MOSCOW (ArmRadio)—Putin has received Erdogan’s apology message for the death of Russian Su-24 pilot and expressed readiness to resume relations with Russia said Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov.
According to Peskov, Erdogan “is sorry” and is willing to deal with the crisis in the relations between two countries, Sputnik News reports.
Erdogan said that Turkey “shares the pain of downed Su-24 pilot’s death with his family” and “sees it as Turkey’s pain,” according to Peskov.
On November 24, 2015, a Turkish F-16 fighter plane shot down a Russian Su-24M bomber jet operating as part of Russia’s anti-terrorist mission in northern Syria near the Turkish border.
Following the shootdown, Russian pilot Oleg Peshkov successfully ejected from his plane, but was shot and killed as his parachute descended to the ground by armed militia.

I thought this ape said Turkey would never apologize for the death of the Russian pilot?
I guess when you recall ambassadors left and right for being called on your BS, you are soon left with only your own words swallow. Baboon.
Game changer again. It had to apologize under US pressure and for the sake of doing business with Israeli gas lines.
The more things change the more they stay the same….always has been and always will be.
