    Warsaw residents held a protest in front of the Turkish Embassy on Saturday against Ankara’s alleged support of terrorism.

    WARSAW (Sputnik) — According to the protest's organizers, Turkey, as a member of NATO, which has been destabilizing the Middle East region in recent years, is responsible for the emergence of organized terrorist groups.

    "Turkey downed a Russian plane and thus confirmed that it supported the interests of the Islamic State terrorist organization,” leader of Polish political party Self-Defence of the Republic of Poland Mateusz Piskorski, who attended the demontration, told RIA Novosti.

    According to Piskorski, “Turkey has a lot of very different interests, which in recent years are based on oil trade with Islamic State."

    The protesters urged Turkey to stop supporting terrorist groups, as Ankara’s actions harm the whole of Europe.

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov observed on Wednesday that Turkey struck down a Russian fighter jet operating in Syria on Tuesday after Russian attack aircraft launched airstrikes against ISIL convoys with stolen oil there.

    Leader of the State of Law Coalition party in the Iraqi parliament Mowaffak Rubaie told Sputnik on Saturday, citing security agency estimates, that the ISIL terrorist group has gained some $800 million in revenues from selling smuggled Iraqi oil and gas on Turkey’s black market over the past eight months.
