RUSSIAN FM: DOWNING OF WARPLANE A 'PLANNED PROVOCATION'



 

"We have serious doubts that it was unintentional, it looks like a planned provocation," Lavrov said, according to Russian news agency TASS. "We are not planning to wage a war against Turkey, our attitude towards the Turkish people has not changed. We have questions only to the Turkish leadership."

One of the two pilots of the Russian plane was rescued early Wednesday, a day after the aircraft was shot down in the Bayirbucak region of northwestern Syria near the Turkish border. Both pilots had parachuted out of the plane but one of them was killed by gunfire from the ground.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told Russian media that the other pilot was rescued by Russian and Syrian government forces and is "safe and sound" at a Russian air base in Syria. A marine involved in the rescue operation was killed.
