She said that Alparslan Celik and his associates should be held accountable for the murder of the Russian pilot Oleg Peshkov and brought to justice.
"We demand that the Turkish authorities take immediate steps to apprehend Alparslan Celik and his followers and bring them to justice for the murder of the Russian pilot, as well as for taking part in the hostilities on the side of illegal armed formations on the territory of a foreign state," she said.
According to Russia Today, Celik is a Turkish national, who appears to be a son of the mayor of Keban, a small town in the Turkish province of Elazig. Celik is also said to be a member of the Grey Wolves, a youth organization often described as ultranationalist or neo-fascist. Other reports have assumed that Celik is a commander of the Syrian Turkmen rebels, who are said to have opened fire into the air after Peshkov ejected himself from the downed aircraft.
Russian President Vladimir Putin called the attack a "stab in the back." Moscow authorities have demanded an investigation into the case, but the Turkish government has not yet taken any decisive steps.
