Russian Gov't to Propose Retaliatory Measures Against Turkey on Saturday

The Russian government will present a report on Saturday to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev containing response measures against Turkey after its fighter shot down a Russian jet, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said Friday.

On Thursday, Medvedev ordered the government to work out a series of economic and humanitarian response measures against Turkey’s "act of aggression" within two days.

"The report’s date, as the prime minister said at a government meeting yesterday, is two days, or Saturday… The report to the prime minister will be tomorrow," Dvorkovich told reporters.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced on Friday the suspension of a visa-free regime with Turkey effective January 1, 2016.

On Tuesday, a Russian Su-24 Fencer crashed in Syria. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the plane was downed by an air-to-air missile launched by a Turkish F-16 jet over Syrian territory, falling 2.5 miles from the Turkish border.

Putin described the Turkish attack as a "stab in the back" carried out by "accomplices of terrorists."

  1. Russia has the right to make a military response after the downing of a Russian jet earlier this week by NATO member Turkey, lower house speaker Sergei Naryshkin said on Friday...

    Speaking in an interview with Romanian television station Digi24, Naryshkin said: "This is intentional murder of our soldiers and this deed must be punished."

    "We know those who did this and they must be judged. At the same time, the response from the Russian side will surely follow, in line with international law. And aside from this, Russia has also the right to military response," added Naryskin, who was attending a meeting of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (PABSEC) in Bucharest.

    He said Moscow had allocated additional military resources on Thursday to boost the security of Russian fighter jets.
