Russia's defense ministry on Wednesday accused Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his family of involvement in illegal oil trade with ISIS terrorist group, as dispute rages over Ankara's downing of Moscow's Su-24 fighter jet near Turkey-Syria border.

"The main consumer of this oil stolen from its legitimate owners Syria and Iraq is Turkey. According to available information, the highest level of the political leadership of the country, President Erdogan and his family, are involved in this criminal business," deputy defence minister Anatoly Antonov told journalists.

Ties between Turkey and Russia have shattered after Ankara shot down the jet on its border with Syria last Tuesday, with President Vladimir Putin accusing Ankara of downing the plane "to protect the oil supply lines to Turkish territory".

Some days later, Russian fighter jet pounded dozens of oil tanker near the gate of turkey borders.

Erdogan has rejected earlier that Turkey is involved in the illegal oil trade with ISIS in Syria and Iraq, insisting he would resign if allegations were proved true.

"Today we are presenting only part of the facts in our possession, that there is a unified team of bandits and the Turkish elite working in the region to steal oil from its neighbor’s," Antonov said at the press conference in the defence ministry.

"This oil enters the territory of Turkey in huge quantities, on an industrial scale along a living pipeline of thousands of oil tankers," he said.

Antonov says that "terrorists in Syria" earned $2 billion from the illegal oil trade and "that is why ISIS so protects its thieving oil extraction infrastructure in Syria and Iraq."
