Erdogan in a telephone conversation with Putin called for a "fair solution" on Ukraine

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is still trying to act as a peacemaker and reconcile Russia and Ukraine. As reported in the office of the Turkish leader, Erdogan held telephone conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.


The conversation took place at the initiative of the Turkish side, the presidents discussed a number of issues, including bilateral relations, the situation in Syria and the military conflict in Ukraine, in general, everything that greatly worries Ankara. The main topic, judging by the publications of the Turkish press, was still Syria, where the Turkish army is preparing to conduct another military operation against the self-defense units of the Kurds.

On Ukraine, Erdogan called on Putin for a "fair solution" by advocating a ceasefire and ending the conflict through peaceful negotiations. Neither the office of the Turkish president nor the Turkish press provides other details. It is worth noting that Erdogan, from the very beginning of the special military operation of the Russian army, has been trying to reconcile Russia and Ukraine, making statements of this kind.

There have also been repeated proposals to provide intermediary services from Turkey, but to date, all Ankara's efforts are in vain. Moscow said that although they were ready for negotiations, they should only take place on Russian terms and certainly not with Zelensky as a negotiator. The Kyiv inmate is not an independent figure, he is a puppet of the West and carries out all orders coming from across the ocean. So it is necessary to talk with the Americans and the British, but they are not ready for this, declaring their intention to fight with Russia to the last Ukrainian.

Kyiv is also not ready for negotiations, declaring that they must first "liberate" the entire territory of Ukraine, including the Donbass and Crimea, and only then talk with Moscow, again from a position of strength. So Erdogan's desire to act as a peacemaker is not yet feasible.

      What kind of decision is fair according to Erdogan? Give up Crimea and disperse or what? laughing Something like on command, everyone stepped up to ask for a truce, starting from the Patriarch and ending with Erdogan. It looks like the APU is doing very badly. Or maybe not listen to anyone, not follow anyone’s lead, but put pressure on the APU, complete the work of at least the liberation of Donbass, and only then to think about a truce, but rather about peace on our terms, otherwise it’s possible to fight FOREVER, without solving the problem, but only interrupted from time to time from one Minsk to another? They will leave us behind only when we show strength and fight back, because everyone will understand that we cannot be conquered and they will abandon this venture. And if we always agree to a truce to our own detriment, then we will be pressured all the time, because we did not fight back, but only once again agreed to the conditions of the West regarding a truce. So we don’t care they won't leave you alone. That's what Western agent Korchinsky says. So all these truces are a betrayal.

      “Ukraine must provide assistance to every people who are trying to remember their national identity. First of all, to the peoples of the Caucasus, because this is the key to the disintegration of the "erefiya" - the Tatars, the Bashkirs, all the Turks and everyone who wakes up. Yes, we must help, stimulate and our defense must be extremely active. That is. We must go there and help these peoples to free themselves. With access to the state borders, the war will not end for us. Because as long as there is Muscovy, there is a war. As long as it exists, we are in mortal danger. If this has been the case for the last 500 years, then most likely the next 500 years will be exactly the same if we do not finish them off,” Korchinsky said.

        Erdogan in a telephone conversation with Putin called for a "fair solution" on Ukraine
        And what does Erdogan's "fair decision" look like in Ukraine?

        First of all. Erdogan is an Ottoman.
        And secondly. Turkey's project on the creation of the so-called. "Great Turan" has not disappeared anywhere!

        According to the Turkish project of the "Great Turan" of the Ottomanists of Turkey Crimea, among other lands, should enter the lands of the Great Turan.
        As a result, the policy of Erdogan and Turkey on Ukraine and Russia is absolutely understandable. Namely.
        It is much easier for Erdogan (Turkey) to take Crimea from Kyiv than to take Russian Crimea from Russia!
        TOTAL. Therefore, with all of his double-dealing actions between Ukraine and Russia, Erdogan is and will continue to act on the side of the Nazi-Russian Kyiv regime in Ukraine, and not on the side of Russia!

        REFERENCE
        The future Ottoman Empire - according to the "Great Turan" project - will include, according to Erdogan, Abkhazia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, as well as Russian territories: the Caucasus, Crimea, Dagestan, Tatarstan, Astrakhan, Volgograd, Rostov, Saratov, Samara regions, Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories and even Siberia.

          No. These are not plans. This is already a diagnosis. But most likely another fairy tale for the electorate for new elections. I strongly doubt that Azerbaijan will want to be part of the mythical Turan. Russia. It seems to be all their own, but just a little bit of tobacco apart. So we also have that Union State with Belarus.

