    According to the Russian ambassador to Turkey, Ankara deported Russian citizens suspected of being affiliated with the Daesh to third countries Moscow has strained diplomatic relations with.

    ANKARA (Sputnik) – Turkey has deported Russian citizens suspected of being affiliated with the Daesh terrorist group, which is prohibited in numerous countries including the United States and Russia, to Ukraine and Georgia, making it impossible for Russian authorities to detain them, Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov said.

    “It’s important to not just receive information that a Russian citizen who is suspected of being affiliated with the Daesh has been detained. It’s important to get information on his future fate. Russian citizens suspected of being affiliated with Daesh have very often been sent out of Turkey not to Russia, but to third countries, with which we don’t have diplomatic relations [Georgia], or the relations are tense [Ukraine]. If a suspect tied to Daesh is sent to these countries, then the possibilities of our actions in detaining them are equal to zero,” Karlov told RIA Novosti in an interview.
