The Turkish government has vowed to respond to the sanctions of the Russian Federation, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Lutfi Elvan said on Friday, according to Anadolu Agency.


"Let's see what they will come up with, what kind of sanctions they will impose. Of course, if they begin to stick to this approach, we have retaliatory steps. We have a plan B, and a plan C. They are all ready," he said.

The relations between Turkey and Russia deteriorated after the November 24, when the Turkish military shot down a Russian plane which had violated Turkey's airspace.

According to the Turkish military, before the Russian Su-24 was shot down, it was warned ten times of airspace violation.
