Update VIDEOs-WAR? Russia Fires at Turkish Ship >After Russian Jet Downed

Nato Holds Emergency Session After Turkey Shoots Down Russian Warplane on Syrian Border

Daily Mail UK, 24 November 2015



Nato will hold an emergency session today after Turkey shot down a Russian warplane it claimed had entered its air space.


The North Atlantic Council (NAC) will meet in Brussels in response to the downing of the aircraft by Nato member Turkey.

UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond told MPs that officials were urgently seeking details about the incident from Ankara and Moscow.





A Middle East expert has warned that the skies over Syria and Turkey are an "incredibly crowded air space"


Nato spokeswoman Carmen Romero said the meeting was called at the request of Turkey.
"The aim of this extraordinary NAC meeting is for Turkey to inform allies about the downing of a Russian airplane," she said.
"Nato is monitoring the situation closely. We are in close contact with Turkish authorities."

Ankara claimed its F-16s shot down the Russian plane after it ignored repeated warnings over the violation of Turkish air space.

But Moscow said the Su-24 jet was downed by artillery fire while on a bombing mission in Syria and had not strayed across the border.



The Russian defence ministry statement said: "We are looking into the circumstances of the crash of the Russian jet. The Ministry of Defence would like to stress that the plane was over the Syrian territory throughout the flight."

Updating MPs on the incident, Mr Hammond chose his words carefully, saying that the jet was shot down "near the Turkish-Syrian border".
He said: "We are seeking further details urgently, both in Moscow and in Ankara. Clearly this is potentially a serious incident, but it wouldn't be wise to comment any further until we have got more certainty on the facts."

Video footage of the incident showed a plane on fire before crashing on a hill and two crew members apparently ejecting.
One of the crew members was dead upon landing, according to a spokesman for the rebel group that found him.

Jahed Ahmad, of the 10th Brigade in the Coast, said the crew members tried to land with their parachutes in Syrian government-held areas after they ejected, but came under fire from members of his group.
He added that rebels shot one of the pilots, who landed dead on the ground. The fate of the second pilot was not immediately known.

The group released a video showing gunmen standing around a blond pilot who had bruises on his face and appeared dead.
A voice on the video is heard saying "a Russian pilot", while another says: "The 10th Division has captured a Russian pilot. God is greatest."

Turkey has already complained about Russian incursions into its skies and last month Nato condemned the "unacceptable violations of Turkish air space by Russian combat aircraft".


The incident comes as David Cameron prepares to set out the case for RAF air strikes in Syria.
The Prime Minister will set out a plan on Thursday to tackle Islamic State - also known as Isil, Isis or Daesh - in its Syrian stronghold.
He told the Commons on Monday that he would let MPs consider his proposals over the weekend before a debate and vote on British military involvement in Syria.

"I do not want anyone to feel that they are being bounced into a decision," he said. "I want this House to take the decision deliberately, but we should not take too long over it."


UPDATE

‘Shot Dead’ as They Parachuted to The Ground: Militants Claim to Have Gunned Down Two Russian Pilots Who Ejected From Their Aircraft as Video Emerges of Rebels Chanting 'Allahu Akbar' Over One Body

  • Turkish army has shot down a Russian Sukhoi Su-24 war plane near its Syrian border, officials have confirmed
  • Syrian border rebels have now claimed to have shot dead the pilots as they parachuted from the destroyed aircraft
  • Alpaslan Celik, a brigade commander, boasted that his 'comrades opened fire into the air and they died in the air'
  • Russian jet had violated Turkish air space and ignored ten warnings in five minutes, Ankara military officials said
  • Vladimir Putin called Turkey's decision to shoot down the plane 'a stab in the back by the accomplices of terrorists'



A video has been released showing Syrian rebels cheering and shouting 'Allahu Akbar' over the dead body of one of the pilots of the Russian jet shot down by Turkey (bottom left). He has since been identified as Sergei Rumyantsev (inset), a major at Shagol air force base near Chelyabinsk, in south-central Russia.



The two-pilot Sukhoi Su-24 jet was shot down by F-16 fighter planes just after 9am this morning (bottom right), after it violated Turkish airspace and ignored nearly a dozen warnings by the military, Ankara officials said.

Meanwhile, a furious President Vladimir Putin has refuted that the jet ever left Syrian airspace, and instead accused Turkey of funding ISIS, and using its military to protect the terrorist organisation.

