The US Senate proposed to impose sanctions against Turkey for the use of the S-400 air defense system

44

Turkey's testing of the Russian air defense system, despite US warnings, drew condemnation from Washington. The US State Department said that such actions by Ankara contradict the allied obligations of the NATO member country.


It is reported by the Voice of America.

A little earlier, the Turkish edition of Haber informed the public about the military test firing of the S-400 air defense system on the Black Sea coast in the province of Sinop.

Pentagon spokesman Morgan Ortegus said the US defense department was dissatisfied with Ankara's behavior:

We object to the Turkish purchase of the system and are deeply concerned about reports that Turkey is putting it into operation.

GOP Senator Jim Risch stressed that the actions of the Turkish military are detrimental to NATO interests and pose a threat to the latest American F-35 aircraft and other weapons systems of the North Atlantic Alliance. And Democratic Senator Bob Menendez is calling for drastic measures:

Turkey should be immediately sanctioned for the purchase and use of this system.

Turkey has not yet officially commented on these threats coming from the US Senate.

        One comrade wrote correctly yesterday! One sold S-400 regimental kit ... crossed out 150 Turkish F-35s, just super efficiency of the air defense!
        On my own behalf, I made discord in NATO, nuclear weapons were gone from Inzherlik, and now there are also sanctions on Turkey! good

            Erdogan bought from 400 from the fatigue of waiting for the patriots, if he was dynamic with air defense, then which F35? Only in erotic dreams! Will start to take the production of components F35 will come to its senses.

          good drinks All right! You couldn't say better!
          And then just yesterday some comrades were desperately hysterical about the sale of the S-400 to Turkey: "Zrada!" "Selling national interests!", "They are ready to sell their mother for money!" etc. etc.!

          ,, Now that they are not visible ,, Interestingly, after the attempted coup which was staged by the United States, Erdogan seriously hoped to get both the Patriot and the F 35 as much as 150 pieces? Our usual blackmailer ,, partner ,,. Now he will twist the hands of Russia with the Turkish stream, beyond the nuclear power plant, we will not leave half the way!

      America somewhere records how many, what and on whom it has imposed? In order not to forget.

      At work, I sometimes flare up. Naoru, I say that tomorrow I'll fire it to hell.
      Several years ago, I instructed my secretary to keep track of whom and how many times I "fired". She thinks, and when I sign the award for the year, then the one who has too many "layoffs", I call and ask - how will we continue to live? We reset the "layoffs" or sign the last statement ...

      it depends on whom, if against the shooting control operators, then yes, they do not scare, but if they are against Erdogan's entourage, with the freezing of accounts, and even with Gullen to scare, then they may scare, although I am sure that the sultan is sure that nothing it won't be scary

      In the process, they are already more frightening than the Americans themselves, with the exception of a few, especially stubborn, senators. The mattresses themselves are beginning to realize that this tool is no longer working, and they have no other arguments for influencing, which undermines the authority of the "hegemon" even in those countries that were afraid of his shadow before.

      On the contrary, they are proud of these sanctions, as if their countries are on the right path if the United States is angry.

    It’s hard for the United States now, it’s always not happy with something. There have been no positive images lately. There’s also Iran that draws something modern to buy. No matter how "kondraty" is not enough, and then there are these elections on the nose.

    I don't know who this Sheremet is and what kind of deputy he is, but at least one person called a spade a spade:

    SIMFEROPOL, October 18 - RIA Novosti.
    Turkey with its anti-Crimean statements shows that it is an unreliable ally for Russia, the deputy from the Crimean region said.
    Earlier, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said that he does not recognize Crimea as a Russian region and intends to support the Crimean Tatars together.
    “Turkey has recently, unfortunately, shown itself to be an unreliable ally, taking an openly unfriendly position towards Russia and the Russian Crimea,” Sheremet told RIA Novosti.
    According to him, the Turkish authorities, with their disrespectful policy, risk that Russian tourists will completely stop visiting Turkish resorts.
    "Russia will live without Turkish tomatoes, but whether the Turks will be able to live without our support is still a question," the deputy said.


    ... Official Ankara did not and does not recognize the annexation of the Crimean peninsula by Russia.
    Turkey's position has remained unchanged since the beginning of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia in 2014.
    “We perceive Ukraine as a key country in terms of the security and stability of our region. And within this framework, we have always supported, supported and will continue to support the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, including Crimea,” Erdogan was quoted as saying by Interfax.

    I am not even talking about the rashness of the step of selling weapons such as the S-400 to one of Russia's main competitors in terms of political claims in the Middle East and North Caucasus.

    Talking in the media is not even half the battle .. it's just "zilch" so far. But the air defense uncontrolled by NATO is a thorn in the butt of the United States, which are accustomed to flying around Europe like at home. And that's a fact.
