an interview with Sputnik [a Russia propoganda site], former head of
the Turkish General Staff's Intelligence Department Hakki Pekin
condemned Turkey's decision to shoot down a Russian Su-24 bomber,
describing it as a 'big mistake.'
Pekin suggested that Russia's response to the downing of the Su-24 will be very tough.
'Apart from sanctions, Russia also deployed its Iskander missile systems in Kaliningrad in retaliation against NATO's increasing activities. You have to understand that Russia has a very strong potential in this field,' Pekin said.
Russia could use the information on ISIL selling oil via Turkish territory in order to have Turkey convicted by the International Court in The Hague.
