"They fired off radar countermeasures": Turkey publishes details of the "imitation of attack" of the Greek Air Force on a Turkish ship

30

Some details of the "imitation attack" of the Greek Air Force on the Turkish ship have emerged. These details are announced by the Turkish side.


Turkey has recently accused the Greek Air Force of "provocation against a research vessel in the Aegean Sea." Turkish media reports that four Greek air force fighters appeared over the TCG eşme (Cesme) vessel, which Ankara claims was engaged in hydrographic research west of the Greek island of Lemnos.

According to the Turkish press, combat aircraft of the Greek Air Force carried out the shooting of a radar countermeasures about two nautical miles from the Turkish vessel. It is noted that Turkey perceives such a step as provocative and calls on the Greek side to abandon "dangerous behavior in the air."

Meanwhile, the Greek Ministry of Defense says that none of the aircraft of the Greek Air Force was in the square where the Turkish ship Cesme was working at that time.

A spokesman for the Greek Ministry of Defense is quoted by the Greek Reporter:

The Greek Air Force was conducting military exercises, but this was in the northern part of the Aegean Sea, far from Lemnos. The aircraft performed combat training missions near the island of Agios Efstratios.

However, the Turkish side did not abandon its accusations against Athens after that, noting that there was “an imitation of an attack”. It got to the point that Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar called the "incident" "another example of military persecution by Greece."

And the official representative of the ruling party in Turkey Omer Celik, in turn, accused the Greeks of "military provocation" and added that "the incident does not contribute to creating a positive atmosphere and strengthening the partnership in NATO." Celik noted that the incident could affect the barely resumed talks after a 5-year break on the settlement of the Turkish-Greek disputes in the Aegean Sea. Such negotiations resumed in January.

Meanwhile, the Turkish Defense Ministry announced the start of large-scale military exercises in the Aegean Sea. They will last until March 7, and they plan to use 82 ships of the Turkish Navy, several units of the Marine Corps, as well as Aviationincluding the unmanned one.

      This is a Turkish ship - TCG Çeşme ("Cesme"), named for a port city in Turkey, better known to us as - Chesma ?



      Chesme Bay, 1770

        Most likely it is.
        It is unlikely that the ship was given the name "Fountain"

      Turkey should not touch Greece, this is not Syria, and Turkey is not Israel. They will be left alone, against their own allies. They can make noise, but no more, otherwise the whole elite will gather around Turkey. Why Erdogan is doing this is not clear. Erdogan probably knows about the alliance treaties of Greece, they certainly will not be left alone.))

        So the conversation does not go that Turkey is touching Greece. The conversation is about the fact that Turkey is conducting geological exploration near its territory. Greece, which is much further and says that this is happening in its economic zone (pay attention not territorial but economic, these are different things) agrees to the "UN Convention on the Law of the Sea". But there are 2 snags in this document.
        1. There is no indication of economic waters starting from the mainland or from the island, Greece speaks from the island, Turkey speaks from the mainland this is the first moment.
        2. Turkey did not sign this agreement at all, and for her it is a simple piece of paper that has no legal basis.

        The question is that Turkey is conducting reconnaissance in the zone, which it considers to be no-man's, but closer to the Turkish mainland. She doesn't attack anyone. At the moment, Greece is behaving aggressively, turning either warships or aircraft around the reconnaissance zone. Turkey in response says, let someone dare to attack, they will immediately receive a tough rebuff. Greece wants to attack but cannot, and then France immediately appeared with its own capabilities. As Greece realizes that by attacking Turkey's reconnaissance ships, Greece will lose sovereignty, it began to form a coalition against Turkey in the face of Turkey's enemies, and also began inflammatory quotes aimed at discord between Turkey and Russia.

    There are graters for the oil-bearing regions of the Aegean Sea between the Turks and the Greeks.
    It's amazing that they are both NATO members.
    And how will this conflict within NATO be resolved and whether the big question will be resolved at all.
    If one NATO member attacks another NATO member, how will the 5th amendment work ... who will the crowd of 30 members press then?

        So after all, sanctions will again be imposed for Russia's aggressive policy in this matter, for interfering in NATO affairs ... they can also solder an attack on NATO members in pursuit. hi

      So they already fought. Then, in fact, all NATO members were on the side of Greece, and the Turks once again ran to the USSR.
      In gratitude for the support, the Turks subsequently concluded several large contracts with the USSR for the construction of various industries.
      If it starts, the same will happen now, I think.

    Turkey's teachings are the closure of the hydrographic vessels of the Turks, so that Turkish scientists are not distracted by any Greek nonsense. Any problems between NATO countries are beneficial to us.

    The Turks publish such a picture, but judging by what they write that the shooting was at a distance of 1000 m, it looks like the work of Photoshop
    Nowadays, when everyone has a smartphone with a camera in their pocket, it's no problem to take a photo of something that goes beyond the usual frames.

    And the tale was continued in another kingdom-state, in Libya. Where so the Turks butted with the Saudis and climbed on a rampage, risking a collision with the Egyptian army. The French also added fuel to the fire.
    But as long as there is smoke, the fire is not visible, and Qatar with which Turkey climbed arm in arm to both Syria and Libya made peace with its neighbors.

    Judging by the previously published map of "Turkey's interests", the sultan wants to own the lands of Greece / Cyprus. The trend is for the restoration of the Empire, where Erdogan will become the official sultan.
    Graters with the Greeks - NATO members, flirting with the EU on refugees, disputes with the United States over air defense from the Russian Federation, open military support of Azerbaijan in Karabakh, support of the barmaley in Syria, etc. - all these are links in the logic of the Sultan, who quietly, wriggling like a serpentine, tries to achieve all his goals of collecting the lands of the Great Port.

    Yes, this picture is "photoshopped", and very roughly. Specific swindle. I don't think she'll be willing to prove it. Is it as a screensaver to the article.

    Base in relation to Greece and Turkey = EVIL. The evil ones control completely Greece and the great part of Turkey. Turkish special services
    filling in English agents. For example, the murder of the Russian ambassador in Turkey worked with the hands of stupid and stupid agents of the Turks. The question is what the spite has planned so it will be. The Sultan is not stupid and works exactly in the direction where he knows that there will be a quiet STRONG ass on the side of the Anglo-Saxons.
