“And certainly, we believe that the masks are thrown off. And today might be even clearer with whom to deal in order to achieve our main goal of a political settlement of the situation in Syria”, – said Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Russian Federation.

“We see here a direct, vested interest”

Revenues from the supply of oil from terrorist-controlled regions of Syria in Turkey accumulate in the accounts of those who are responsible for the destruction of the Russian bomber su-24, said Dmitry Rogozin, noting that he is inclined to see in the strike against Russian aircraft intent.

Rogozin stressed that the Russian Federation “in accidents don’t believe”. “We see here a direct, vested interest of Turkey to preserve the status quo that has emerged (in the form of) control of the “Islamic state” (is prohibited in the Russian Federation terrorist group) over a large regions, regions of Syria, especially oil,” he said.

“And we see, in fact, today, supplies of oil products from Syria to Turkey are already in industrial volume, it’s billions of dollars that accumulate in the accounts of specific individuals, who gave the order for the destruction of our aircraft,” stated Rogozin.

According to Russian Vice-Premier, “the last days revealed who is on whose side in this conflict – who only claims that he is involved in the fight against “Islamic state”, but in fact is a direct his patron and condone his terrorist activities”.

“You know about the reaction of our leadership and our people in a terrorist act against our Armed forces, who carried out an operation (in Syria). This dastardly stab in the back literally and figuratively against our aircraft that was in operation lawfully on the territory of Syria and attacked by a terrorist group”, – said the Deputy Chairman of the Russian government.

Now the question is revenge the criminals already are national in character and, of course, we will do everything in order to finish and achieve the goals that we set for ourselves when carrying out military operations against the most dangerous current threat to the whole world”, – said Deputy Chairman of the Russian government.

Rogozin reminded that Russia is actively supporting Syria and “more than takes an active part (in the fight against terrorism), when compared with other States, which only articulate their participation in anti-terrorist operation”. “We are in Syria legitimate and intensely fight the threat that we believe is common to us. Of course, we will provide all support to the Syrian army liberated the country from international terrorists who have already shown their fangs,” – concluded Rogozin.
