Erdogan has offered to discuss with Putin, the Crimea belongs to Turkey

Journalist Sergei Parkhomenko suggested that one of the topics of the meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin could be the affiliation of Crimea, which until the late eighteenth century belonged to the Ottoman Empire. In an attempt to revive it has repeatedly accused the Turkish leader.

Parkhomenko said that before Kuchuk Kainarji of 1774, that is, “at least three hundred years, Crimea was Turkish. In addition, this period can be extended by and at earlier times, when Crimea was the territory of the Byzantine Empire, conquered by the Turkish Sultan Mehmed II in 1453.

Finally, he added, it’s worth remembering khanate Bakhchisarai, which can also count Turkish: “it generally took possession of these places immediately after the fall of the Horde”.

On the occasion of the resumption of relations between the two countries Parkhomenko, thus, ironically offered “to prove how we respect dear Recep Typowych. As usual — with rich gifts.”

However, he added, Erdogan may abandon the “gift” in response to “raspoznanie the” genocide of the Armenians by the Turks in the early XX century. Recall Erdogan relates to this topic is extremely painful: recently Turkey gave a diplomatic scandal after the extermination of the Armenians was recognized as genocide in Germany.

Read, who reconciled Putin with Erdogan.

Note that the theme of the Crimea may appear at the meeting of the two leaders and in connection with the persecution of the Crimean Tatars on the Peninsula after his move to Russia. To ask such a question at a press conference after the meeting of Putin and Erdogan have repeatedly asked journalists lawyer mark Feigin, protecting the Vice-Chairman of the banned in Russia of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis Ilmi Umerov and Akhtem chigusa.
