"A few years ago, Russian politicians were warning their Ukrainian counterparts that Turkey 'could allegedly pose' a threat to the territorial integrity of Ukraine. So far, Moscow has done everything to get Kyiv and Ankara united against their common aggressor (Russia)," Chubarov wrote on Facebook March 9, according to Ukraine Today.
