Russian and Turkish presidents will discuss the compensation of the Su-24 jet downing at the upcoming meeting.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Turkey has yet to compensate Russia for the downed Su-24 jet and this issue is expected to be discussed at the upcoming meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov said Friday.

"They have not repaid it — this issue will also be discussed [at the meeting between Putin and Erdogan]," Ushakov said.

The two presidents are expected to have talks on Tuesday in Russia's St. Petersburg. It will be their first meeting since Moscow-Ankara relations deteriorated in November 2015 in the wake of Turkey's downing of a Russian attack aircraft over Syria.
