Zelensky Goes To Turkey, As Erdogan Calls Moscow

Source: Press service of the presidential administration of Ukraine

According to diplomatic sources, on April 10, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky is going to pay a visit to Turkey due to the 9th assembly of the Turkey-Ukraine High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council.

“The meeting will be held with the participation of ministers, during which Turkish-Ukrainian relations, the level of strategic partnership in all its aspects will be discussed, measures can also be taken to develop and deepen bilateral cooperation, ” the Ukrainian official statement says.

Collaboration in the defense industry, free-trade agreement (FTA), and tourism are estimated to be in the major issues that will be discussed on the meeting.

Taking into account the sharp military escalation in Eastern Ukraine, it seems that the tourism is not the first topic to discuss.

In December 2020, Ankara and Kiev signed an agreement on the production of corvettes and attack drones for the Ukrainian army.

In 2019, Kiev purchased and tested 6 Bayraktar TB2 Turkish attack UAVs, which equipped with MAM-L high-precision bombs from the Turkish company Roketsan. Kiev also proclaimed its interest in the joint production of Bayraktar TB2 in Ukraine and that the Ukrainian army plans to purchase 48 such devices of joint production.

Another field of cooperation is the joint production of corvettes that is planned at the Okean shipyard in Nikolaev. The sides are also holding talks on joint production of the An-178 aircraft.

A day before Zelensky’s visit to Ankara, Recep Erdogan has spoken to Russian leader Vladimir Putin by telephone to discuss the growing crisis. Among other claims Putin urged Turkish President to preserve the Montreux Convention limiting the freedom of military ships to transit through the straits to the Back Sea.

The leaders discussed the Monteux Convention following reports that the US was considering sending its warships to the Black Sea in the coming weeks in a show of support for Ukraine. In practice, US warships navigate in the Black Sea on a regular basis.

“That’s not anything new,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said, referring to U.S. military ships in the Black Sea.

Thus, Biden’s claims were nothing but empty threats amid growing tensions in Eastern European region. At the same time, Turkish consultations with Moscow before welcoming Zelensky may also be a bad signal for Ukrainian leader.

    “Dear Sultan Erdoğan, how many Syrian mercenaries and ISIS can you supply for me to use as shock troops against the Donbass armies? Thanks kindly, Zelensky. “

    1. He who laughs last laughs best says:

      Not sure what will happen to them once they will be captured, but I will be more than happy to find out.

    2. Sultan should know that his interests in Syria will be wiped out if Putin finds out his involvement against Russian population

      1. Fog of War says:

        You must be kidding. Turkey’s duplicity has been obvious for years.

        1. Pave Way IV says:

          Turkey-backed Wahhabi mercs physically in Ukraine killing Russian-Ukraine citizens in Donbass would be materially different. There is the assured Russian kinetic response to such an incident. Then there would be the multidimensional world of pain Erdogan would bring on himself at the hands of Putin. Of course Russia won’t need to invade or attack Turkey for this. There’s still plenty of other ways to put the screws to Erdogan and his mafia clan. He would surely end up regretting such a move and his clan would be destroyed.

        2. Tommy Jensen says:

          Duplicity? I would say Multiplicity.
          Turkey is shifting friends and enemies like we are shifting under wears. Never trust a man who dont drink!

          1. Fog of War says:

            But grand master Putin doesnt drink. I wonder what that means ?

          2. Fog of War says:

            Tell that to the Saudi ” royals ” or the Muslim youth in the west.

          3. Hind Abyad says:

            Wahhabi are 200 yrs sect of Desert raiders barbarians who were given Arabia and oil by Zionists after WW1.

          4. Fog of War says:

            ” Wahhabi are 200 yrs sect ”

            Only 200 years ? When do they become a valid religious branch ? At 300, 400, 500 years ? Thats not a good argument against them as it could also be applied To Protestant Christianity.

            The Wahhabi’s problem is that they are vile, hypocritical, blood thirsty and sellouts to Zion.

          5. Frank says:

            The Wahhabis are a British creation. Abdul Wahab was a senile Bedouin who was recruited by the imperialists to destroy Islam from within. The experiment has been quite successful Frankly.