A second video then emerged claiming to show a separate rebel group blowing up a helicopter sent by Russian forces to rescue the surviving pilot (the rocket launcher used is pictured top). Moscow said a Russian soldier was killed in the crash.

Turkmen rebels today claimed to have shot dead two Russian pilots in midair as they tried to parachute to safety from their downed aircraft after it was destroyed by Turkey for an airspace violation.

In the wake of its destruction, a deputy commander in a Syrian Turkmen brigade was interviewed clutching what he claimed was a piece of the airmens' parachutes while boasting that his men opened fire as the Russians floated to the ground.

Turkish F-16 fighter planes shot down the Russian two-pilot Sukhoi Su-24 this morning after it violated Turkish airspace and ignored nearly a dozen warnings by the army, Turkish officials claimed.
Alpaslan Celik, the leader of one of the local rebel groups, spoke near the Syrian village of Yamadi, following the downing. He stated:

'Both of the pilots were retrieved dead. Our comrades opened fire into the air and they died in the air.'

Celik is seen holding what are said to be parts of a parachute used by one of the pilots who ejected when a Russian jet was blown up


The extraordinary downing of the plane by a NATO member has further compromised relations between the myriad of players embroiled in the Syrian conflict.

Meanwhile, Syrian rebels were seen chanting 'Allahu Akbar' over the dead body of one of the Russian pilots in shocking footage released shortly before a separate group blew up a Putin chopper sent to find survivors.

A video filmed by rebels in Syria's Turkomen Mountains, an area which has been the cause of recent tensions between Turkey and Russia, sees ethnic Turkish anti-government fighters celebrating and cheering as they discover the body of the pilot.

The video, posted on Twitter by a man believed to be a Syrian-Turkmen rebel soldier, shows at least a dozen men surrounding the corpse of the pilot, dressed in Russian military fatigues, and some are heard shouting 'Allahu Akbar' – 'God is great'.

Both pilots ejected themselves from the jet and a separate video shows them parachuting down to the ground as fighters fire at them.

A spokesman for the rebel group said the dead pilot, who can be seen covered in bruises and burns in the video, was already deceased when he landed, and that they are conducting search operations in the area to find the second crew member.

The pilot in the video has since been identified as Sergei Rumyantsev, a major at Shagol air force base near Chelyabinsk, east of the Ural mountains in south-central Russia.

Sergei Rumyantsev, a major at Shagol air force base near Chelyabinsk, is said to be one of the Russian pilots shot down by Turkish F-16s





Footage of Sergei Rumyantsev was followed by the release of a second video, claiming to show members of the U.S.-trained Free Syrian Army firing an anti-tank missile and destroying the helicopter sent by Russian forces to rescue the surviving pilot


Jahed Ahmad of the 10th Brigade in the Coast, a group affiliated with the Free Syrian Army, said his group would consider exchanging the body of the Russian pilot for prisoners held by the Syrian government.

The area where the plane went down is mainly populated by Turkmens - Syrians citizens, but ethnic Turks - and is the target of a current Syrian government offensive, where President Bashar al-Assad's ground troops are supported by Russian airstrikes.

The United States believes Russia's incursion into Turkish airspace likely lasted only a matter of seconds before Turkey shot down the warplane, while Obama today laid blame with Putin's insistence on targeting moderate groups fighting the al-Assad regime instead of ISIS.

He said: 'I do think that this points to an ongoing problem with the Russian operations. In the sense that they are operating very close to a Turkish border, and they are going after moderate opposition that are supported by not only Turkey but a wide range of countries.'
He added such mistakes were less likely to occur if Russia directed its focus towards attacking ISIS.








More pictures have surfaced of items said to have been recovered by Syrian rebels when a Russian plane was shot down by Turkish forces






Aim: A video claimed to be filmed by the Syrian Free Army shows a rebel fighter firing a tank missile at a helicopter





Fire: The Syrian Free Army claims that this is the moment when they destroyed a Russian army helicopter which had been sent on a search and rescue mission to save the two Russian pilots of the jet which was shot down by Turkey this morning





Destroyed: A rebel spokesman said troops fired a Tao missile that destroyed the helicopter after it landed and its pilots had left the aircraft


The Turkomen Mountains is controlled by several insurgent groups, who are not allied with ISIS, including al-Qaida's branch in Syria, the Nusra Front, The Free Syrian Army and the 10th Brigade in the Coast, that consists of local Turkmen fighters.

