S-400 sanctions against Ankara close Turkish skies to Russian Su-35s


The United States imposed sanctions against Turkey, a NATO ally, for the purchase of the S-400 air defense system from Russia. The restrictions are still personal in nature and do not look very serious, but they will definitely have great consequences, both for Ankara, which ignored Washington, and for Moscow, writes the Greek online publication Pentapostagma.


The sanctions target Ismail Demir, President of the Defense Industry Directorate, and four other high-ranking Turkish officials. The United States made it clear to Turkey that they are not joking and the road to the West is a one-way street.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan understands that his eastern "pirouettes" have an expiration date. Position in the economy countries are deteriorating, the Turkish pound is down 25%, unemployment and poverty are on the rise, COVID-19 is raging and disrupting the health care system.

At the same time, Washington's actions are a very serious financial blow to the Russian military-industrial complex, since they close potential markets for Russian weapons systems. The Russian Foreign Ministry, represented by the head of the department, Sergei Lavrov, called the American sanctions illegal and contrary to international law.

If a country has so far wanted to buy the S-400, Su-35, or any other advanced Russian-made weapon system, it will now have to think twice as it will inevitably have to face US restrictions. Therefore, the sanctions are likely to close the Turkish skies to Russian Su-35s.

    I don’t understand how the American sanctions against Turkish officials threaten Russia?
    And about the "illegality" of the sanctions. Mr. Lavrov, is he a lawyer?

          And what does the international lawyer have to do with it?
          The UN can only impose legal sanctions for the genocide of some kind of people in the country, and not for a far-fetched reason, the sale of weapons and the protection of their manufacturers

            WHAT LAW governs sanctions? At least the UN, at least whose?
            You so confidently called the US sanctions against Turkey illegal that I was already delighted - they will explain everything to me now ...
            By the way, if the law is international, so Russia is putting it on international law ... Or is it?

              UN sanctions are governed by the UN Charter and the UN Security Council Charter. Since Russia has a veto right in the UN Security Council, such restrictive measures will naturally never pass. The United States still has a bad habit after the collapse of the USSR - like US laws apply almost to the whole world.

                Law, Karl.
                Law, name it!
                Contradicted by the sanctions of one state against another!
                If they contradict the Charter, then they are Non-statutory, and not - Illegal.
                As some commentators like to throw words.

                  They are just illegal. For this, the countries united in the UN after the Second World War so that this organization acted as a judge. The only source of legality in the World. And one very cool country believes that its laws should apply almost all over the world. This is, to put it mildly, lawlessness. So US restrictive measures are illegal.

                    Name the law.
                    Written by, name, number, or at least a link to the source ..
                    You get out all the time. Didn't answer for the fourth time.
                    So is there a law prohibiting the United States from supplying anything to Turkey?
                    Or directly say that you are scattering epithets that they blurted out for the red word ...
                    So?

                      Here, as it were, the question is not about the law prohibiting the supply of anything to Turkey, but about the American law, which prohibits other countries from buying Russian high-tech weapons.
                      Their business is who to supply what. But to impose restrictions on the basis of the supply of another country to third countries is somehow strange.
                      The fact that you include a fool and do not want to understand the obvious is your problem.
                      Only the UN can impose sanctions

    Don't be naive, gentlemen always play by the rules, and if they lose, they change those rules. And here it is even simpler - the rules are written only for the aborigines, the gentleman does not adhere to them, so for them everything is legal

    It is forgiven not to know that POUND and LIRA are one and the same in different languages ​​and there is only a tradition in using one or another word.

      Then why don't you call EURO - by some other name, for example - ECU? After all, it seems to be the same thing (I apologize for the tautology).

    Lyre - libre - troy pound - a play of languages ​​no more. And the pound is nothing more than Russian, in the English version it is still a pound. The Israeli pound was usually called the lira, just like the Egyptian pound can also be called the lira, and the Turkish lira the pound. Which language is closer to you ...

    Is it difficult to admit a mistake?
    Ecu is a shield, in Old French and has nothing to do with the euro, except that the Europeans used the European Currency Unit coins before the introduction of the euro, but this is an abbreviation in consonance with the old ecu and is also not a euro. But OYRO, YURO, EREO - yes, one name in different languages.
    The pound-pound is usually used in the name of the Anglo-Saxons and their colonies, Latin-speakers usually use the lyre. Initially, we are talking about weight.

    the Turkish pound dropped by 25%.

    I was in Turkey once, I saw the lyre, I didn't see the pounds.
