    Russia hopes for Turkey to assume a more constructive stance on the Syrian crisis at the upcoming meeting between President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Putin and Erdogan are scheduled to meet on Tuesday, August 9, in Russia's second-largest city of St. Petersburg. The meeting is set to be the first since the Su-24 downing incident by a Turkish jet in November 2015 over Syria.

    "Of course, the Syrian crisis will be discussed in great detail, and we hope that the Turkish position will have a more constructive character in the given context," Ushakov said.
