The first match between Lokomotiv and Fenerbahce took place in Istanbul on February 16. It ended with the 2-0 Fenerbahce victory over Lokomotiv.
inUnprecedented security measures were observed before, during and after the match in Istanbul in the light of the recently strained ties between the governments of the two countries.
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.
