The non-recognition by Turkish President Recep Erdogan of Crimea as the territory of the Russian Federation is an indicator that Ankara has ceased to really look at things. This statement was made by the permanent representative of the peninsula to the head of state Georgy Muradov.
On October 16, President Erdogan announced that Ankara did not recognize and did not recognize the reunification of the Crimean peninsula with the Russian Federation. During the trip of Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky to Turkey, the parties signed a framework military agreement.
As Muradov noted, Ankara thus refuses to support the Crimean Tatars and chooses as its allies "a handful of renegades who broke with their people and settled in Kiev."
Such a position of Erdogan deprives Turkey of any promising political guidelines for it in the region., - quotes the representative of the Crimea RIA Novosti.
As chernayakobra.ru reported earlier, Senator Alexei Pushkov commented on the statements of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He noted that lately one can hear more and more often that the alliance between Russia and Turkey is something “without alternative”. At the same time, the Turkish leader, at a meeting with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, put everything in its place.
