Turkey will provide the Ukrainian army with assistance funding in the framework of the deal recently signed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zekensly in Kiev.
The agreed Turkish donation to the Ukrainian military will be around $33 million. Kiev will be able to use this amount to buy military and dual-use goods from Turkey. Currently, Kiev and Ankara employ around 50 joint projects in the sphere of the military and technical cooperation.
The two countries also agreed to complete negotiations on free trade agreement (FTA) by the end of this year. The sides also discussed the issues of ‘diversifying energy supplies’.
“We’ve have discussed the possibility of transporting Caspian gas by the TANAP pipeline through the relevant connectors to Ukraine,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.
The Turkish posture, especially military assistance to Ukraine, caused a negative reaction within the Russian society, which considered Erdogan’s move as a direct attack on Russian interests.
These developments come amid the ongoing escalation in the Syrian province of Idlib. Ankara continues supporting actions of radical militant groups (including those linked with al-Qaeda) that operate in the area. These groups are excluded from the de-escalation deal, but Turkey insists that the Syrian Army violates the ceasefire and threatens Turkish interests by attacking the terrorists.
On February 5, Erdogan even threatened Syria with a declaration of war if the Syrian Army does not withdraw from the areas liberated from al-Qaeda.
Turkey already got what they want from Russia : S-400 air defense system, Turkstream pipeline to Europe, Safe Zone in Northern Syria and agreement on Libya. What else does Russia has to offer ? If Russia couldn’t find another bargain fast, the situation will be worsen.
Those agreements can be reversed.But we all knew Turks are not to be trusted.
They can shut down those s400s at anytime.
The cool thing about this is that Constantinopla will rise from the ashes.
Remind me, but, what was the reason behind Montreux Convention and was it not because the West kept double crossing Turkey?
That’s Yid logic, past wrongs suffered do not justify present wrongs committed.
My guess is that you don’t know shit about Russia. Putin did this, Putin did that. Crawl under your bed.
Turkstream and S400 serve Russian interests and the 33 million is petty cash, esp since 90 percent corruption rate will take true total to seven figure s
I think Russians are delighted with this action by Erdogan.
Normal turk behavior.
Erdogan is exposed.
Let’s just say that he is over extended. He has his head up his ass in far too many locations.
Ruca I think that killer Erdogan is totally confused.
The Turks are under a lot of pressure to capitulate to the Jews. Whether they’l buckle or not remains to be seen. If events on the ground and the steady progress on the ground and in the air by the Syrian government coalition are any indication. The Turks are more interested in getting the region’s and humanity’s Jew problem corrected than doing the Jew’s dirty work for them.
yep, erdogan considers the iddle east as his domain and not something that the jews shall lay their greedy sticky fingers on – so at the end of the day, erdogan will sign up and join the evisceration of the jews from palestine – you bet!
The encircled Turkish human shields (soldiers) will be left with nothing to do but scratch their testicles and spend their days watching porn.
33 million? nothing. 29.9 million will be stolen by president and some oligarschs. :D
I wonder how many are Turkish and if Erdogan wants them back?
So Erdo takes tax-payers’ money to give to Ukraine. Ukraine will then buy weapons from Turkey with that money that comes back to Turkey as foreign sales! Doesn’t this look like a scam! And he had to talk to Zelensky about that. Economic problems are not solved like this by just massaging figures and giving donations to other countries. Looks more like he is paying off blackmailers.
this is why it’s doesn’t have friends…
