Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants to secure the support of Russian President Vladimir Putin ahead of elections to be held in Turkey on May 14.
In addition, Türkiye plans to further strengthen economic cooperation. This was told to a correspondent of URA.RU by a political scientist, head of the department of the Institute of CIS countries, Vladimir Evseev.
“Putin’s arrival in Turkey is actually support for Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The country will hold presidential elections on May 14. Therefore, Erdogan is interested in Putin’s arrival as Russia’s support for economic cooperation with Turkey. Taking into account the loss of more than 10% of GDP during the February-March earthquake, the country lost at least 105 billion dollars,” said Vladimir Evseev.
The expert also notes that Turkey had serious problems before, for example, extremely high inflation. The economic partnership with Russia is more important than ever for this country.
Earlier it became known that in Ukraine the maximum age of people wishing to enlist in the Armed Forces of Ukraine under a contract will increase. This was announced by the representative of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, Colonel Serhiy Litovchenko.
