    The events in Turkey point to the fact that there are deep contradictions within the society and the country’s military, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.

    ULAANBAATAR (Sputnik) – Medvedev added that Moscow has to take steps to protect the interests of Russian citizens.

    "At the same time what has happened shows that within the society and the army of the Turkish Republic there are very powerful, deep contradictions that have led to all these events.
