In Turkey stated that the pilot made the decision to shoot down the su-24

Deputy Chairman of the ruling Turkish party of justice and development party (AKP), MP Yasin Aktay said that the pilot who shot down Russian su-24, made its own decision.

He noted that the violation of its airspace, of course, invalid, but the decision to shoot down a Russian plane was made in the air. The pilot could make the decision not to shoot down the plane that violated the airspace in the short term and intends to leave him,” said Aktay.

He explained that Turkey defended the actions of the pilot, not questioning their right to use force in such cases, however, the destruction of the aircraft, which left the airspace, raises questions.

He noted that the message on detention of the pilots, who shot down the su-24, will contribute to the improvement of relations between Russia and Turkey.

Earlier, the Turkish authorities reported that the pilots were detained on suspicion of involvement in the coup attempt.
