How the Russian Turkey relationshps will be affected based on your opinion after the shooting down of the Russian military plane.
To put it differently: How important is Turkey for Russia?
Turkey is important for Russia because it is one of the countries that passess the Nabucco oil pipelines.
Now that Russia does not have serious allies in Europe (true?) due to the situation in Ukraine the Nabucco Stream was an important strategical tool.
" Our oil does not need to pass from Ukraine ... we have Turkey".
Do you still have Turkey?
Do you want Turkey?
Turkey is the number one tourist destination for Russians (or it was until today?).
Do you affort to lose another partner?
You didn't know that the majority of population of Turkey are illiterate Muslims who support islamic extremism? Really you were shocked for what it happend? You didn't know that the rulling party in Turkey is Islamistic? From the time you knew this why everyone in Russia supports economically Turkey? And when I say everyone I mean also the average Russian that enjoys the all inclusive benefits of the luxurious Turkish hotels?