The Turkish army said the pilots of the Russian jet had been warned 'ten times in the space of five minutes' before the plane was shot down, a statement which has since been backed up by the U.S. military.

'We were able to hear everything that was going on, these (communications) were on open channels,' Baghdad-based military spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said, confirming that ten warnings were issued by Turkish pilots without response.

He added it was not immediately clear on which side of the Turkish-Syrian border the Russian jet had been flying, and it would take some time to analyse data before arriving at that determination.

Meanwhile, President Putin called Turkey's decision to down the plane a 'stab in the back' by the accomplices of ISIS, as his Defence Ministry still claims the jet was flying over Syria and never entered Turkish airspace.

'The loss we suffered today came from a stab in the back delivered by accomplices of the terrorists,' President Putin said, speaking at a meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan in Sochi, Russia, on Thursday afternoon.

'We will never tolerate such atrocities as happened today and we hope that the international community will find the strength to join forces and fight this evil,' Putin said.

The president warned that 'today's tragic event will have serious consequences for Russian-Turkish relations', shortly before Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov cancelled tomorrow's visit to Turkey, where the two nations were due to discuss Syria.

Putin boldly claimed that Turkey has been buying oil from ISIS, funding the terrorist group, and accused Ankara of protecting the jihadists with the country's military, Moscow-funded RT reports.

In a separate incident, sources told AFP in Beirut that a Russian helicopter in the same area in Syria was destroyed by rebels on the ground after being forced to make an emergency landing following damage from rebel fire.

A Syrian military source told AFP that a unit of Syrian regime special forces saved the dozen-strong Russian commando team and brought them back to the regime stronghold of Latakia.

Conflicting stories: Turkey claims they shot the plane down as it was violating the country's airspace after the pilots ignored 'ten warnings in the space of five minutes', but Russia says the jet was in Syrian airspace





Flight: This map shows the route of the Russian jet (shown in red), based on data released by the Turkish government, including where it violated Turkish airspace, and the area in the Turkomen Mountains where it crashed



Just hours before the Russian jet was shot down, Ankara called for a U.N Security Council meeting to discuss attacks on Turkmen areas in Syria, which have forced some 1,700 civilians to flee their homes in the last three days, according to Turkish officials.

It followed a summoning of Moscow's ambassador on Friday, when Ankara demanded an immediate end to the Russian military operation near the Syrian border saying the Russian actions did not 'constitute a fight against terrorism' but the bombing of civilians.

Ambassador Andrey Karlov was warned during the meeting that the Russian operations could lead to serious consequences, the ministry said.

Turkish officials said the Russian plane was first warned that it was within ten miles of the Turkish border, and the aircraft then crossed over Turkish territory, adding that a second plane had also approached the border and been warned.

'The data we have is very clear. There were two planes approaching our border, we warned them as they were getting too close,' a senior Turkish official said.

'We warned them to avoid entering Turkish airspace before they did, and we warned them many times. Our findings show clearly that Turkish airspace was violated multiple times. And they violated it knowingly,' the official said.

NATO allies will hold an 'extraordinary' meeting later today at Ankara's request to discuss Tuesday morning's incident, an alliance official said.

'At the request of Turkey, the North Atlantic Council will hold an extraordinary meeting at 4pm. The aim of this extraordinary NAC is for Turkey to inform Allies about the downing of a Russian airplane,' the official said.

The North Atlantic Council consists of ambassadors from the 28 NATO member states.
A Turkish military statement, issued before it was confirmed that the jet was Russian, said the plane entered Turkish airspace over the town of Yayladagi, in Hatay province.

'On 24 Nov., 2015 at around 09.20am(7.20am GMT), a plane whose nationality is not known violated the Turkish airspace despite several warnings (ten times within five minutes) in the area of Yayladagi, Hatary.
'Two F-16 planes on aerial patrol duty in the area intervened against the plane in question in accordance with the rules of engagement at 09.24am(7.24am GMT).'

The Turkish Army later released a radar analysis image which they say tracks the movement of the Russian Sukhoi Su-24 jet, showing where it entered Turkish air space, and where it went down.

'This isn't an action against any specific country. Our F-16s took the necessary steps to defend Turkey's sovereign territory,' a Turkish official told news agencies on condition of anonymity.

Russia's Defence Ministry said in a statement that they are looking into the circumstances of the crash of the Russian jet.
'The Ministry of Defence would like to stress that the plane was over the Syrian territory throughout the flight.'

