By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend News Agency Azerbaijan: en.trend.az…
“Four Russian ships have been blocked in the Turkish port of Samsun, the Turkish Haber7 newspaper reported Dec.5.”
“No details are yet available on the issue,” according to the newspaper.
“Relations between Russia and Turkey have deteriorated after Turkish Air Force jets shot down the Russian SU-24 bomber when it entered Turkish airspace Nov. 24.
The anti-Turkish statements made by Russian authorities are similar to the spirit of former USSR, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said earlier.
Turkey hoped that Russia has got rid of the USSR’s propaganda rhetoric, but facts show that it is not exactly that way, he said.
No one believes in the anti-Turkish propaganda but Russian authorities, said the prime minister.”
