“It really now is a question of Euro-Atlantic security. Because the security of the entire region, the Mediterranean – it is now under threat because of the actions of one person specifically” – said political analyst Boris Mezhuev, commenting on the policies of President Erdogan.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Defense Ministry, during a briefing, showed evidence that the Turkish authorities are buying oil from the militants of ISIS.  As proof, the Russian agency showed a video from the drones and some satellite photographs, which shows the entire journey of illegal movement of oil.
