HE RILED UP THE BEAR w HIS PREPLANNED ATTACK ... President Vladimir #Putin
signed a decree imposing a raft of punitive #economic
sanctions against #Turkey
on Saturday, underlining the depth of the Kremlin’s anger towards #Ankara
four days after Turkey shot down a Russian warplane.
AND Putin aides say he is #incandescent
that Turkish President Tayyip #Erdogan
has yet to apologise for the Nov. 24 incident.
Senior Russian officials have called the episode a #preplanned #provocation
. It is one of the most serious publicly acknowledged clashes between a #NATO
member country and Russia for half a century.http://tinyurl.com/prh2ea6
