The editors of uznayvse.ru remind: on November 24 last year, Turkish fighters shot down a Russian Su-24 bomber, which for a few seconds crossed Turkish airspace. One of the pilots of the downed plane was killed while descending on a parachute - he was shot by Syrian fighters-Turkomans. After that, relations between Russia and Turkey deteriorated, and the Kremlin repeatedly stated that they would not contact Ankara until the Turkish authorities apologized.