The statement also claimed that the Sukhoi-24 had been shot down from the ground at the altitude of 6,000metres (3.73m).

Vladimir Putin's spokesman called the downing of the Su-24 warplane a 'very serious incident' but declined to comment further until more facts emerged.
'It is just impossible to say something without having full information,' said Dmitry Peskov.

Russia's government-run TV Zvezda claimed the warplane had been in Syrian airspace the entire time, which allegedly could be proven by 'control systems', a ministry spokesman said.

'It's the kind of thing we're been warning about,' said Ian Kearns, director of the European Leadership Network think-tank in London.
'And it's a direct military engagement between a NATO country and Russia, so I think it's a serious incident in anybody's book.'

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has spoken with the chief of military staff and the foreign minister about the developments on the Syrian border, the prime minister's office said in a statement, without mentioning the downed jet.
He has ordered the foreign ministry to consult with NATO, the United Nations and related countries on the latest developments, his office said.

DOWNING OF RUSSIAN JET ADDS TO 'TOXIC ****TAIL' IN THE REGION, EXPERTS SAY

Turkey shooting down a Russian jet on Tuesday morning is just proof of the 'toxic ****tail' of dangers in the region which could erupt into crisis with devastating effect, an expert has warned.

Middle East expert Shashank Joshi, from the Royal United Services Institute, said the skies over Syria and Turkey are an 'incredibly crowded airspace', with planes from both nations and members of the US-led coalition against IS - including the UK - operating.

Turkey, a Nato member, has already complained about Russian incursions into its skies and last month the alliance condemned the 'unacceptable violations of Turkish airspace by Russian combat aircraft'.

Mr Joshi said: 'The situation is dangerous because Russia is quite probably deliberately probing Turkish airspace both for military reasons and political reasons.'

The Russians will be testing the military responses of the Nato member, but also carrying out the same 'psychological intimidation' tactics used in the Baltic and North Atlantic, he suggested.

The combination of the crowded airspace, Russian probing tactics and the diplomatic tensions create a 'real toxic ****tail that can easily erupt into crisis', he warned.

Ankara will be 'furious' at the incursion and Russia can expect Nato to strike a 'tough' note, but behind the scenes there will be intense diplomatic efforts to calm tensions.
But if Moscow responds in a provocative way, there is a risk of the crisis escalating.

Mr Joshi warned: 'These things always proceed in a very unpredictable fashion. We have seen how conflicts can begin when there are large alliances.'




Ejected: The two pilots of the Russian Sukhoi-24 jet can be seen parachuting down after the plane was hit



Last month, Turkish jets shot down an unidentified drone that had also violated Turkey's airspace.
Turkey and Russia have long been at loggerheads over the Syrian conflict, with Ankara seeking Assad's overthrow while Moscow does everything to keep him in power.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was due to visit Turkey on Wednesday to discuss Syria, in a trip arranged before this incident, which he abruptly canceller on Tuesday afternoon. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan is meanwhile expected to visit Russia for talks with Putin in late December.

Russia's participation in the Syrian peace process talks in Vienna, the co-operation on the UN Security Council resolution and meetings between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Nato leaders provided signs of a renewed diplomatic engagement between Moscow and the West in recent weeks.

French President Francois Hollande will meet Mr Putin on Thursday and Russia has offered co-operation in the fight against IS following the atrocities in Paris and the downing of a Russian passenger jet in Egypt.

RUSSIAN AIRFORCE'S 'BASIC' EMERGENCY KIT... A MACHETTE

By DARREN BOYLE FOR MAILONLINE

Russian pilots operating out of the Latakia air base in Syria have a small escape kit to help them on the ground if they are forced to eject from their jet.

In the Sukhoi Su-24 Fencer, the escape kit is located in a small compartment underneath the ejector seat.
The escape kit contains an inflatable raft, in case the aircraft is brought down over water. There is also a radio beacon which will relay the pilot's location to any potential rescue aircraft.

The pilot also has a radio, signal flares, a machete and a knife. It is likely the pilot will have a sidearm to defend himself.

JIHADIST ISSUE WARNING OF PARIS-STYLE ATTACK ON MOSCOW TUBE

A sinister warning of a terrorist attack has been issued to users of Moscow's underground rail system, it was revealed today.

A wifi system available on the metro network - the busiest outside Asia - flashed up the message: 'Paris was yesterday, Moscow is today.'
The threat came after the possible hacking of the internet system on 20 November, but details were only revealed today.

