NAANTAPI, Finland, July 1. /TASS/. Russia has not discussed with Turkey the problem of compensation for the downed Su-24 bomber so far, President Vladimir Putin's aide Yuri Ushakov said on Friday answering a question from TASS.
"No, we haven't had any contacts [with the Turkish side] on the issue yet," he said.
He voiced the hope the Russian and Turkish governments would resume dialogue soon.
"I hope the government will open negotiations soon, on trade and economy in the first place," Putin said.
Turkish Air Force brought down a Russian Su-24 bomber that was taking part in an anti-terrorist operation in Syria last November. Moscow demanded apologies from Ankara, punishment for the guilty ones and compensations for the damage.
The Kremlin said earlier this week Putin had received a letter from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan with apologies for bringing the jet down.
