Comment: In Turkey the interests of the Kremlin contradict Russian

Moscow is glad to any internal conflicts in NATO. However friendship of Russia with Turkey from the economic point of view useful does not look, Ivan Preobrazhensky considers. Russia began with

deliveries of S-400 surface-to-air missile missile systems (STAMMS) to Turkey. The first components, within the contract signed in 2017, already arrived to Myurted air base. NATO and the USA expressed the sharp rejection of this transaction, Washington even threatened with sanctions, but the Kremlin triumphs so far. However, it is not clear, the profit of Russia on friendship with Turkey is how big, or again support of "the brotherly mode" is more important than economy?

the Current cooperation with Turkey begins to remind friendship of the USSR with ideologically close modes when Moscow invested billions in large infrastructure projects in others territory, without receiving immediate economic return.

to Outride NATO

Why the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan needs S-400 - clear. First, its army receives the most modern weapon which Russia exports, perhaps, even more powerful, than the American analogs, and approximately twice the cheapest way. Secondly, the Turkish governor shows to the USA and the European Union the independence and independence. it is important

For it after sharp cooling of the relation with Washington and Brussels after suppression of attempt of a military coup in Turkey. Taking into account that these systems can be useful unless in war with Russia by present allies of Ankara on NATO and neighbors in the restless region, it turns out that it is just a signal of Erdogan's isolation, not the strategic, but political solution, a symbol of its power.

Similar logic, apparently, and at the Kremlin. The strategic purposes at the present Russian authorities always on the first place. How many, for example, would not argue on humanitarian or historical value of the Crimea, for the Russian General Staff the peninsula always was and remains military base. Here and with Turkey, apparently, a similar story. To sell to NATO country one of the most modern types of arms in peak of the USA, to cause split in the North Atlantic Alliance is a dream of the Russian military strategists.

Actually earnings - on the second place. Though the amount of transaction impressive (2.5 billion dollars), a main goal - to break on the NATO market of weapon. Profit in general plays the lesser value in the Russian foreign policy, the external economic transactions, including such strategic industries as export of weapon, hydrocarbons or nuclear power.

the Expensive "Turkish stream" of

Just with Ankara now also seeks to cooperate in these three spheres Moscow. Besides the beginning of sale of arms for one of the most powerful armies of NATO, there is one more bilateral project - already begun construction of Akkuyu nuclear power plant. It is conducted at the expense of the Russian 30-year credit of 20 billion dollars issued on conditions, extremely favorable to Ankara, which should be given obviously already not to Erdogan and Vladimir Pu will hardly report on his return
