Moscow warns Ankara of “inevitable consequences” for attack on Su-24

According to the Russian data, the plane did not violate Turkey’s airspace as it was flying in Syria’s airspace and was shot down over Syria.

Kremlin stresses that Russia is not threatening Turkey with military consequences for shooting down Su-24 combat aircraft, but warned of “inevitable consequences“.

…of course, I would not [speak about it] — and the president, in fact, was not talking about any military implications and we should proceed from that,” the Russian president’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
The president refrained from such statements, but at the same time, of course, he stressed inevitability of consequences after such unfriendly actions of the Turkish side,” he said.