          6. Fog of War says:

            Controlled by the British later but not initially .

            ” The first “Saudi state” established in 1744 in the area around Riyadh, rapidly expanded and briefly controlled most of the present-day territory of Saudi Arabia,[100] sacking Karbala in 1802 and capturing Mecca in 1803, but was destroyed by 1818 by the Ottoman viceroy of Egypt, Mohammed Ali Pasha “

          7. Hind Abyad says:

            1744 was during Abd El Wahab life time, murderous UN-Godly sect.

          8. Fog of War says:

            Very True.

          9. Albert Pike says:

            ‘In addition to that revealed in the Hempher Memoirs, the Iraqi intelligence report also makes known some surprising claims, derived from works circulated in Arabic which have not been translated into English. As the report recounts, both Abdul Wahhab, and his sponsor, ibn Saud, who founded the Saudi dynasty, were of Jewish origin. For example, D. Mustafa Turan wrote, in The Donmeh Jews, that Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab was a descendant of a family of Donmeh Jews from Turkey. The Donmeh were descendants of followers of the infamous false-messiah of Judaism, Shabbetai Zevi, who shocked the Jewish world in 1666 by converting to Islam. Viewing it as a sacred mystery, Zevi’s followers imitated his conversion to Islam, though secretly keeping to their Kabbalistic doctrines. In Europe, the Shabbeteans were eventually led a century later by Jacob Frank, claiming to be a reincarnation of Zevi. And, according to Rabbi Antelman in To Eliminate the Opiate, to them belonged the Rothschilds who had a hand in the founding of the Bavarian Illuminati.’

          10. Hind Abyad says:

            Are you from Middle East? If yes you should know Muḥammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhāb ibn Sulaimān at-Tamīmī and Jihad.

            ”Those who would not conform to this view should be killed, their wives and daughters violated, and their possessions confiscated, he wrote.”

            This is the Wahhabi Sect

          11. Fog of War says:

            I’m not, but I’m versed in many things.

          12. Albert Pike says:

            The Saudi Royals Are Dönmeh descendants too…

    3. Icarus Tanović says:

      I can provide you with lots of headchopping Wahhabis blockheads, but you’ll have to give up your independence and sovereignty to me, the wannabe lamy Sultan.

  2. johnny rotten says:

    The caliph tries to reserve a quarter from the ox before it is slaughtered.

    1. Pave Way IV says:

      Remember… 25% for the Big Guy!

  3. Boycott-Saudi!!! says:

    If you want peace, ask God.
    If you want mercy, ask Czar Vladimirovich.
    But if you ask for Jihadis, talk to Erdoğan.

    1. Jihadi Colin says:

      😁

      Sultan Erdoğan’s Headchopper Emporium. Always Open!

      (Man, I’ve got to use that as a cartoon.)

      1. Boycott-Saudi!!! says:

        Bahahaha…

    2. Frank says:

      Jihadi headchoppers are produced by Turkish, Saudi and Pakistani Wahhabi madrassas and have more to do with CIA dollars than God.

      1. Icarus Tanović says:

        Frankly you’re always right.

        1. Frank says:

          Thanks for your Frank comment. BTW, Erdogan is calling for a special NATO meeting to expedite Ukrainian “membership”. He has also pledged to the Jew shill Zelensky that “Turkey will defend Ukraine against Russian aggression”.

          1. Hye says:

            Good…let the party begin.

          2. christianblood says:

            Erdogan is playing Nato and Ukraine against Russia to weaken both so that he could further his neo-ottoman, jihadist agenda!

    3. Icarus Tanović says:

      They have nothing to do with Jihad, so it is wrong to be addressed as such.
      Jihad is say, populate desert with trees, so that can give fresh air and ozon to entire continents.
      They (msm) obviously intentionally put word Jihad together with carnage, mass shootings, bombs, slaughters, horror and terror.
      And so does the word Islamist they use in absolutely negative connotation, without any real conection to Islamists (whatever that means)or Islam.

  4. Frank says:

    Frankly, two of the worst Zionist stooges on the planet. Both deserve to rot in hell, if there is any.

  5. Just Me says:

    Russian confused policies are mind boggling, Putin is selling weapons to Turks who are spearheading the war against Russia.

