You have not followed Turkish foreign policy. You are free to believe what you want. Russia has always tried to push Turkey away from NATO. On top of that, they sold almost useless S-400s for billions of dollars.
I followed it since 25 years.
Yes, Russia try to cut NATO from Turkey. But what is your point in that?
What do you mean with, useless S-400 system!
If I want force Turkey to buy something, I would choose Helis, tanks, maybe jets . But not critical systems to a country WHO SHOOT DOWN MY FIGHTER JET AND KILL MY PILOT. Sounds illogical.

Aren't they honking about HIMARS and wiping out Turkiye's offensive capabilities within 48 hours?

That's one way to solve the birth rate problem, import more citizens.

The only other reason is if these became the government in Syria (0 chance) it would be closer to TR.

A legacy of Davutoglu's Arab opening.

These people when they realize they cannot live in Syria will have the language skills to move and work in TR, additional labour.

How odd is it to tax people to leave the country, no matter how small or big the fee is.

An interesting article about Turkish-Russian relations was published on the Armenian website. It's not in the English version, so I decided to translate it.


Russia takes into account the political and economic realities of the South Caucasus; Russia does not have the strength to get Turkey out of here. Dmitry Trenin, scientific director of the Institute of Military Economics and Strategy at the Higher School of Economics, stated this during a discussion on June 12.

“Russia is not an empire, we have come out of the imperial era, there is no struggle between Russia and Turkey for Transcaucasia.
Russia's relations with Turkey are very complex; they combine elements of cooperation and interaction with elements of competition, fortunately not yet hostility.

Russia strives to avoid hostility in every possible way, as does Türkiye. Today no one has any illusions about Turkey. But this country today is a very important counterparty to Russia.

Russia tried and partially succeeded in the difficult situation of 2020 related to the Karabakh conflict, to achieve not a quadrilateral, but a trilateral statement and agree to a formal military presence of Turkey within the framework of the Russian-Turkish mission.
Then it was possible, of course, to stigmatize Turkey, but what would Russian foreign policy gain from this? Another front?

Today Russia has fewer resources than the Russian Empire once had in its relations with the Ottoman Empire, and fewer resources than the USSR.

It is not that Russia agrees with the rise of Turkish influence, it simply views it as a geopolitical reality.

The future of the Russian Federation will depend on how, when and how the special military operation ends.
If Russia achieves victory, then it will be a completely different situation, and Russia will act much more actively in other areas, and Turkey knows this, which has taken its position regarding the war in Ukraine, and this position is not pro-Russian, Trenin emphasized.

Communist army monitors Turkish warships east of Taiwan strait center line for the first time

On June 4, a report from Taiwan's Ling Media stated that the Turkish Navy's Ada-class anti-submarine frigate, which had been patrolling near Japan since April, recently sailed through the Taiwan Strait. In response, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) swiftly deployed the Type 052D Lishui guided missile destroyer, shifting its surveillance area from the western side of the center line to the eastern side.

Good, they should continue protesting. By the end of this decade, Islamists will find themselves in a corner.

Recently, a bunch of Central Asian nations have cracked down on Islamists. It's only a matter of time until Türkiye does the same.

Their ideology is pure cancer, if you allow it to spread it will destroy your country. Look at Afghanistan and Pakistan. Look at how the US supported Islamists in Syria who ended up destroying the country and allowing the establishment of a PKK controlled zone.

Even Saudi Arabia has started to dial back on Islam.

I don't know for how long we can continue to ignore this threat.

Azerbaijan can deal with anybody they like.

Its geopolitics, its business.

Nothing personal.

These pro Palestine protestors are really trying their best to pull back my support.

They are becoming more of a nuisance.