A number of passengers complained to police about the menacing threat, which was registered on the north-south Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya line, which passes close to the Kremlin in central Moscow.

Denis Savin told major Russia media outlet LifeNews, which disclosed the threat,: 'I took my tablet and tried to connect to the wifi but instead of the authorisation page I saw a black flag with an Arabic sign and words in Russian above it.
'It read: 'Paris was yesterday, Moscow is today!'

He and his friend Alexei Komov were 'worried' about the message and approached a policeman at Prospekt Mira station, he said.
They saved a screenshot and passed it to police.
'Several similar reports from passengers were received on the same day by other police stations,' reported pro-Kremlin LifeNews.

Police are checking how the shocking messages were seen by travellers on the metro, which carries 6.75 million people a day on its 203 miles, one of the most efficient underground train systems in the world.

RUSSIA-TURKEY WAR 'MOST LIKELY'

The chances of war between Russia and Turkey - which has the might of NATO behind it - are now 'most likely', claimed one of Moscow's most respected military analysts.
Pavel Felgengauer said Ankara is seeking to protect a zone in northern Syria controlled by its allies, the Turkmens.

After the downing of the Russian warplane on Tuesday, Moscow must either accept this zone 'or start a war with Turkey' which it could only win by going nuclear, he said.

'It is most likely that it will be war,' said Felgenhauer, an analyst for liberal Novaya Gazeta.
'In other words, more fights will follow when Russian planes attack Turkish aircraft in order to protect our bombers. It is possible that there will be fights between the Russian and Turkish navies at sea.'

He warned: 'Probably the Turks will shut down the Bosphorus - and other NATO countries will join this conflict.
'And in such a conflict Russia has very little chance unless it uses its nuclear weapons.'

The Bosphorus is the only channel by which Russia's Black Sea fleet can reach the Mediterranean.

Update re: VIDEOs-WAR? Russia Fires at Turkish Ship >After Russian Jet Downed

Putin Takes His Revenge: Russia Unleashes Heavy Bombardment on Region Held by Turkmen Rebels who Chanted ‘Allahu Akbar’ Over the Dead Body of Pilot Shot Down by Turkish F-16

  • Russia has retaliated against rebel forces who 'shot and killed' one of the pilots of the jet downed by Turkey
  • One of the two pilots of jet downed by Turkey rescued in 12-hour operation and taken to Russian base
  • Pilot, identified as Cpt Konstantin Murahtin, and fallen co-pilot, Lt. Col. Oleg Peshkov to be given state honours
  • Audio recording of warnings sent out by Turkey on open channels and confirmed by U.S. military released
  • Putin called the incident a 'stab in the back by accomplices of terrorists' and accused Turkey of supporting ISIS
  • NATO chief called for 'diplomacy and de-escalation' after emergency meeting of member nations on Tuesday
Daily Mail UK, 25 November 2015





This is the recording of the Turkish army warning a Russian military jet that it was violating its airspace before shooting it down. A voice can be heard telling the Russian pilots that they are approaching Turkish airspace, telling them to change their course immediately.

The warnings sent to the Russian pilots from Turkey were broadcast in English and on open channels and later confirmed by U.S. military stationed in Baghdad. The recording has emerged as Moscow reports that one of the two pilots, who both parachuted from the flaming wreckage of the Sukhoi SU-24 fighter as it went down near the Syrian border, survived.


Russian forces launched at least a dozen airstrikes against insurgent-held areas near the Turkey-Syria border where the Sukhoi SU-24 fighter jet was shot down by the Turkish army yesterday.

Heavy bombardment hit areas controlled by Turkmen rebels, the group claiming to have shot and killed one of the pilots of the Russian jet as he parachuted out of the flaming wreckage, and attempted to kill his co-pilot.

The rebel group released a video showing them cheering and chanting 'Allahu Akbar' as they discovered the body of Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Peshkov, who will now receive Russia's highest state honour posthumously.

President Vladimir Putin today confirmed that the surviving pilot, identified as Captain Konstantin Murahtin, had been rescued by Russian military in a 12-hour long joint operation with Syrian government forces, and taken to a Russian air base.

