Erdogan is using Ukraine and Russia’s issue on its advantage
Tensions between Ukraine and Russia is increasing, and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is taking advantage on this situation to sell his country’s weapons sale through a proposal for increasing cooperation between the Turkish and Ukrainian defense industries
Many observers mocked at Erdogan’s handling of the issue, to grab military sales for its mediocre weapons while at the same time making sure not to draw Kremlin’s wrath.
Many fear that increasing tensions between Russia and Ukraine could lead to full-blown war
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, in his statement clearly reflected Moscow’s readiness to go to any extent for preventing Kyiv from retaking control over separatist-controlled territory in eastern Ukraine.
