Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticized what he called Russia's "unjust" military interventions in Syria and Ukraine during a visit by the latter's president to Ankara.

"Russia says it entered Syria upon a call from the Syrian administration. I wonder who asked them to enter Ukraine? How will this fall in line with international law?" he asked during a joint press conference before adding that it boils down to "might makes right."

Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko is on an official visit to Ankara whose economic, political and trade ties with Kiev are being enhanced at a time when both countries are opposed to Russian actions in their respective regions.

"A strong Ukraine," Erdogan claimed, according to Hurryiet news, "which has strengthened its political stability, is also a guarantee for regional peace and order. On this point, all countries support Ukraine and further increase their current contributions.

"Turkey is a friend and partner," Poroshenko added during the press conference while expressing his appreciation for Turkey's support in light of what he called the "brutal violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity," by Russia.

Obama staged a coup in Kiev and installed a pro-nazi regime chalenging thus Russia and forbidding Russians to use their own languauag.Let's remember that Crimea and East Ukraine are Russian territories just like Diarbekir,Van Erbil , Mahabd and Afrin are KURDISH TERRITORIES and should have a KURDISH STATE.

He was completely silent when Russia annexed Crimea, but a year later he's outraged, what a disgusting creature.

Yet he can't find any aid to give Ukraine, but plenty to give Al Nusra.

Now mafia syndicate of the Ukrainian mafia and the Turkish mafia which are headed by pereshenko and Erdogan respectively together want to get united to confront the Russian federation state economically and also militarily if comes to a future conflict in the black sea.Did the Cyprus government invited the Turkish army in 1974 and still staying there as a looters?Did the Kurdish people in the Northern Kurdistan invited the Turkish army and their thuggs to oppress them and destroy their livelihoods and kill them for decades?? What a nonsense and hollow this size 9! Mouth man talking about.