Retaliation: At least 12 Russian air strikes hit Turkoman Mountains in Latakia's northern countryside, the rebel-controlled area where the Sukhoi SU-24 fighter jet was shot down by the Turkish army yesterday






Honoured: This image, released by Turkmen rebels, claims to show the body of one of the Russian pilots, today identified as Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Peshkov, allegedly shot and killed as he parachuted from the flaming jet


Alive and well: One of the two Russian pilots of the Sukhoi SU-24 fighter shot down by Turkey near the Syrian border, identified as Captain Konstantin Murahtin, has been rescued in a 12-hour operation, and taken to a Russian air base



At least 12 air strikes hit Latakia's northern countryside as pro-government forces clashed with fighters from al Qaeda's Nusra Front and Turkmen insurgents in the Jabal Akrad and Jabal Turkman areas, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
A commander of the Turkmen, ethnic Turks who are Syrian citizens, said missiles fired from Russian warships in the Mediterranean were also hitting the area, as well as heavy artillery shelling.

Hassan Haj Ali, the head of Liwa Suqour al-Jabal, a rebel group operating in western Syria, also said there were fierce battles in the area, with Russian aircraft supporting pro-government forces.

Meanwhile, Foreign Secretary Sergey Lavrov branded the downing of the jet a 'planned provocation' by Ankara, but that Russia has 'no intention to go to war with Turkey.'

Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday that Moscow will re-consider relations with Ankara following the shooting down of the plane on the Turkey-Syria border on Tuesday, but he didn't say what specific measures Russia would take.

'We have serious doubts about this being an unpremeditated act, it really looks like a planned provocation,' Lavrov said at a press conference in Moscow.





Awards: Russian President Vladimir Putin, pictured today aduring a visit to the UralVagonZavod factory in Nizhny Tagil in the Ural mountains, has announced that the two pilots and the men involved in rescuing Cpt Murahtin will be given state honours





Lethal foe: Smoke rising from the Turkoman Mountains, the area in Latakia, Syria controlled by Turkmen rebels, the group claiming to have shot and killed one of the pilots of the Russian jet





Clashes: It is believed that the surviving Russian pilot, Captain Konstantin Murahtin, was captured by rebel forces in the area, and then rescued in the 12-hour joint operation which ended this morning


'We have no intention to go to war with Turkey. Our attitude to the Turkish people hasn't changed, we only have questions about the Turkish leadership.


'He also accused the Turkish government of supporting ISIS, saying that Russia had been made away of the terrorist group trading human organs on black markets in Turkey.

He told the press conference: 'We have received information that in certain areas of Turkey, where terrorists feel at home, there is even an established market for human organs which are smuggled by terrorists from Syria, and those are body parts of the murdered Syrians.'

He added that 'terrorists' have used Turkish territory to prepare attacks in other countries, but did not name specific groups or attacks.
Lavrov further accused Turkey of violating Greek air space 'some 1,500 times a year',adding that on the background of this, he did not see how Turkey could justify shooting down a Russian plane after what he claimed whats 'just 17 seconds of violation' of Turkish airspace.

As Putin confirmed that Cpt. Murahtin was 'saved', he announced that 'he and the other participants... including in the rescue operation will be awarded state honours.'

The plane's other pilot, Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Peshkov, who was reportedly killed by rebel forces as he parachuted to safety, will posthumously be given Russia's highest award for valour, the Hero of Russia medal, Putin said.

'For heroism, courage and bravery shown during the fulfilment of his military duties, Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Peshkov has been awarded the title of Hero of the Russian Federation (posthumously),' a presidential decree released by the Kremlin press service reads.

'Furthermore, for their courage, bravery, and selflessness in carrying out their military duties, Su-24 co-pilot Captain Konstantin Murahtin, who made it back to friendly territory following a successful search and rescue operation, and Naval Infantry Soldier Alexandr Pozynich, who was killed during the course of a rescue operation, were awarded the Order of Courage, Pozynich posthumously.

Putin's statement came after Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told Russian news agencies that Mr Akhmadulin is now 'safe and sound' at the air base.

'The operation ended successfully. The second pilot has been brought to our base. He is alive and well,' Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said.


'I would like to thank all our guys who worked at great risk all night and finished this job at around 3.40am (00.40am GMT),' Shoigu said in televised comments.

Earlier on Wednesday, Moscow's ambassador to France Alexander Orlov said one of the pilots was wounded, then killed on the ground by 'jihadists' after landing with his parachute.

He also denied Turkish government statements that the Russian plane was warned repeatedly about an air space violation, despite an audio recording of the warnings emerging on Wednesday.


