MOSCOW, July 1. /TASS/. The family of Russia’s air pilot Oleg Peshkov, who was killed after his bomber was shot down over Syria by a Turkish jet last autumn, has dismissed the idea it might agree to accept compensations from Turkey.
"Not of course. This is nonsense. Nobody is writing any messages to Turkey with demands for a compensation," the killed pilot’s brother, Pavel Peshkov, said in an interview on a Moscow radio station.
"We’ve never had an idea of asking for anything. Even if we are offered a compensation, none of us will take it. This is not just humiliating. It is terrible," he said shortly after the local authorities of the Turkish resort of Kemer declared the intention to present the Peshkov family with a house.
Earlier, Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalyn said that Ankara was prepared to consider the question of a compensation to the pilot’s relatives to ease the family’s pain and grief, provided there was a request from the air pilot’s relatives.