    1. Lone Ranger says:

      Ukraine cant even defeat itself, let alone other countries.
      Russia isnt confused, just look at what happened on the longterm.
      Jihadis are getting thrown into the meatgrinder in Idlib, Yemen, Lybia.
      CIA/soros friendly Armenian leadership is toast, while Russia expanded into Idlib and NK….
      Can you follow…
      Its chess not checkers…

      1. Frank says:

        Erdogan has pledged to defend Ukraine and wants expedited NATO membership/

        1. Lone Ranger says:

          Erdogan says a lot of things to many.
          Take it with a grain of salt.
          Turks are hyperpragmatic they will coze up to anybody if they hope some advantage in return.
          We saw how effective Turkey was in Idlib.
          They crumbled within 2weeks.

          1. Furkan Sahin says:

            i think Erdogan win 2023 election lol

          2. Lone Ranger says:

            Probably.
            But that’s better than a CIA stooge.

          3. Furkan Sahin says:

            how ?
            who a cia?
            do you mean Ekrem Imamoglu or Mansur Yavas?

          4. Lone Ranger says:

            I dont know them.
            But I do know the coup attempt a few years ago was done by the cia.
            So if they want yo get rid of Erdogan that’s reason enough to assume cia stooges sre already waiting to take over.

          5. Furkan Sahin says:

            Turkey coup is made by Cia?
            I do not think
            it only happened in 1 day everything is fake but look at Myanmar it is real coup not like Turkey

          6. Furkan Sahin says:

            Turkey does not have oil
            if it was real coup attempt then soldiers would have captured Erdogan easily but only in 1 day I do not believe in Cia

          7. Lone Ranger says:

            Putin saved Erdogan that day.
            With a phone call.
            He bought him 30mins to escape his holyday resort.
            Turkey is different because majority supports Erdogan.
            In Myanmar majority doesn’t support the military.
            Non the less both were are cia jobs.

          8. Furkan Sahin says:

            Ok but I’m not surprised if Erdogan does it himself coup attempt

          9. Lone Ranger says:

            Thats always a possibility in every coup.

          10. Furkan Sahin says:

            true

          11. Furkan Sahin says:

            I can never trust Erdogan sorry bro

          12. Lone Ranger says:

            Who said I trust him?
            I don’t like him or trust him.
            I only said he is a tad better than a cia stooge.

          13. Furkan Sahin says:

            I’d rather have a CIA than Erdogan
            because Erdogan supports jihadist terrorists and he hates Gaddafi and Assad

          14. Lone Ranger says:

            CIA is the same only worse.

          15. Furkan Sahin says:

            both is bad but Erdogan is very dangerous

        2. Lone Ranger says:

          By the way Turkey is on its way out of nato.

    2. Pave Way IV says:

      Putin is selling weapons to Turks who are spearheading the war against Russia.

      The U.S. had nearly all weapons sales to Turkey until Erdogan rejected the questionable Patriots in favor of the S-400. The U.S. ‘punishment’ meant booting them from the F-35 program, opening the doors for Russian arms sales. Every S-400 and Su-35 sold increases the strength and competitiveness of Russia’s military aviation industry. Turkey is hardly going to attack Russia with a few dozen Su-35s or S-400s. Russia does not confuse Turkish arms sales with its ability to influence Turkey’s foreign policy. The benefits outweigh the risks, and the Russians know Turkey is playing both sides here.

      1. NirKon says:

        Those S400s the Russians sold Turkey are useless as tits on a bull against Russian air-force assetts. Word has it that at the Russian MOD, they’re still laughing at how dumb the Turks can be. The Chinese? They won’t even sell Er-Dog an and his goat peddlers a sling-shot since they know he will try to copy any military tech delivered to them or pass it off to their friends on the Potomac or in Tel Aviv.

        1. Fog of War says:

          ” l try to copy any military tech delivered to them ”

          You could say that about Russia’s other ” partners ” also, China.

  6. Peter Jennings says:

    Considering the coup attempt against Erdogan in 2016, one would have thought that allowing US warships into the Black Sea right by the capital would be a no-no.

    The Turkish admin need all the business they can get as their currency is toast.

