Pilots of the country's Air Force detained in Sukhoi-24 Russian Aerospace Force of the Russian Federation detained in Turkey

49
Information Agency Bloomberg referring to Turkish sources, reports that in Turkey pilots were taken into custody who took part in the operation to strike at the Russian Su-24, whose crew carried out an anti-terrorism mission in November last year. It should be noted that the Turkish authorities, on the first day after an attempt of a coup d’etat by Erdogan’s opponents (the official version of Ankara), stated that the pilot who shot down Su-24 was among the participants of anti-government actions.


On the eve of the news agency Anadolu published information that the commander of the Turkish Air Force, Akin Ozturk, allegedly took all the blame for the attempted coup d'état. However, after a few hours, information of this kind was removed from the news agency pages. Instead, Turkish media reported the opposite. According to the latest data, General Ozturk does not admit his guilt, adding that he does not know either the one who planned the coup or the one who carried it out.

Today, the President of the country Erdogan addressed the people of Turkey, calling the attempt of a military coup in the country a “terrorist attack”. Anadolu cites a statement by a well-established Turkish president:

We urged everyone who loves his people and homeland to go to the square, to protect their state and democracy. Following this, despite all the threats and dangers, we went to Istanbul and opposed to the actions of the putschists our decisive position.

Our people, members of our security forces, together with members of the Turkish Armed Forces, who refused to join the conspirators, demonstrated historical stamina in the face of a coup attempt. The courage shown that night by our people in their confrontation with terrorists dressed in military robes became a page of the inexhaustible chronicle of heroism.

In the face of the people's determination to protect their will and their country weapon, Tanks and the helicopters of the coup attempt participants were powerless.




In an interview with CNN Turk, a journalist who broadcast Erdogan’s statement via the Internet on Saturday night, the Turkish president said that if he had stayed for 15 minutes at the hotel, he would have been killed. At the same time, Erdogan once again accused the preacher Fethullah Gülen, who lives in the USA, of developing a coup plan.

    Yeah ... He shot down himself, without any orders from above!
    Probably Perdogan, he himself handed the order for the downing of our plane and assigned an extraordinary rank. If you hadn’t participated in the coup attempt, you’ll look quickly before the Air Force Commander-in-Chief of Turkey.
    How smartly this hamadryl is changing shoes! I won’t be surprised if he offers this flyer to be extradited to Russia for trial.
    And what - "And the wolves are fed, and the sheep are safe" - will deal with the putschist with someone else's hands, and, after all, an attempt to satisfy our thirst for revenge may be reckoned ...
    As for the coup, I am tormented by the thought that these putschists, as they say, “played in the dark”. An operation by Erdogan's special services was developed to provoke a part of the army into an attempted coup, followed by their defeat. It all ended too quickly.
    And now Erdogan's hands are untied in repression, as we have in the old days: - "At the numerous requests of the workers" they will start chopping off their heads and chopping off prisons to the eyeballs with the opposition and potentially dangerous military.

        No mistakes? Already twice in the internet there was infa that the pilot died and two different options: a terrorist attack with a bus and something else.
        Maybe we are talking about fighter pilots trying to bring down Erdogan’s plane? recourse

            Not a minute, Erdogan never said that he had given the order.
            But Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that the order was given to them personally.
            Under the current constitution of Turkey, the Prime Minister is superior to the President.
            And now the oil painting: Davutoglu - nowhere, pilots arrested, Russia is not at war with Turkey. Things are good. Till. Let's see further.

      In fact of the matter. It seems to me that these snipers joined the fluffers because, after Erdogan’s apology to Putin, they felt betrayed, they were afraid that they might be merged. Indirectly, this indicates that they shot down a plane on the orders of politicians, and after an apology, they began to fear.

        Erdogan apologized to the family of the downed pilot, and not to Putin - stop watching Kisel-tv. And certainly no one would have merged them - Everyone drains the bangs, they can’t merge in any way, but here the combat pilots

          A letter of apology was sent to Putin, not to the families of the pilots. It is a fact.
          The very fact of the apology after seven months of bickering testifies to the drain of the situation itself. Why shouldn't people also be merged? Yes, and the official Turkish position was originally such that the pilots made their own decisions. Moreover, "drain" is a broad concept.
          Chelik is one of the leaders of the group and the commander of the unit. There are many people behind him, including all the Wolves sympathizers. And two flyers in a country where a harsh purge of the army has been going on for several years could well turn out to be consumables.

            Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Wednesday, November 25, said that he personally gave the order to bring down the Russian Su-24 bomber, which on Tuesday, November 24, violated Turkish airspace.
            “It was I who gave the order to bring down the plane,” said Mr. Davutoglu, reports Turkish publication zaman.

        I absolutely agree with you. Because two options of apologies were exaggerated: for internal (apologies to Russia) and external consumption (apologies to the family of the downed commander of the SU-24, count for Russia), then Turkish pilots accepted Erdogan's apology for betrayal and, of course, considered that they could be extradited for trial in Russia.

      Anyway, the pilot, after pressing the button, became a walking corpse with the dispatcher. In the situation that we have, they would still be disposed of-the law of the genre (they know who gave the order). So there’s nothing to be surprised at. The pilot isn’t for what preferences will not be delivered, or strangled quietly in the cell or shot, almost like the main terrorist.

      If they wanted to kill, they would have shot down in the air when accompanied. And there would be no need to storm any hotel. And many Turkish warriors should consider who they protect. A person who approves of an attack on a Russian plane, and then allegedly puts him in prison (but in fact everyone understands that if they were not on the list of putschists, they would go free).

      maybe you're right. if Erdogan gave the order. did you see this order? and I have not seen. I also consider dangerous the course of Erdogan towards Islamization and the oil business with Daesh. but if we assume the incident with the downed SU was a provocation with the expectation of undermining relations between Turkey and Russia, then this incident was more likely to hit Erdogan than was beneficial to him. Turkish Air Force commander Akyn Ozturk is involved in the coup. his order was enough. which option is correct? little information. it's hard to say for sure. here only time will tell. It is alarming that the coup occurred immediately after the start of the settlement. Who benefits from this? if you know where to find the exact information so let me know. and then some emotions.

        You dear are most likely right. By and large, the Turkish Sultan is trying to play two games at the same time: he wants both the West and Russia to make friends again, to appease the "lost" business. Therefore, it will "cleanse" everyone who can open his mouth, the pilots in this game are just a bargaining chip. They will also crush the fringe on the quiet, so that they forget about him.

    My opinion is beginning to develop that they want to gradually, unobtrusively, accustom us to the fact that the Turkish pilot is to blame for all the troubles with the SU-24. And then, as a result of the investigation, the coup attempt and the Air Force commander as the main culprit will be whipped up. The near future will show whether this is so. In any case, our elite will have to justify ourselves, like Turkish tomatoes. This option is most suitable to save face in front of the people. We will see.
