Putin: Russia ‘Will Not Forget’ Turkish Downing of Warplane
Thu Dec 3, 2015 14:20:06

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday vowed never to forget Turkey’s downing of one of Moscow’s warplanes, as he lashed out once again at the leadership in Ankara over the incident.

“We will not forget this complicity with terrorists. We always considered and will always consider treachery to be the ultimate and lowest act. Let those in Turkey who shot our pilots in the back know this,” Putin told lawmakers in his annual state of the nation address. AFP reported.

Moscow and Ankara have been engaged in a war of words since the Turkish Air Force shut down a Russian Sukhoi Su-24 fighter jet on 24 November, claiming the warplane had repeatedly violated Turkish airspace. Moscow, however, insists the jet never left Syrian airspace.
