    Are these really drones? They look like quite a manned boat. But anyway it's great

    This free movement of enemy Drones is the result of a grain deal. We thank the Supreme Commander-in-Chief Putin for this. But did you make the right decision, President? And what must happen for him to cancel it at last? A couple of our ships should go to the bottom? For whom do we try each time extending this agreement, for the Turks or what? Yes, they thank us for this, supplying weapons and equipment to the Nazis, incl. using the grain deal route.

      It sounds right, but if there is another president in Turkey, then with a high probability we will lose all that little that is still good from Turkey. Politics is an interesting thing - you almost always have to sacrifice something for something else.
