Shoot down a Russian plane, Putin says, “I’m done with you!”
Or so it might seem. There are reports coming out of Russia that due to the plane being shot down by Turkish Islamists, Russia could pull out tens of billions of dollars for large scale projects in the very near future. And some of those projects are ones that Turkey relies on heavily. This is what you get when you mess with Putin!
Russia is terminating military cooperation with Turkey completely. Joint commercial projects will be closed down as well. Final solutions will be developed as a result of expert consultations. Russia’s Gazprom will have to assess the feasibility of building the Turkish Stream pipeline – the company had signed the memorandum of building the pipeline with Turkish company Botas.Turkey’s 22-billion-dollar contract with Russia for the construction of Akkuyu nuclear power plant is in jeopardy.
Until recently, Turkey was Russia’s fifth largest trade partner. For example, at the end of 2014, Russian-Turkish contracts totaled 44 billion dollars.
Wow! Screw with Putin, he cuts you off. This is that ruthless parent who sees you partying too much at college and stops sending the checks! Awesome. I fully support Russia cutting these ties with Turkey. Turkey has to be held accountable for the actions of the radical Islamists that shot down that plane, killing one of the pilots.
