Relatively sidelined, relative to a chaos in Afghanistan which now occupies all media 24/7. But life goes on and for richer customers Russia flies in Turkey an export version of SU-57E (in Russian), which will be shown at the IDEF' 21 exhibition which opens tomorrow in Istanbul. It is the 15th time that IDEF'21 is held, and it is not accidental that it will be presented in Turkey. Mr. Erdogan was already treated to SU-57 before and you remember his question to Putin, right?
Something tells me, the first export contract for SU-57 could be signed with Turkey.
In the end, Russians love Turkish resorts and, in a tragic event, the crew of Russian Be-200 plus Turkish engineers perished few days ago, when one of the Beriev planes, which helps to fight Turkey's immense fires, went down. Many of those fires are around Turkey's coastal resort towns, which Russian love to visit. Massive evacuations of population and vacationers took place recently there. So, in general, there is a lot what is going on there and Turks definitely appreciate Russia's help. But since we are all still in unfolding situation in Kabul, listen what Douglas Macgregor has to say to Tucker starting from 2:54.
