Out of Gas: Turkey Is Losing Its Battle With Russia

“Turkey has told the Reuters news agency that Russia has stopped work on its nuclear power plants. In reality, the Turks are exaggerating. The Russians haven’t really stopped—they have really only slowed down.”

“The Russians have done this before—only with Iran. They slowed down on the original proposal, Iran took the Russians to the World Court, and sued them. They wanted their nuclear plants.”

“Russia has also cancelled the junkets and all expense included holiday vacation trips that Russians make every year to Turkey. The numbers tell the complete story. Last year 3.3 million Russians vacationed in Turkey. That was 10 percent of all the tourists that visited Turkey.”
