Putin Warns Of “Significant Consequences”

Turkey on Tuesday shot down a Russian fighter plane it said had crossed into its territory from Syria, killing at least one of the two pilots, and marking the first time in half a century that a NATO member has downed a Russian plane. Russian President Putin says that.

The incident highlighted the complexity of Syria’s civil war and immediately prompted fierce reactions from Moscow. Russian President Vladimir Putin is seething, calling Turkey’s action a “stab in the back by the terrorists’ accomplices” and warned of “significant consequences”.
