Erdogan Islamizes the Turkish society
The attack and further actions of the Turkish government, and what is happening in Turkey now — is the result pursued by the Turkish government, both in their internal and external policies. I should remind that the Turkish government led by Erdogan and his entourage are from the medium of moderate Islamists. The internal policy pursued by Erdogan is based on the “creeping islamization” of the Turkish society, development of Turkey’s Islamic way that is contrary to the foundations on which the Turkish state was created. The Turkish leadership goals coincide with those of the IS
Now Turkey, attacking on the armed units of the PKK, which in some countries are recognized as terrorist organizations, weakens the front against the IS. We know that Turkey, under the guise of the fight against the IS, actually supports the IS, which is fighting against the Kurdish national movement, Assad, the Iraqi government and Iran. All of these goals coincide with the goals of the Turkish leadership. Turkey — the heir of the Ottoman Empire
Currently, Turkey can not be an ally of Russia due to the historical peculiarities. Yes, there are politicians, businessmen who want to develop relations with Russia, but historically, Turkey has identified himself as the heir to the Ottoman Empire, and all the territory that once belonged to the Ottoman Empire, to some extent is in the scope of Turkey’s interests.
The historical relations between Armenia and Turkey, of course, also affect the Russian-Turkish relations. Armenia is Russia’s partner, a member of various organizations, where Russia is present. Our president has recognized the Armenian Genocide, this has clearly disappointed Erdogan.
