Turkish crutches! The Russians give money and the British sell Eurofighters and buy Bayraktars

Turkey received 28 billion dollars from unclear sources in the first 8 months of the year – British defense minister made statements about fighters and drones

A coordinated network is apparently supporting the collapsing Turkish economy with “tentacles” that reach into Russia, but also into Britain.

UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace’s special remarks to gdh are summarized as follows as you will see in the video and relate to both the fighter jet sale and the Bayraktar purchase.

Let us remind you that Turkish officials and Erdogan himself have stated many times that if the case of the F-16s from the USA does not have a happy ending, they will turn to other solutions, including British fighters.

Defense cooperation between the UK and Turkey in the aviation sector is deepening. London, which has been in the process of deciding to buy Turkish drones for some time, can take the first concrete step in this direction. The British Minister of Defense Ben Wallace attended the SAHA EXPO held in Istanbul for this purpose.

Specifically, the British minister stated:

-We are openly evaluating the sale of Eurofigter Typhoon fighter jets to Turkey.

– I saw the capabilities of Bayraktar, the Turkish defense industry adds strength to its strength.

– It is important for me to come and see them in person.

It has been claimed that the British, who have announced that they have canceled the Mosquito ‘Fighting UAV’ project they have been designing with US support for the past few months, have turned to Baykar’s KIZILELMA. A specific indication of this has not been revealed so far, but visits by RAF Commander Mike Wigston to TAI and Defense Secretary Ben Wallace to Baykar have led to speculation about which platform could be sold to the UK.

Money with a tail

At the same time, Turkey received $28 billion from unclear sources in the first 8 months of the year, according to the FT. The country’s finance minister says some of it was legitimate cash from holidaying Russians.

More specifically, a record $28 billion of undisclosed origins flowed into Turkey from January to August this year, the Financial Times reported on Tuesday. Turkey’s finance minister, however, has played down these concerns.

Turkish Finance Minister Nuredin Nebati told the FT he believed “unrecorded tourism revenue” was a key part of these net inflows, which were categorized as “pure errors and omissions” by the Turkish central bank in the Balance Sheet accounts. Payments, the FT reported.

Some of the money came from Russian tourists who had to use cash as they had no access to international financial payment systems due to sanctions, he told the media.

Nebati told the FT that relations between Turkey and Russia are simply “good neighborly relations”.

Russians have been Turkey’s second largest group of foreign visitors so far, accounting for about 13 percent of total visitors, according to the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Germans were the largest group of foreign travelers to Turkey in the first eight months of the year.

Nebati also attributed some of the unclassified inflows to Turkish companies and individuals who repatriate money – sometimes in cash – back home, according to the FT.

He told the FT that all inflows were legal, adding that Turkey “acts very carefully within the international financial system. It is not a country that behaves in ways that will cause violations of the international financial system.”

Mysterious inflows into Turkey are nothing new, but they are coming under increasing scrutiny as Ankara and Moscow grow closer. Last week, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country would work with Russia to create a “gas hub,” which PENTA has fully analyzed.
