Turkish Citizens Stopped from Travel to Russia

Turkey’s foreign ministry has advised people to postpone all non-urgent travel to Russia, the latest move in an escalating row between Moscow and Ankara over a Russian jet shot down by Turkey.

The ministry said in a statement that, following difficulties faced by Turkish visitors and residents in Russia, it advised Turks to postpone all non-urgent travel.

It said Turks should delay travel plans until “the situation becomes clear”.

Turkey’s downing of the Russian military jet on Tuesday, the first time in half a century that a Nato member has shot down a Russian plane, has drawn a harsh response from Moscow.

Russia has restricted tourist travel, left Turkish trucks stranded at the border, confiscated large quantities of Turkish food imports and started preparing a raft of broader economic sanctions.
