Putin Invites UK to Analyze Black Box of Downed Jet – Says it Will Expose Turkey for Attacking Them

The flight data recorder of the Su-24 bomber shot down by Turkey will prove the Russian jet was in Syrian airspace, not Turkish, when the attack took place, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday.

Putin was presented with the airplane’s black box, which was recovered by Syrian and Russian special-forces, by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu on Tuesday.

According to a report in the Moscow Times:

Russian President Vladimir Putin invited British experts to examine the black box from the Su-24 bomber downed by Turkey last month, the Kremlin’s official website reported Wednesday.

The Russian President made the offer during a phone conversation with British Prime Minister David Cameron when he called to offer Putin his condolences after the incident, which resulted in the death of the plane’s pilot.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu showed the black box to Putin at a meeting on Tuesday. The president requested that it remain closed until foreign experts arrive to participate in an investigation into the downing.

Putin has said that international experts must be present when the flight data recorder is analyzed.

“As I understand, the flight data recorder will give us the opportunity to understand the Su-24’s trajectory from the moment of its take-off to the moment of the crash,” Putin said. “This means we will be able to understand where it was [at the moment of the downing] and where the treacherous strike from the Turkish Air Force was dealt.”

The Russian Su-24 was shot down on November 24, by the Turkish Air Force, with Turkey insisting that its airspace had been violated prior to shooting down the jet. Russia argues that the bomber was in Syrian airspace when the attack occurred.

Putin went on to thank those that participated in the reconnaissance mission.

“We must certainly thank our military, the staff of the special forces, search and rescue crews, and Syrian troops for retrieving the recorder, which will certainly help us to understand what happened,” Putin said in a meeting with Shoigu.

While meeting with Shoigu, Putin discussed the Russian bombing campaign against terrorist groups in Syria, stating that the Russian use of high-precision weapons would be continually analyzed.

“We must, of course, analyze everything, everything that happens on the battlefield, how the weapons are working. The ‘Calibers,’ the A-101 rockets on the whole have proved themselves very well; they are new, modern and highly effective,” Putin said.

Then Putin made a seemingly odd remark, which left many wondering exactly what he was implying, when he stated that he hoped the fight against terrorists would not require the use of nuclear weapons.

We know that high-precision weapons can be equipped with both conventional warheads and with special warheads, that is, with nuclear warheads. Naturally, in the fight against the terrorists we hope that is something that will never be needed.

With the movement of the S-400 surface-to-air missile system into the Syrian theater, and the recent movement of a Kilo class submarine off the coast of Syria, which promptly launched a cruise missile strike into Syria, the Russians have made clear that they will not be allowing the Assad regime to be deposed by Western intervention.

Regardless of what the outcome from the investigation of the flight data recorder reveals, Putin said, “Russia’s attitude to what the Turkish authorities did is not going to change.” It seems the Turkish government has made a critical error in poking the Russian bear for their Western overlords, as many have speculated that attack was actually planned in advance.

  1. The proof is in the pudding…plain & simple…but all it takes are politicians to make everything so complex contrived & convoluted to the point of a mass engineered cognitive dissonance existing in the collective ….of a Stockholm Syndrome mind enslavement.

  2. I take Mr Putin’s warning about nuclear weapons usage against terrorists as a direct threat to 0bama, Nato, and especially Turkey as they are the backers, trainers, funders, of isis. However, I think the decision Putin made on Sept 11th has made talk irrelevant, ww3 has already started.

  3. Yes, one think it is odd to mention “nuclear weapons” unless he realizes they are like vermin infestation?

  4. Putin takes great care in the words that are used. He say what he means and means what he says. Never forget that the USA has fingerprints all over the downing of the military plane but also the outright murder of all civilians on the airliner. Russia will not forget, ever….

  5. For a raging fire u need the triangle .. fuel, oxygen, ignition. In the case of muslim refugees who are really just posing ss … to trojan horse violently attack the US. The fuel is the jihadi radical, the oxygen is the metro cosmopolitan cities with gay day parades, abortion n birth control, prostitutes lining the streets, women in makeup n short dresses, bars n strip clubs, abortion clinics, drug dealers, people with multi dyed hair tatted up, pants around knees thugs, filthy n vile dialect, BLM, etc. (all of which true muslims despise), and the ignition … moronic PC do gooder myopic progs who use OPM to buy future votes. So let the sycophant progs that vote D every election on the basis of party accept the crazies of Islam in the cities who are liberal anyway and watch the fire rage from normal n conservative suburbia. If obama stacks up enough metro prog bodies Trump could win by attrition deaths n the prog lib rest will fear the trip to the toll booth. LOL LET THE JIHADIS ENTER. Great for ratings.

  6. Good idea but don’t allow them to take it away because we all know they will hand it over for to their American overlords who will use it for their own corrupt ends.