A male voice, believed to be that of one of the Turkish F16 pilots, can be heard telling the Russians that they are approaching Turkish airspace, ordering them to change their course immediately.
The warnings sent to the Russian pilots from Turkey were broadcast in English and on open channels and later confirmed by U.S. military stationed in Baghdad.

'Turkish air force speaking. You are approaching Turkish air space. Change your heading south immediately.'

Although only one warning can be heard on the recording, the Turkish army said yesterday that the pilots of the Russian jet had been warned 'ten times in the space of five minutes' before the plane was shot down.

Turkish officials said the Russian plane was first warned that it was within ten miles of the Turkish border, and the aircraft then crossed over Turkish territory, adding that a second plane had also approached the border and been warned.

'The data we have is very clear. There were two planes approaching our border, we warned them as they were getting too close,' a senior Turkish official said.





Suspicious: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said he had 'serious doubts' that the downing of the Russian jet was an accident, adding that 'it really looks like a planned provocation'


'We warned them to avoid entering Turkish airspace before they did, and we warned them many times. Our findings show clearly that Turkish airspace was violated multiple times. And they violated it knowingly,' the official said.

A Turkish military statement said the plane entered Turkish airspace over the town of Yayladagi, in Hatay province at 9.20am Tuesday, and was later shot down, crashing in the Turkomen Mountains area in the Syrian province of Latakia.
This statement was later been backed up by a Baghdad-based spokesman for the U.S. military.

'We were able to hear everything that was going on, these (communications) were on open channels,' Colonel Steve Warren said, confirming that ten warnings were issued by Turkish pilots without response.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday said Turkey did not want any escalation with Russia over its downing of a Russian plane on the Syrian frontier but vowed to always defend Turkish borders.

'We have no intention to escalate this incident. We are just defending our security and the rights of our brothers[Turkmens in Syria],' Erdogan said in a televised speech in Istanbul, adding that no one should expect Turkey 'to remain silent' when its border security was violated.

Speaking at a business event in Istanbul, Erdogan said the Russian jet had been fired at while in Turkish airspace but had crashed inside Syria, although he said parts of it landed in Turkey and injured two Turkish citizens.

'We will continue our humanitarian efforts on both sides of the (Syrian) border. We are determined to take all necessary measures to prevent a new wave of immigration.'

Turkey has been angered by Russian air strikes in Syria targeting Turkmens near its border, who are Syrians of Turkish descent. It had repeatedly warned Russia over airspace violations since October and last week summoned the Russian ambassador to protest against the bombing of Turkmen villages.

Putin has said Russian planes had in no way threatened Turkey, but had merely been carrying out their duty to fight Islamic State militants inside Syria.
Erdogan dismissed that version of events.

'It has been said that they were there to fight Daesh,' he said of Russian air strikes, and using an Arabic acronym for ISIS.
'First of all, the Daesh terrorist organisation does not have a presence in this region of Latakia and the north where Turkmens are based. Let's not fool ourselves.'

He said Turkey had made a 'huge effort' to prevent an incident like the downing of the Russian aircraft, but that the limits of its patience had been tested.
Yesterday, Putin branded the shooting down of the aircraft a 'stab in the back committed by accomplices of terrorists', warning:

'The tragic event will have serious consequences for Russian-Turkish relations.'

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov scrapped a planned visit to Turkey Wednesday, and warned Russians against travelling to Turkey.
In an obvious attempt to cause maximum damage to Turkey's tourist industry, a vital part of the country's economy, he said the risk of attacks 'is no less of a threat than in Egypt.'


This refers to the ISIS terrorist attack last month when all 224 people onboard a Russian passenger jet - a majority of them tourists heading home after a holiday in the popular resort Sharm el Sheikh.

Russia's Moskva guided missile cruiser will now be stationed near Latakia, on Syria's Mediterranean border, and all bombers in Syria will now be escorted by fighters, Russian military spokesman General Sergei Rudskoi.

General Rudskoi added that the shooting down would have the 'the gravest consequences', and warned that 'all targets representing a potential threat to us will be destroyed,' he warned.

This statement was backed up on Wednesday by defence minister Shoigu, who revealed Russia is deploying its most hi-tech air defence system to its airbase in Syria

'The S-400 anti-aircraft missile system will be deployed to the Hmeimim airbase,' said Shoigu.
Moscow is also beefing up the number of fighter jets deployed in Syria.

Shoigu personally travelled to Egypt for talks with the Cairo government, leading to a commitment for joint military and anti-terrorism exercises between the two countries.

