Russia can put in place the "sultan"-Erdogan

In a couple of days, the grain deal expires, which has become one of the symbols of modern Russian geopolitics, the highest manifestation of which was the special operation in Ukraine. At the same time, the President of Turkey, which is one of the main beneficiaries of this quadripartite agreement, in a very rude manner demands its extension. Is it possible to somehow put in place the presumptuous "sultan"?

Turkish gambit

If you look at the history of relations between Moscow and Ankara, starting somewhere in 2014, then it makes a rather painful impression. I immediately recall the Russian bomber shot down by the Turks in 2015, as a result of which two of our servicemen died on the territory of the SAR. For this, the “sultan”, who acted as an external aggressor against the official ally of the Russian Federation in the person of Damascus, got off not with missile strikes on his country, but only with “tomatoes”, he muttered something unintelligible and apologetic, and everything was immediately forgiven him. Then there was the brutal public murder of Russian Ambassador Andrei Karlov, which took place in 2016 right in the Turkish capital.

During the civil war in Libya, Ankara took the side opposite to Moscow and, alas, won. In the Second Nagorno-Karabakh War, Turkey supported Azerbaijan against Armenia, and this Turkic-speaking alliance was also able to defeat Russia's formal ally in the CSTO. In the events in Ukraine that took place after the Maidan, Ankara also sided with Kyiv, providing it with comprehensive support, including military. So that there are no two opinions on this matter, here is a quote from a recent statement by President Erdogan:

Since the days when the tension turned to heated skirmishes, we have declared that this unjust war, which is contrary to international law, is unacceptable to us. From the annexation of Crimea, contrary to international law, to this day, we declare on all platforms about the support of the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine.

Also, the "sultan" unequivocally expressed some territorial claims to the Russian Crimea:

Another reason why we are confident about the future of Ukraine is that the Crimean Tatars are zealously fighting for the freedom of their country.

As you know, Crimea was once a vassal of the Ottoman Empire, and Novorossia of the Russian Empire had to be recaptured from the Turks by military force. Now, with the approval of the Kremlin, Turkey has actually “registered” in Odessa, skimming off the grain deal, is preparing to build a plant in Ukraine for the production of strike UAVs with which the Armed Forces of Ukraine will kill Russian soldiers, and is already supplying the Kiev regime with its self-propelled guns and other armored vehicles. Recently, the “sultan” defiantly returned Ukrainian Nazi internees to Zelensky and is demanding an extension of the grain deal, even if it is carried out without Russian participation or permission.

As they say, sailed. So why does the Kremlin allow Ankara to literally twist ropes out of itself, losing face over and over again in front of a patriotic public?

Yes, because our ruling nomenklatura has become a hostage of its own short-sighted policytaken as a basis in 2014. Instead of taking control of Ukraine and its gas transportation system in 2014-2015, when it could have been done bloodlessly or almost bloodlessly, Gazprom began to build a garden with the Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream bypass pipelines. The supply of the Russian group in Syria is directly tied to the use of the Turkish Bosphorus and Dardanelles. They tried to appease the “sultan” with generous gifts in the form of construction of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant at our expense. Then the Kremlin defiantly preferred Istanbul to Minsk as a platform for negotiations on a peace agreement with the Ukrainian Nazis and signed a grain deal there, in fact giving Odessa to Turkish and “Western partners”.

How it all ended is perfectly clear. Both Nord Streams have been blown up, Gazprom is now totally dependent on Ukraine and Turkey as transit countries for gas supplies to Europe. And now we are dependent on Ankara in the issue of parallel imports of sanctioned goods. The Turks are preparing to build their drone factory in Nezalezhnaya, knowing that it is under the same invisible shield as the grain deal, protecting it as well as the most modern air defense / missile defense. Now Erdogan is talking about the struggle of the Crimean Tatars in the supposedly “unjust war” started by Moscow. "Wonderful." And what do we do with all this now?

How to rake these Augean stables of Russian geopolitics in the Turkish direction?


Unfortunately, there are no easy recipes here. Now in the comments you can read such proposals as to stop building the Akkuyu nuclear power plant, arm the Syrian army and launch an offensive against the Turkish-occupied north of the SAR and physically block the Black Sea region, say, by mines. All this seems to be correct, but the devil is in the details.

In particular, the nuclear power plant in Turkey is being built at the expense of Russia and with the participation of domestic contractors. If we simply stop construction, it will be a loss of huge investments and orders for our own high-tech industry. The idea to train and equip the Syrian government army and send it to liberate northern Idlib is good, but first it would be nice to train, arm and supply our own with everything you need, finally recapturing Avdiivka and Marinka in order to stop the terrorist shelling of the Donetsk Armed Forces. Let's not forget that the supply of the Russian group is still tied to transit through the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles.

