“We protect ourselves from the USA”: Turkish politician on the reasons for the purchase of S-400


In Turkey, disputes about the need to use Russian S-400 air defense systems do not subside. Due to the rampant COVID-19, the introduction of these systems was suspended, and the opinions of local politicians about the importance of the S-400 for the country's armed forces were divided.


The Turkish edition of Yeni Akit argues the chairman of the Rodina party Dogu Perinchek that the anti-aircraft systems will be used - he carefully monitors this topic and discusses the situation with the authorities.

Some policy from the RNP (Republican People's Party) claim that $ 2,5 billion spent on the purchase of the S-400 from Russia was wasted. However, Perincek disagrees. He says that Turkey thus protects itself from the United States and its allies in the Middle East and the Mediterranean:

The threat to Turkey is from American bases east of the Euphrates, as well as from the eastern Mediterranean. Against the Republic of Turkey, the United States and its allies - Israel, Greece, Southern Cyprus - conduct military exercises. Trying to prevent the "Turkish stream" in the Black Sea. The American and Israeli threats are everywhere. Therefore, we are forced to defend ourselves, and we really need the S-400 - their use is beneficial strategically and economically.

      Oh, just do not talk about the relations of the allies. Russia and Belarus as an example to you.

        Did I say somewhere that everything is wonderful with Lukashenko? Anyway, they often have allies, while everything is quiet and it is beneficial for them, as it comes to business, they disappear somewhere.
        It’s just funny to read such news, they told us so much about NATO unity, about “the whole world is with us,” and Russia “all the allies fled” and how indicative it is. winked

    But what about the bases on the territory of Turkey itself?
    And in general, there is not a single country that would benefit from an alliance with the States. They also threw England over the knee more than once. Today, Pakistan is also looking towards Russia ...

          Ask at least once something intelligibly to count on a concrete answer to your inarticulate questions. I wait, but not for long. I have to go to work tomorrow to work. Weak?

    The world has gone mad .... "allies" are at war, "enemies" are trading among themselves, and so almost all countries with all but North Korea. Probably, they certainly do not trade with enemies.
