Relations between Russia and Turkey soured after an F-16 fighter jet from the Turkish Air Force shot down on November 24 a Russian Su-24M bomber, which was on anti-terrorism mission over Syria. Ankara claims the Su-24M bomber violated the Turkish air space in the area of the border with Syria, while Moscow maintains that the Su-24M plane stayed exclusively over the Syrian territory.
On November 28, the Russian president signed a decree to ensure Russia’s national security and protect Russian citizens from criminal and other illegal actions and on the use of special economic measures regarding Turkey.
