In subsequent tweets Tayyar as well as in an interview with TASS, tried to explain that the entry was a joke and urged the Russian media to better understand the humor.

Recall, that the attack by Turkish destroyers on the Russian bomber in November 2015, has led to a sharp cooling between the two countries and the almost complete cessation of economic and political cooperation between them. So, Russia has refused imports from Turkey of most products (the list continues to expand to this day).

The scientists assumed that the subsequent, in 2016, the intensification of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh correspondence related to the confrontation between Russia and Turkey, supporting two different sides of the conflict — Armenia and Azerbaijan.