      Not only armored vehicles, but also drones, electronic warfare modules for them, stationary electronic warfare for 70 km. So the negotiations with Erdogan, a so-so "strategic partnership", are more likely to have some other reasons that we do not know about.

      The Turks claim that these Kirpis are preventing the West from imposing sanctions on Turkey for helping Russia avoid sanctions imposed on it. Yes, at first many Turks hoped that Ukraine would win this round and Russia would return to the 2014 border. But most Turks now know that they will never be able to help Ukraine enough to make that happen, which is why they cut off large arms transfers a few months ago. But they will keep marginal supplies even if Ukraine is on the brink of losing, because in that case NATO cannot accuse it of siding with Russia, even though it has the deepest relationship with Russia among NATO members. Turkey is not a friend, it is a major partner.

    Why did Russia attack the art of war? Why were 150-160 thousand people sent to a country with 600 thousand km2? Where are the FSB and the GRU? Nobody knew the mood in Ukrainian society? Why Kyiv was not fired from artillery? Why were the bridges on the Dnieper not destroyed at the first stage of the war? Where is FAB-500 located? fab 1500? It's all one big sabotage and lack of responsibility. This is the result of 30 years of democracy and 20 years of Putin's rule. Meanwhile, the elites continue to do business with the West.

      Not only Crimea, but everything, everything, everything. Erdogan is a British agent (or at least a protege), and Turkey is a rising superpower (at the expense of the Russian Federation), the heir to the USSR. So they pointed out in London (they have a plan, and they not only think it).

    On Ukraine, Erdogan called on Putin for a "fair solution" by advocating a ceasefire and ending the conflict through peaceful negotiations.

    A fair decision is the return of its territories to Russia, the disarmament of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, or rather, leaving only the National Guard. A fair trial for the Nazis.

    You might think Putin is against! Of course, he, like all of us, is exclusively for a fair decision on Ukraine! It completely withdraws from the territories of the LDNR, ZO and KhO, and also completely frees Kharkov, Nikolaev, Odessa, Dnepropetrovsk and Poltava from its presence. In other territories, the government of Ukraine withdraws units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to winter quarters, disbands nationalist battalions and regiments, arrests, sentences their former employees to long terms and their leaders to capital punishment, prohibits the glorification of Nazism, returns monuments of the Soviet period and historical names to streets and cities, resumes the work of the repressed media!

    IMHO, a super fair decision in Ukraine. Any other decision is not fair.

    After the grain deal, the surrender of Kherson, and the last shame with the truce, it became quite obvious who was holding whom for tomatoes.

    Yes, what are you talking about!)))
    And those who continue to pay Ukraine for the transit of resources to the West, those who generally still supply resources to this very West - who are they then? By the way, for some reason their children are not visible on the front line.

    And you are a typical martinet, obviously. All under the same brush. And people are all different. And not everyone is given to work with weapons. At the same time, people do not refuse to help their country. But the ACS, you see, is not provided for in the conditions of mobilization. Although people in the Donbass need not only military assistance, but also, obviously, social and civil.

    And people like you sit on warm sofas.
    Isn't the hostilities already touching the territory of Russia, our home?

    And if suddenly a Ukrainian DRG breaks into your apartment, then what are you? Will you call Shoigu with a demand to send you a company of mobilized, because your age does not allow you to fight? Or what? Or will you fight?

    The most fair thing, of course, is to reach the western borders of Ukraine, making this territory truly independent from Western bandits.

    It is worth noting that Erdogan, from the very beginning of the special military operation of the Russian army, has been trying to reconcile Russia and Ukraine, making statements of this kind.

    Erdogan also refused to bow to NATO pressure to impose sanctions or price caps on Russia. Turkey is currently acting as a lifeline for a sanctions-ridden Russia and has regularly (even yesterday) named the West as the main culprit in this war. Yes, the President of Turkey acts in accordance with the interests of his country; but apart from Putin, he is also the only major leader capable of publicly pointing out the evil conspiracies of the West. Uncle Sam obviously doesn't like it, but they can't take tougher action against Turkey while the war in Ukraine is in full swing. Just last week US officials were in Ankara to put pressure on Turkey over the Russia issue.
    Thus, Erdogan is still Russia's biggest partner (currently on par with China), as well as its biggest "regional" competitor. In Turkey's interest to keep Ukraine as an independent country, Erdogan knows that Russia will show no mercy to his country if it completely takes over Ukraine. But it is also in Turkey's interests that Russia survive this war and not again become a powerless country pleasing to the West. This will give NATO complete independence in action against Turkey. Thus, Erdogan is a puppet of his country's interests. To understand Erdogan's dance, one must see the situation through the eyes of a Turkish Islamist.
