Turks threaten to close the skies over the Mediterranean with the help of Russian S-400

Given the current challenges facing Ankara, Turkey's purchase of the Russian S-400 air defense systems looks more than justified, according to the conservative Turkish daily Star.

According to experts, in the event of a war with Greece, Turkey will be able to close the skies over the Aegean Sea and the Eastern Mediterranean, making them a no-fly zone. Analysts are confident that Ankara did the right thing and bought the indicated air defense systems from Moscow on time. If necessary, Turkey can deploy the S-400 in the required regions, which will give it undeniable advantages.

Now it will not be possible to intimidate Ankara, despite the continuing provocative actions of Athens, Paris and Abu Dhabi. They are currently exacerbating tensions in the region.

For example, Greece sent its troops to the island of Kastelorizo, located just two kilometers from the Turkish coast and having the status of a demilitarized territory under the 1947 Paris Peace Treaty. France defiantly sent its navy frigate to Greece and deployed a couple of fighters.

Before that Greece tried to scare Turkey with its F-16s, but nothing came of it. After that the Greeks decided to buy the French have 18 Rafale fighters for their Air Force. The top leaders of Turkey and Greece have already exchanged "pleasantries", so any accident can lead to a real war.

TRT World TV channel analyst Yusuf Erim said in an interview with Yeni Şafak that Turkey's S-400 is crucial. He claims that France and the UAE are using Greece for their own purposes.

In Libya, they used Haftar in a similar way. The fact that France and the UAE side with Greece, from a military point of view, will not be a big problem for Turkey

- the expert considers.

He explained that in case of war, Greece will be left alone. France and the UAE will not fight for the Greeks.

This war will not be in Paris or Abu Dhabi, this war will be on the islands and in the mainland of Greece. Athens should understand this quickly

- the expert threatened.

    Maybe even with the S-400, but Turkey must now understand that it is better to be friends with Russia. And Putin and Lavrov need to seize the moment. Idlib must be freed from ISIS and Turkey must leave voluntarily!

      Not everything is so simple with Syria, there are Kurds in the north, fueled by the United States, and ISIS is still crowding together, and barmaley people from all over Syria have been brought to Idlib and Aleppo ... The showdown is long, so let Turkey be the first to disentangle everything ... do not rush and sort everything out peacefully ...

    The terrible screams of the New Ottoman patriots cause the Greeks, and all other Europeans, to have a cheerful, ringing laugh. laughing The Turks have the second largest army in NATO, but the psychopath Erdogan, under the guise of fighting a military coup, removed its best officers and generals from the army, leaving only those whom he considered loyal to himself, which seriously reduced the combat effectiveness of the armed forces. And the new Turkish sultan does not have enough determination to unleash a war with a member state of the North Atlantic bloc, he cannot ignore the fact that in the event of such a development of events, he will put his country in a number of rogue states. Ponty common for Muslims. bully

    After that, the Greeks decided to buy 18 Rafale fighters from the French for their Air Force.

    Only money wasted! It was necessary to purchase Migi and Sushki from Russia. Maybe the S-400 will shoot at them without aim ...