    1. Jim Allen says:

      Leveraged, Turkey owes big. Country’s broke, the Sultan is punished for his rebellious, and unruly purchase of an S-400 from US/NATO evil archenemy.
      But, dodged a bullet when petulant US Government yanked Turkeys contract for manufacturing F-35 components, and killed the sale of planes to Turkey. Sukhoi is a better choice, but then so is MiG-21.
      The Sultan is a rabid Freemason, as well.
      A loose cannon.

  7. Lone Ranger says:

    Seems like a nice target for a few Kalibr cruise missiles.
    Didn’t Ukranine lose 6 of their biggest arms depos amd factories in recent years due to strange unexplained explosions?
    They should be more careful about their safety standards…

    1. Kalibr is surface to surface, not surface to air, so they won’t be used against drones, you are mistaken with Tor

      1. Lone Ranger says:

        I meant the factories itself…

        TOR proved to be a 100% success against multiple types of drones even in large numbers in Syria.

    2. Tommy Jensen says:

      External factors.

  8. rightiswrong rightiswrong says:

    Three cheers to Erdogan, for his slapstick put down of the German champion of Wokeness, Ursula Ahem sit-on-a-sofa Von Leadenfooted.

    Best laugh of the week.

  9. 1shotthesher1ff says:

    Zelensky is posturing, We will see if the military situation in Syria and the economic situation in Lebanon are stabilized while Ukraine remains a basket case. Erdogan also is of limited use to Biden and the USA.

  10. Tommy Jensen says:

    Opposite. Erdogan phone Putin to be updated and next day he can make real planning with Zelensky.

    Erdogan is not stupid, he knows if he gotta get a chance to get into EU, he must stay shoulder by shoulder with Washington’s plans.
    He pretends towards Putin he is friend with Russia and say to Putin he only pretend to be friend with Ukraine, but under the table Erdogan knows he must do what an American says to get into EU……..LOL.

    Step by step we built up our forces and everybody will be surprised to see Russia against the wall suddenly confronted with 70 countries Nato Inherent Resolve Freedom Coalition with a belt of willing buffer nations with troops on the borderline from Mediterranean all the way up to Arctic. For freedom!
    America did it again. America showed leadership………….and won………………….LOL

    1. Jim Allen says:

      The Sultan has the same chance of joining EU, the snowball has in Hell.
      Maybe you didn’t notice, most NATO countries are having none of US, beyond what their debt to the Cabal leveraging force’s compliance. US is determined to destroy Germany, which stopping Nordstream II would result in bankruptcy for Germany. Merkel tells US “fuck off” whenever it’s mentioned. Putin stated the project will be completed. The number of times Putin has made statement’s of this nature, that didn’t come to fruition ? Zero.

    2. Hind Abyad says:

      What America, USrael?……………..LOL

  11. Hye says:

    The khazar and osmanlu are having a bromance… how wonderful.

  12. NirKon says:

    Waiting for the moment Russia, strongly but silently supported by China takes the Dardanelles and begins the Ottoman pushback. The Chinese, in fact, don’t want much if anything to do at all with that Turkic two-faced megalomaniac thief in chief, Erdogan. They know very well who he is and who stands behind him. Turks again prove to be the quintessential back-stabbers they have always been throughout the course of history.

  13. Garry Compton says:

    They discussed – tourism and economics – lol Crimea was the only tourist destination in Ukraine and Kyiv blew that when they made their mafia boyz and girls the head of the government in Simferopol’ = steal all the money for infrastructure and gov. building maintenance. Now the coastal road from Yalta to Sevastopol was pretty and well maintained, about as good as it gets – and it was all paid for by Russia not Ukie-ville – lol – Now the Turks, did have good construction companies working in Crimea and I knew a couple of them { ErBak was one } since that was my trade here and in the states. I like their architecture but I haven’t see any signs of them for awhile . They probably been banned from working here and there is a boom going on but…. So, Turkish companies can definetely provide the manpower for industry in Ukie ville, but the wages will be stolen from the workers – just like the Kyiv companies are noted for. Erdogan is a Muslim Brotherhood / Crypto that thinks the TaTar on his side – another Joke.
