Russia is not going to war with Turkey after the latter downed its Su 24 warplane, but it cannot sit back either, Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov has said on November 25. 

The minister said the incident makes Russia reconsider its relationships and agreements with Turkey.

“As for the current stage of our relations and the agreements we had made with the Turkish government that is now in Ankara, as the president said, we will be reconsidering and rethinking everything that is happening in our relationships now,” Lavrov said.

In his words, Russia has not changed its attitude to the Turkish people, but Moscow has questions concerning the actions of the present leadership of Turkey. The minister explained that Russia is not going to hinder the cooperation of the Russian and Turkish companies.

“We do not want to create additional problems either to the Turkish producers and exporters that are not responsible for what happened, indeed, nor to our citizens, our companies that are cooperating with the Turkish companies,” the minister said.
