MOSCOW, November 24. /TASS/. Nikolay Levichev, a deputy speaker of the Russian State Duma lower house, has asked the head of the Federal Aviation Agency to consider banning flights to Turkey following Tuesday’s crash of a Russian Su-24 military jet.
"I am asking you to consider total and immediate termination of air communications between Russia and Turkey until exhausting measures are taken to get rid of any possible sources of terrorist threat at Turkish airports," Levichev said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said the jet had been downed by an air-to-air missile launched by a Turkish F-16 fighter.
He said the plane was staying one kilometer away from the Turkish border and posed no threat to Turkey.
