This post first appeared on Russia Insider


Check out the latest from Turkey's aspiring sultan: When asked what would happen if Russia shot down a Turkish jet that strayed into Syrian airspace, Turkey's airplane-shooter-in-chief said that it would qualify as Russian "aggression." According to Erdogan

This kind of an incident which may happen of course will further push us to take measures. … Of course it will be an aggression against our rights of sovereignty and it is a natural right of [Turkey] to protect those rights

Russia's ready.

Yes, Turkish warplanes zooming around Syria is a matter of "Turkish sovereignty." You heard it here first. 

Why does Russia hate international law?