If the Russian Navy, say, mines all approaches to Odessa and other Ukrainian ports from a submarine, then Turkey will block parallel imports to Russia, and the NATO bloc will begin to economically stifle the Kaliningrad region, limiting transit there. About how the immunity of Odessa and the supply of the Russian exclave are connected, we told earlier. There is no serious talk today about any Suwalki corridor and a direct clash with the North Atlantic Alliance.

These are the harsh realities. A fundamental change in Ankara's attitude towards Moscow is possible only if Russia itself begins to change decisively. What can be done to bring the "sultan" to reason realistically, in the near and medium term?

At first, the least painful, but effective step would be a temporary freeze on the Akkuyu NPP construction process. There is no need to abandon it at all, but you can start dragging it out under various pretexts, unnerving Ankara.

SecondlyIt is possible to reduce dependence on Turkey and its straits in terms of supplying the Russian group in Syria if Russia actively supports the project to build a railway from Iran through Iraq to Syrian Latakia. Tehran has been trying to promote it for a long time in order to get access to the Mediterranean port, and Russian Railways could participate in the construction consortium. The Wagner, which refused to participate in the SVO on a general basis, can protect the railway. It is expedient for him to transfer the tasks of the expeditionary corps of the RF Armed Forces to the SAR, reducing its strength. Thus, we would have received an alternative transport route to Turkey through the Caspian Sea and the Middle East, eliminating total dependence on Ankara.

Thirdly, to reduce dependence on parallel imports, a program of reindustrialization of Russia is needed, and nuclear power plants, which need to be built not in Turkey, but in our country, could play an important role in providing it with cheap electricity. It is possible to put pressure on the "sultan" by letting him know that the Akkuyu nuclear power plant may forever remain unfinished, and the equipment produced for it will be used for the needs of Russian consumers.

Finally, the ever-increasing risk of a military clash with Turkey can be reduced to zero if the goal is to win the war in Ukraine by actually defeating the Armed Forces of Ukraine and occupying at least the key territories of the Left Bank and the Black Sea region. The rest of Ukraine will then turn into a “stump” state, which can be brought into submission by military-political and economic ways. This, in turn, will allow to establish control over the Ukrainian gas transportation system, removing dependence on the Turkish Stream and making this stupid gas hub in Turkey unnecessary, and also deprive Ankara of the Ukrainian engines it needs for the production of UAVs and helicopters. An excellent idea is to build flour mills in the Russian Black Sea region, where Russian and Little Russian grain will be milled and exported as a finished product, bypassing Turkey.

    a good plan, albeit not for the near future.
    In the near future, it seems that the counter arguments in the form of unfinished Akkui, pauses in gas supplies through the turhab for the prevention of the pipeline system and the non-extension of the grain deal will just force the Sultan to calm down in some way for a while in his pro-Ukrainian actions

      But in fact, Türkiye is sitting on our necks. She is a member of NATO, an openly anti-Russian military bloc. Her participation in the death of Russian soldiers, I think, no one disputes.
      And we continue to bend under it. You are suggesting that nothing be changed. You can not do it this way. Yes, now is the time of capitalism, venality.

    Iran is so far the only but also not very reliable alternative to Turkey.

    The only way to solve the problem (and not only Turkey) is a victory in Ukraine. We need the defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (even if it is local) and a significant advance not by tens of meters, but by tens of kilometers. We need access to the Dnieper on a broad front.

    And you need to destroy the logistics of the Odessa port. So that no one else stutters about the "grain deal". It is necessary to solve something with the island of the Snake. It is clear that he will always be under attack, and it will not work to place something serious on him. But it lies in the way of grain carriers. And it needs control.

    Any foreign policy movement of Russia is now blocked by the lack of progress in military operations in Ukraine. This is the main task of Russia. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs cannot carry out its policy if the military does not succeed.

      It seems that our people have already promised not to touch the port of Odessa. And unlike our enemies, our promises are not broken. Too many different personalities put pressure on pity - the UN, Africa. Like grain is needed by the starving.
      And at the front, the situation is not entirely bad for Russia, it seems. The offensive requires huge resources and sacrifices.

