Turkish politician calls US and Israel a threat to Turkey, and S-400 a strategic asset

14

Turkish media cite statements by the leader of the Vatan party (Rodina) Dogu Perinchek, who commented on the statements of several Turkish politicians about the Russian S-400 air defense systems. This is primarily about the statements of the opposition Turkish circles, actively involved in the process of criticizing the acquisition of anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia. In particular, it was stated that “with these funds, Turkey could improve the health care system and acquire remedies during the epidemic.”


Opposition:

Why are they (S-400 air defense systems) generally needed if they are not activated. They will turn into scrap metal for $ 2,5 billion.

Dogu Perincek called such statements populism of pure water. Channel "Bursa" quotes his words that he is closely watching the discussion of the purchase and deployment of S-400 in Turkey.

The politician noted that the development of any areas in the country is impossible without increasing the level of security.

Perincek:

In a country where there is no security, there can be no economy. And if we fail in the Eastern Mediterranean, south of our borders, all our security will collapse along with the resources spent.

The head of the Rodina Turkish party said that Ankara acquired the S-400 air defense system from Russia after well-known events related to the attempted coup.

Turkish politician:

But the threat to us comes not only from American forces, but also from Israel east of the Euphrates. There is a threat in the east of the Mediterranean Sea. USA, Israel, Greece, South Cyprus - they have united and conduct military exercises against us.

Dogu Perinchek added that there are countries that impede the implementation of the agreement as part of the operation of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline in the Black Sea region.

Politician:

Wherever we look, we see the American and Israeli threats. Therefore, the S-400 is our strategic asset.

    "The beginning of the war against Syria is a trap into which the USA and Israel are luring Turkey" ... Dogu Perincek.

    Never supported the sale of S-400 to the Turks. Of course, they are not our enemies, but they are not friends, and they may well deploy these complexes against us. Alas, the pursuit of profit is ours. And so, Turkish politicians use the S-400 for self-PR - someone is against someone in favor, but the main thing is to draw public attention to your person. And nobody cares that the money has been paid, the deal is closed and there is no turning back.

    Due to the quarrelsome nature of the Turks, only Kitak and Qatar remained their friends. Although I'm not sure about China.

    statements by opposition Turkish circles that have actively engaged in criticizing the acquisition of anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia. In particular, it was stated that “with these funds, Turkey could improve the health care system and acquire remedies during the epidemic.”
    How familiar is that ..
    Turkish politician:

    But the threat to us comes not only from American forces, but also from Israel east of the Euphrates. There is a threat in the east of the Mediterranean Sea. USA, Israel, Greece, South Cyprus - they have united and conduct military exercises against us.
    In fairness, and this too .. Conclusion is a common domestic political squabble. Whose point of view wins, for us it is violet - the money has been paid, the contract has been executed. And if a miracle happens and the Turks abandon the complex - there is also no reason to be upset.

    The chairman of the dispersed party, nearly thundered for life (117 years), organized a new left-nationalist party of 22 thousand members, which is simply nothing for 83 million people.
    Party ideology:
    In his program documents, he combines Maoist rhetoric and left-wing populism with an appeal to the ideas of Kemalism. The party considers “scientific socialism” to be the basis of its program, but at the same time, the party’s ideology also contains elements of Kemalist-type nationalism — more so than other Turkish left parties. The party considers the founder of the modern Turkish state, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, “a left-wing bourgeois-democratic revolutionary,” and considers his legacy as one of the landmarks, along with the ideas of Lenin, Mao Zedong and Fidel Castro.

    Here is such a batch!
    Vladimir Volfovich is resting.
    At the same time, Perincek defines modern "Pro-Western and pro-American"(!) Turkish politics as the main reasons for the decline of Kemalism and, accordingly, the secular and social Turkish national state.
    Of course, in the absence of another politician who said something about the S-400 air defense system, one can refer to this, but to inflate these flies to the state of an elephant will not be easy and very funny.

    “With these funds, Turkey could improve the health care system and acquire remedies during the epidemic.”
    The Russian opposition is groaning one-on-one with the Turkish one, only to change the name of the country. Additional confirmation that the opposition is being fed from one pelvis with the "proud" name of the United States.

    Yes, I said, first of all to them the S-400 - in order to cover up oil production near Cyprus. The Greeks immediately ceased to be the same as the S-400 appeared
