Turkey will not refuse cooperation with Russia, as between countries close trade relations have been established, as well as due to gas supplies and the construction of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant. This opinion was expressed by the reviewer Robert Ellis. His article is published National Interest.
Anakara will not sacrifice his close relationship with Moscow in order to follow the NATO line and condemn Russia’s special operation in Ukraine, the publicist believes.
He drew attention to the fact that Turkey depends on Russia for trade, gas, and also for the construction of a nuclear power plant.
The observer added that Turkey is counting on a record influx of tourists from Russia, and Turkish Airlines has already allocated one and a half million seats for Russians.
“So it’s unlikely that Turkey will rock that boat,” Ellis concluded.
