"We do not ask the Russians questions": the Turks explained the supply of weapons to Kiev


The Turks have long been establishing multilateral cooperation with the Ukrainians in terms of arms supplies. At the same time, Ankara does not ask questions to countries that trade arms with regimes that are not friendly to Turkey itself. This was stated by the head of the Turkish diplomatic department Mevlut Cavusoglu on May 31 during a working trip to Athens.


The minister noted that Ankara signed agreements on the supply of weapons with Kiev many years ago. Turkey sells quality weapons, Ukraine buys them for its own needs. This is pure business, and Russia should not make claims, because Moscow is also supplying its weapons to Bashar al-Assad.

Syria shot down our plane with a Russian missile. Russia supplies missiles to Syria and many other countries. We have never expressed a complaint about this.

- stressed Cavusoglu.

Two years ago, Ankara signed the first agreement with Kiev on the sale of Bayraktar TB2 unmanned aerial vehicles, which showed their best side during the armed conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as in the SAR and Libya. At the moment, the Ukrainian side is preparing to receive another batch of UAVs from its Turkish partners. Meanwhile, Ukraine has proposed to Turkey to establish a joint production of combat drones on Ukrainian territory.

    There is only one way out here, to immediately create such new complexes and air defense systems that will most effectively shoot down Bayraktars and other UAVs of our potential adversaries even at distant approaches, even before these UAVs can use their weapons, this is quite within our power and this you need to do it quickly, without a long buildup and unnecessary chatter !!!

      And who said that they are not there and urgently needed to be created? They are and they must be actively used, and not as the Armenians did. Or the Syrians. To combat drones for the same shells, to create cheaper missiles. In a real war, everything is easier, the center is destroyed advanced control and truncated. Drones do not fly.

        I did not say that we do not have them, I said that they need to be constantly improved, modernized and improved, increasing their effectiveness in the fight against enemy drones of all kinds and types !!!

          This goes without saying, someone argues. This is called progress, however. And standing still in this difficult business means death. But not with rockets alone you can spread rot on the drones of a flock, a rocket is an expensive pleasure. To develop amy weapons, bring them to compactness and perfection. . And it seems like there are successes in this direction.

            I completely agree with this, only an integrated approach in countering drones will ultimately give the necessary positive result that we need for reliable protection against air strikes.

    The Turks are cunning, they pretend that the weapons purchased in Russia do not belong to Russia, but from aliens. They know for sure that it is not Russian, so they do not ask where the missiles come from. And the Turks sell everything that is Turkified and no one needs to repent.

    - Cheaper than those fools, which bullets "Shell", is nowhere to be found! wink They are "headless"! They are run "through ... oops"! (not a joke) So what effect can there be ?!

    In a real war, everything is simpler, the center of forward control and truncation are destroyed. Drones do not fly.

    - Aha: a thermonuclear strike on the capital - and truncated! wassat
