The Russian Foreign Ministry recommends Russian citizens to abstain from visits to Turkey, head of the ministry Sergey Lavrov has told reporters today.

According to Lavrov, the threat of terror attacks from Turkey is not less than from Egypt. “It is necessary to point out that terror threats have been growing from the Turkish side… This even does not concern the accident that has taken place today,” the Russian foreign minister said.

Citing Russian President Vladimir Putin, the minister reminded that the Russian цфкplane was on an anti-terror mission there and was in the Syrian air space. “[Vladimir Putin’s] assessments are quite clear. The president said directly this would affect the Russian-Turkish relations,” Lavrov said.

As EADaily reported earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry announced today that the Su 24 plane shot near the Syrian-Turkish border was part of the Russian air force unit in Syria. Supposedly, the plane was attacked by an air-to-air missile. According to the ministry, the plane was at the height of 6,000 meters when attacked.
