"Contradicting the spirit of alliance": Turkey reacts to new US sanctions for military-technical cooperation with Russia

45

Turkish President



It became known about a new package of sanctions against Turkey, which is being introduced by the administration of the United States of America. The sanctions measures against Ankara will take effect on Wednesday 7 April.

Washington explained the reasons why they decided to introduce new anti-Turkish sanctions.

As it turns out, in this case, too, they are associated with military-technical cooperation between Ankara and Moscow, namely, with the acquisition of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems by the Turks from Russia.

In the United States, it is indicated that economic restrictions are being imposed on 4 representatives of the Directorate of the Defense Industry, "involved in the deal with Russia in the military-technical sense." At the same time, attention is drawn to the fact that among the officials of this director, who fell under the sanctions, his head Ismail Demir was again indicated. The fact is that a few months ago, the United States already imposed sanctions against Demir, freezing his foreign accounts.

The news of new sanctions from the United States has caused outrage in the Turkish press. Ankara is reacting to the new sanctions package, noting that it "contradicts the spirit of cooperation and alliance that has always characterized relations between Turkey and the United States."

Turkish journalists and bloggers specializing in military topics note that Washington is making it clear that "Turkey may not wait for deliveries of F-35 fighters." The fact is that the country's authorities still hoped for the Biden administration in the sense that it would lift the restrictive measures introduced by Donald Trump against Ankara. President Erdogan has repeatedly spoken about this. Recall that it was under Trump that the United States introduced the first anti-Turkish sanctions, banning the supply of the latest fighters to Turkey, which Ankara had already paid for. But Erdogan's expectations are not being met. The United States not only did not change its decision, but only toughened anti-Turkish measures.

Earlier, Turkey noted that in case of problems with the supply of fighters from the United States, they "could consider the option with the Russian Su-57 and Su-35."

    Cooperation with the United States in the State Department of this country is understood as the implementation of their orders without discussion.
    Either the Turks are following orders from Washington, or they will be flogged with sanctions until they are broken.
    Let's see how Turkey turns out to be a hardy country. what
    Hold on Recep, this is just the beginning. smile

      Moreover, the Turks were thrown - they did not put the already paid money and the money was not aired.
      The West has been rich in plunder, robbery and deceit throughout its history. Nothing has changed.

        They do not ally with Ukraine, but to get engines for UAVs and other technologies, who will be against it) This is purely a benefit, a real policy. Ukraine, unfortunately, today is an ordinary consumable, the technologies inherited from the mighty USSR are not unlimited and the need for this education is not absolute, everything will come to an end someday.

    So striped ears have already undertaken to destroy the Turkish economy, undermining the lira. The pressure of the sanctions pressure is very great. Moreover, the covid was raging there again. No matter how the sultan asked for a loan in Russia ...

      How can you not give your friend Recep a loan ?? Interest free. And then writing it off after a while is a favorite pastime of Russia, as the successor to the USSR.
      Well ... bewilderment, deep concern about unfriendly actions of Turkey, in the future, how the Turks will get out of their ass thanks to the Russians, are included in the package, as a bonus.

      The Sultan himself distributes money, and not small ones. For the past 4-5 years, his country has been donating $ 5-7 billion to the global humanitarian aid fund, being a world leader. And this amount is equal to 45% of the military budget of Turkey.

      Why does he need Azerbaijan? And so it will not go anywhere.
      It is better to divide Georgia. Recep - Adjara, invested for many years, deserved it.
      Batumi is a good city.
      And Russia - the rest.

      Who are you? What a rotten conversation? I am Russian-Azerbaijani and live in Azerbaijan !!! And who are you to say such things about Azerbaijan? Have good manners to respect strangers !!! Give yourself first to the Sultan and then point your finger at others !!! For your information Azerbaijan is a sovereign country which is located between 4 powers (Russia, Iran, China, Turkey) and which has normal relations with everyone. And not who, absolutely not who does not have to say such words !!!

        Truth? Your compatriots, spewing megatons of dirt on the Russian Federation and the people of the Russian Federation, are you throwing the same speeches? And what do you care who this user is? I suppose, first of all, we are all human, which means first self-criticism, then criticism.

          If someone is rude it is necessary to answer him, and not to humiliate the whole people or the whole country. You may have noticed that I wrote about who he is to him personally, and not to a group of people. At the expense of dirt, it is everywhere, and here and there .... And to humiliate the nation, we will give you to the Sultan as an exchange currency, this is an overkill of all sticks.

            I suppose the answer is expected to be somewhat more meaningful than who you are. This time, the second, you listen to yourself, you do not understand who writes that he will give the Sultan, nonsense, no? And how do you react to this nonsense. , I will ask you rhetorically how you react to an elementary hint. We understand our dirt, but there are no tendencies on your part, and this is fraught with raising new generations on hatred and humiliation, do not expect good from such tendencies. Yes, and Azerbaijan, decent people and the cuisine are excellent, this is my personal opinion.

              I am a restrained person on the tour, but his words - "It will be cool, Rajep, get out of NATO, anyway there is no chance for you there! And we will support you within reason! Do you want Azerbaijan?" - it does not fit into any framework. How can a simple individual say such words about a country where 10 million people live? This is normal? What did he think of himself to even take such words on the lips?

                Yes, he did not think anything, that's the point) The Internet allows you to carry any nonsense, the Russian Federation is not interested in neoosmans, we are more or less friends with the peoples, the dog is with him) The Lord will judge the right and the left.

    "Is contrary to the spirit of cooperation and alliance that has always characterized the relations between Turkey and the United States."
    The "spirit of cooperation and alliance" is only remembered when it is beneficial to the United States. In 50-70, this spirit was perfectly felt on the Soviet-Turkish border in actions against our country. Today they did not want to buy from the Americans, but bought from the Russians, so get sanctions and forget about all the spirit of anything.

    Comments on the article in the spirit, "to spite my grandmother, I will frostbite ears." The Americans are the Kremlin's partner, the Turks are in some places allies with the Kremlin. What do the Russians care about this showdown? But no, you are ready to hand out the S-400 belay Who do you want to punish? The main thing is that it is profitable for Russia, and Turkey has not paid a single kurush for the S-400 yet.

    The question is not entirely on the topic. What they do not write about on the site, but I do not find information on an issue that is directly related to the topic of the site. We are talking about the arrest of more than a hundred former high-ranking Turkish military, mainly from the Navy, who protested against Turkey's possible abandonment of the Montreux Convention.
