The Russian Defense Ministry have released a video that they say proves the Su-24 Russian jet did not enter Turkish airspace.
While Turkey maintains that they shot down the plane due to it entering their airspace for 17 seconds, the Kremlin say that flight data contradicts their claims.
But flight data released by Russian Ministry of Defense shows that the Su-24s never entered Turkey, and were attacked while performing legitimate maneuvers over Syria.
On Tuesday, Turkish F-16s shot down a Russian Su-24M Fencer bomber. One of the pilots has been confirmed dead by Russian authorities, shot by rebel ground units after ejecting.
Russian President Vladimir Putin described the incident as a “stab in the back, carried out against us by accomplices of terrorists.”
