Russia’s defense ministry Wednesday accused Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his family of involvement in illegal oil trade with ISIS, as a dispute rages over Ankara’s downing of one of Moscow’s warplanes.

 

“The main consumer of this oil stolen from its legitimate owners Syria and Iraq is Turkey. According to available information, the highest level of the political leadership of the country, President Erdogan and his family, are involved in this criminal business,” deputy defense minister Anatoly Antonov told journalists.
