkey attacked Syria, blackmails the European Union, threatens the war of Russia. Star-striped ears too clearly began to appear behind Comrade. the sultan. In the nineteenth century, the British deceived the Turks by engaging in adventurous wars with Russia, and in the twenty-first century (these Turks still moved one wand, but the Turks still live in the year before last), the Americans want to make the Turks hostage to their senility.

    It seems that Erdogan is being dragged to the war by forces desiring his defeat, regime change, the same forces are removing Turkish soldiers from command control under strikes, pushing refugees into the war, then Erdogan is depriving his enemies of a resource.

    Turkey is eager for regional domination. For this, all goals are good. Short-term alliances, blackmail, betrayal, war. Just how far will it lead Erdogan and Turkey itself

    And even if Europe at the moment goes “in the wake” of Erdogan, it still will not forget it.

    Something you can’t believe that she will not forget. But surely they will not forget how America bends them?

    They can’t cope with the refugees, so why didn’t they send them before, what did they take then? It’s normal to support terrorists with their war in Syria, but to accept refugees as soon as something is not right.

    All the same, it was a big mistake for Russia to build a Turkish stream, a nuclear power plant, and the sale of S-400. The work of effective managers?

    This is a great victory and strategic conquest, which now plays on Russia in fact, and not on Turkey. You simply do not have enough analytical skills to understand this. Well, calm down, each has its own business.

    In response to the opening of borders towards Europe, Europe will close the borders towards Turkey. And the funeral of this Satan Pasha will be immediate. NATO will consider this an aggression against it.

    So offer Europe to send us. To each in the Far Eastern hectare, without the right to leave until citizenship is completed after eleven years, with loyalty conditions and so on. And the dreams of all sides will come true, with one shot, not two, but five hares at once.

    They will make us work, and not sit on the neck laughing

    The Black Sea is not Middle-earth. There are evil Russian sailors on boats. And if that, then jobs at the mines will be enough for many. They will not feed anyone in Russia for nothing. laughing Arabs are even closer (and much richer than the same Europe, by the way), but refugees do not flee either to them or to Russia. Because they will not feed there, and they will even force me to work. Even the French commentators were smarter than you:

    - The Syrians are Arabs, therefore it is the rich countries of the Arabian Peninsula that should accept the Syrian "brothers" .. Europe has nothing to do with it! and let us be left alone .. laughing

    It’s just that Turkey was never needed in Old Europe. Only as a gasket for spill control. And no one was ever planning to take her seriously to the EU. Hence such a reaction.

    And there are comments and worse:

    “We must kill them as soon as we cross the border.” Otherwise, they will kill us.

    - Blast this pig [Erdogan].

    “When do we slam his mouth?”

    - The solution is simple: deportation of two Turks for each migrant arriving from this country.