'We know well how acute the problem of terrorism is for Egypt. It is alarming that the ISIS affiliate so-called Wilayat Sinai - on whose hands is the blood of hundreds of innocent people, including our compatriots who died in the air disaster - has been operating for a year now,' said Shoigu.
'We are ready to work together closely to fight this evil.'

Attacking the West, he said: 'The Arab Spring left a mass of unresolved problems.'
It 'gave rise to ISIS, which has become stronger and is seeking to seize new territories outside Syria and Iraq so as to set up its own caliphate there.'
Meanwhile, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the military alliance stood by member Turkey after the incident, but echoed appeals for calm from other world leaders as fears grow of clashes between coalition and Russian planes in the skies over Syria.

'We stand in solidarity with Turkey and support the territorial integrity of our NATO ally, Turkey,' Stoltenberg said after an emergency meeting of all 28 members requested by Ankara.
'Diplomacy and de-escalation are important to resolve this situation,' added.

His sentiment was echoed by the President of the United States, who placed partial blame on both parties for the incident.

President Barack Obama said that although the U.S. believes Russia's incursion into Turkish airspace likely lasted only a matter of seconds before Turkey shot down the warplane, he laid blame with Putin's insistence on targeting moderate groups fighting the al-Assad regime instead of ISIS.

He said: 'I do think that this points to an ongoing problem with the Russian operations. In the sense that they are operating very close to a Turkish border, and they are going after moderate opposition that are supported by not only Turkey but a wide range of countries.'

He added such mistakes were less likely to occur if Russia directed its focus towards attacking ISIS.

World leaders are approaching the issue with caution and worry, with German Chancellor Angela Merkel saying the downing of a Russian warplane may have 'further aggravated the situation in Syria.'
Merkel told lawmakers in parliament on Wednesday that 'we have to do everything now to avoid a further escalation,' adding that she had spoken to Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in a telephone call Tuesday.

She said that only a long-term political solution will end the conflict in Syria. She says 'there is no other way that will bring us closer to a lasting solution.

Update Re: VIDEOs-WAR? Russia Fires at Turkish Ship >After Russian Jet Downed

Turkey Warns its Patience With Russia 'Has a Limit'
>>After Putin Warship Fired Warning Shots at Fishing Vessel

  • Ankara accuses Moscow of 'exaggerated' reaction to naval confrontation
  • Russian destroyer fired warning shots at fishing vessel to avoid collision
  • Turkish minister accused Putin of using Syrian strikes to prop up Assad
Daily Mail UK, 14 December 2015


Turkey has warned its patience with Russia 'has a limit' after Moscow's 'exaggerated' reaction to a weekend naval incident between the two countries.

A Russian destroyer fired warning shots at a Turkish vessel in the Aegean on Sunday to avoid a collision and summoned the Turkish military attache over the incident.

'Ours was only a fishing boat, it seems to me that the reaction of the Russian naval ship was exaggerated,' Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said.
'Russia and Turkey certainly have to re-establish the relations of trust that we have always had, but our patience has a limit.'

The incident is likely to heighten tensions between the two nations who are at odds over Syria and Turkey's downing of a Russian warplane last month.

Cavusoglu said Russia had already 'put itself in a ridiculous position' with accusations by President Vladimir Putin that Turkey had shot down the jet to protect oil supplies from ISIS.

'No-one believed it' he told Italian daily newspaper Corriere della Sera in an interview.
He also criticised Russia's military intervention in Syria, saying it was aimed at propping up the regime of President Bashar Al Assad, not combating ISIS.

'Unfortunately Russia is not in Syria to fight terrorists,' he said, adding that only 8 per cent of its air strikes had been aimed at ISIS while 92 per cent were against other groups hostile to Assad.

Cavusoglu also said air strikes were not sufficient to defeat Islamic State and soldiers on the ground were necessary, according to the interview.

On Friday, Putin vowed to further modernize Russian arsenals and warned that his military forces in Syria would 'immediately destroy' any target threatening them - a strong warning to Turkey.

Speaking at a meeting with the top military brass, Putin named 'strengthening of the combat potential of strategic nuclear forces and the implementation of space defence programs' as a key priority.
Without naming Turkey, the hardline president said the military should respond in full force to any 'further provocation'.

He said the Russian military base in Syria has been beefed up with additional aircraft and air defence weapons.
'I order you to act in the toughest way,' Putin said.
‘Any targets threatening the Russian groups of forces or our land infrastructure should be immediately destroyed.’
