    Turkey is ready to compensate Russia for the damage after the Su-24 was downed. This statement was made by Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim to the TV channel TRT, reports RIA Novosti.

    "The content of the letter is clear. We expressed our regret and, if necessary, will pay compensation. Both countries want normalization of relations. I think things are on the mend," he said.

    On Monday, June 27th, it was reported that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan apologized for the downed plane in a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    The crisis in relations between Moscow and Ankara started in the fall of 2015 due to the attack of the Turkish air force on the Russian Su-24 bomber engaged in anti-terrorist operations in Syria. The pilot Oleg Peshkov and co-pilot Konstantin Murakhtin ejected. Murakhtin managed to escape, but the pilot was shot from the ground by militants when he was in the air above the territory of residence of the Syrian Turkmen.

    Since then, Russia imposed sanctions on Turkey, particularly banning the import of certain foodstuffs and repealing chartered flights and the visa-free regime.
