    A rally against the downing of the Russian Su-24 aircraft by Turkey took place in Rome on Saturday, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported.

    ROME (Sputnik) – As many as 100 people took place at the demonstration, which took place not far from the Russian embassy. Some people were carrying Russian and Syrian flags. The slogan of the rally was "Together against terrorism and Turkish aggression."

    One of the main aims of the event was to show support to the Russian position and President Vladimir Putin.

    "We want to highlight that the Russian participation is essential for the settlement of the Syrian crisis," one of the participants said.

    On November 24, a Russian Su-24 jet crashed in Syria during an anti-terrorist operation. Moscow said the aircraft was downed by an air-to-air missile, fired from a Turkish F-16 fighter in response to an alleged violation of Turkish airspace, an accusation denied both by the Russian General Staff and the Syrian Air Defense Command.
