About Russian-Turkish relations, the secret underpinnings of the attempted coup, about the parallel Government and about the U.S. role in the story of the downed Russian plane, we on the channel of Constantinople in the last days I was talking incessantly and thoroughly.

How could Turkey’s rapprochement with Russia materialize? | Katehon

It becomes increasingly clear that the US has dramatically blundered in relation to Turkey, and to avoid repeating the events of July 15, 2016, Erdogan was forced toward a rapprochement with Russia.

During the military coup in Turkey, a Turkish satellite center was hit by attack pro-coup helicopters, simultaneously a major world power jammed Turkish satellites.

Dugin’s Guideline – The Moscow-Ankara axis: Turkey is turning away from the USA

In Turkey today, no one doubts that the attempted coup were the US and NATO structures, on the role of an American Campbell in the coup written all Turkish Newspapers. That in a revolution the Americans have allocated $ 2 billion and that it was attended by over 80 employees of the CIA, in Turkey, everyone knows. And after this stab in the back – as the Turks see it – of course, the attitude to the West changed radically. Those who were supporters of integration with Europe, with NATO and with the United States, have now become opponents of this course.

And what remains of Turkey? How can she solve the complex geopolitical problem?

Document Reveals What Really Drove Turkey’s Failed Coup Plotters

The coup plotters told the world they wanted to restore democracy, liberty, and stability. But a document found at a prosecutor’s office shows that a key motivation of those who staged Turkey’s failed July 15 rebellion was their opposition to the government’s now-collapsed attempt to make peace with the Kurdish separatist rebels fighting Ankara.

A three-and-a-half-page draft indictment obtained by BuzzFeed News and confirmed as authentic by a Turkish official suggests the coup plotters aimed to drag President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his top officials into court on charges of colluding with terrorists for their part in a six-year attempt to negotiate a settlement with the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, a militant group considered a terrorist organization by the US and the West.