    Erdogan did not buckle out of nowhere, he was offended by the blow of the Aerospace Forces in Syria to his spooks in Idlib. Well, he doesn’t want to give up Idlib, just as we don’t want to give Ukraine to the US Zionists. about the nuclear power plant, of course it was built in vain, the decision to build it was apparently made in moments of an eclipse of Govorun’s mind, he apparently sometimes falls into a stupor when he thinks for a very long time (in his words), he doesn’t have to think for a long time, but rather let him turn to more smart people who sit in special institutions, let them think. I'm sure they would not advise building nuclear power plants and SP1,2. with these funds, it would be possible to build a bunch of all sorts of factories in the Russian Federation., Starting from car factories, refineries and woodworking, so as not to drive raw materials like the Papuans. The talker himself ate the hook, and now it remains to calculate the investments of the Turks in the Russian Federation, and carry out the exchange. we give them the unfinished nuclear power plant and take away their factories from the shops of the shopping center in the Russian Federation. in general, it turns out strange, the authorities of the Russian Federation do not want to build anything at all, they stupidly want to sit on the pipes, and wait for the Germans, etc., to come and build factories. imagine if Stalin had sat like that, that is, there would have been no industrialization of collectivization, they would have sat with a chopper in bast shoes (as under Nikolavshka) and waited for the "white gentlemen" to arrive and pull the country out of the Middle Ages. and they would have waited, only the gentlemen arrived in tanks in 1941, to conquer the "natives"

    Yes, of course, it is advisable to freeze the construction of a nuclear power plant in hostile Turkey, to invest in the construction of a logistics route to Iran.
    And, of course, to force reindustrialize their own country (although Turkey's unfriendly actions against the backdrop of sanctions make a very modest contribution to the overall motivation of Russians to do this).
    But here and now another question is relevant - what to do if the navy of the Turkish Sultan rushes to Odessa? Mining of the route is stopped by the mine action of the Turkish side. Only a strike by Russian aircraft, coastal missile systems, ships and submarines can really stop the Turkish fleet. First, of course, a warning.

    In my opinion, the authorities have adopted and for many years successfully apply the recipe from M.E.

It must be admitted that this works, we have been waiting for a quarter of a century, we hope, we are looking for explanations.

    Who, Lavrov or what? Before smelly Tajiks, he apologized for our OMON, that they were crushed for bullying Tajik migrants over Russians in Moscow and St. Petersburg!

    But they did not apologize for the execution of Russians near Belgorod recently and for the older events of 30 years ago. But that was Russian, Moscow neo-colonialism? ;) Yes, these are already in Moscow to breathe, it's not nice to be!

    Russia may or may not put Erdogan in his place. It's not just a play on words - it's reality. So far, nothing has worked, despite loud statements about an asymmetric response and long deliberations. South Stream is a joker in the hands of Erdogan.

    Only it is not entirely clear on the point "in the third". Why do we need to build more power generation facilities? The power surplus is now 15 billion kWh. Cost price - 10 kopecks/kWh. at the hydroelectric power station. The cost for the consumer can easily be reduced by 10 times. Even taking into account the profits of networkers. You can find a smarter investment.

    Erdogan is a great politician. For the sake of his Turkey, he goes to any lengths and rightly so. However, who allowed Turkey to do what they want? Russia itself, in the person of its leadership and that part of the people, which, in spite of everything, is sure to rush to rest in Turkey. Let's go further ... Who allowed the world to behave this way with Russia? After all, all and sundry insult, humiliate, threaten and TD Russia! Let's honestly admit that the entire foreign policy of Russia in recent decades has been a failure. There were no significant, significant and proper reactions to all the attacks of world political life. Accustomed, deliberately accustomed the world to obscene attitude towards Russia. And never-ending shame has dragged on since that time. War is not good. She is the worst and the worst. Whoever chooses between shame and shame war will end up with both shame and the worst war. Erdogan is never a friend

    Dear Sergey, unfortunately everything is stable and ahead of schedule on our planet of pink officials. Today the bridge was unwound again. The impudent, stupid and insolent officials, even after almost 2 years, flatly refuse to understand that there is a war going on, and not some kind of special operation.

    Everything is correct in the article. The only thing missing is eggs... sorry... from someone.

    Well, this story about how Turkey circled Russia around its finger is a long-standing old one. Here is how Vladimir Ilyich Lenin helped Kemal Ataturk. And weapons, and gold, and gave destroyers, and sent bread (this is when people were starving in Russia), and built gunpowder factories, and presented the Kars region ... And in gratitude? The execution of Turkish communists, negotiations with the British on the creation of a Georgian-Turkish front against the Bolsheviks, the concentration of the Turkish army on the Soviet-Turkish border during the Great Patriotic War. A? And now ... Maybe they are afraid that Turkey will block the straits for our ships and ships?
