    Media: "The U.S. State Department does not exclude that the shooting of catapulted pilots of the Russian Su-24 by Syrian Turkmens was self-defense, said the official representative of the agency, Mark Toner, during a briefing.

     "If the Turkmen forces were attacked by Russian air strikes, they could defend themselves," - said Toner to the question of assessing the actions of the Syrian Turkmens, who shot the catapulted pilots of the Russian Su-24. 

    To a follow-up question of a journalist whether to consider self-defense the shooting the unarmed pilots, who ejected with a parachute, he replied that "there is no clear understanding of what actually happened""
