Russia accuses Turkey of buying ISIS oil

Excitement between Russia and Turkey have become more intense after the superpower was accused of being ‘emotional’ following the downing of its jet.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan lashed out and said Russia’s response to the downing of its fighter plane near the Syrian border was “unfitting” after Russia suggested some projects could be cancelled.

In an escalating war of words, Mr Erdogan also accused Russia of slander after it said Turkey was the main buyer of oil and gas from Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists in Syria.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered his Government to draw up measures that would include freezing some joint investment projects and restricting food imports from Turkey.
