MOSCOW, December 28. /TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry in a statement on the results of the outgoing year has referred to the attack by the Turkish Air Force against Russia’s Sukhoi-24 bomber over Syria as "treacherous" and called it a confirmation of Ankara’s policy of connivance with terrorists.
According to the report, Russian diplomacy’s focus was on efforts to mobilize the international community for giving a rebuff to international terrorism and extremism, which had acquired unprecedented scale in the context of activities by the Islamic State (terrorist organization outlawed in Russia) and other terrorist groups.
"Efforts to resist the financing of terrorism and the very phenomenon of foreign terrorist militants were an important component of the work along this track. Russia’s active involvement resulted in the UN Security Council’s adoption of a number of important documents, such as Resolution 2199 of February 12 and Resolution 2253 of December 17, aimed at upsetting the financing of the Islamic State and other terrorist organizations in Syria and Iraq," the ministry said.
"Particular attention was paid to plugging the channels of financing the Islamic State with proceeds from illegal marketing of oil stolen from Syrian and Iraqi oil fields and transported across the borders of these states with Turkey," the foreign ministry said. "A confirmation of Ankara’s policy of connivance with terrorists was seen in the treacherous attack by the Turkish Air Force against a Russian Sukihoi-24 fighter-bomber, involved in an anti-terrorist operation in Syrian airspace."
