MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Russian Su-24 bomber was shot on November 24, 2015 by a Turkish F-16 fighter near the Turkish border over Syria. Following the incident, Moscow imposed a number of restrictive measures on Turkey and has repeatedly said that Ankara should apologize for downing the plane and cover any material losses to the country and the pilot's family.
"There will be contact on this subject, I do not know what results they will bring," Ushakov told reporters following Ankara's apologies for shooting down Russia's Su-24 in November that led to a rapprochement this week.
On Wednesday, the two leaders held a phone conversation for the first time in more than seven months. Following the talks with Erdogan, Putin ordered the government to prepare to lift administrative restrictions against Turkey in tourism field.
