Time Magazine] -- Analysts say claims by Russian president Vladimir Putin don't hold water. Relations between Russia and Turkey hit a new low after Moscow doubled down on its claims that Turkey shot a Russian warplane in order to protect its supply of oil with the militant group Isis.
Speaking just two days after the Turkish f-16 fighter shot down the Russian su-24 plane, Russian president Vladimir Putin said there was "no doubt" that oil from "terrorist-controlled" territory in Syria was making its way across the border into Turkey.
"We see from the sky where these vehicles 'carrying oil' are going. They are going to Turkey day and night", Putin told Afp.
