MOSCOW, June 17 (Itar-Tass) - Russia considers the current events in Turkey as an internal affair of that country, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Monday.
"Regrettably, riots in that country turned out to be quite intensive. There are casualties,” the diplomat emphasized.
"Turkey remains our close partners and neighbor in the region. We continue urging our citizens visiting resorts in Turkey to be cautious and vigilant and avoid places of mass concentration of protesters,” Lukashevich stressed.
"These recommendations are still relevant today,” the Russian diplomat said.
