Turkish MP: I Want again to shoot down Russian aircraft


The Deputy of the Turkish Parliament Shamil Tayyar extremely inadequately reacted to the victory of Moscow CSKA over Turkish side Fenerbahce in the final of the basketball Euroleague. In retaliation, the MP proposed to re-attack the Russian VKS.

Provocative message the politician posted on his Twitter page. “I want again to shoot down a Russian plane!” — Tayyar wrote, commenting on a sports match. We will remind, the Russian CSKA with a score of 101:96 defeated Turkish Fenerbahce and won the most prestigious club basketball tournament of Europe.

Insanın bir daha düşüresi Rus uçağı geliyor!

Statement of policy caused a negative reaction among users of social networks. Some have questioned the mental health of Tayyar, others have noted that the rash words of the Deputy is able to further harm Turkish-Russian relations.

Tayyar is a member of the ruling Party of justice and development, founded by the current President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The party is headed by Ahmet Davutoglu, recently retired from the post of Prime Minister.

Relations between Russia and Turkey escalated after the incident on 24 November 2015. That day the Turkish air force shot down a Russian Sukhoi su-24 in the skies over Syria. Thereafter, Moscow imposed against Ankara in a number of economic and visa sanctions of nature.
