    Moscow is ready to normalize ties with Ankara after they deteriorated following Turkey’s downing of a Russian fighter jet late last year, but Russia has not received any positive signals from Turkey yet, according to Russian Federation Council Chairwoman Valentina Matviyenko.

    Matviyenko said that despite the fact Russia was willing to try to repair tense relations, Turkey – which she said bore responsibility to take a step as it downed the Russian jet – had not yet given any signals.

    “Our relations with Turkey need to be taken out of the deepfreeze. We are actually ready to solve this but we are not the reason for this coldness between us,” said Matviyenko on March 24.

    “For the ice to melt, Turkey needs to take a step and take responsibility for downing our plane. Unfortunately, we have not perceived even an indication from Ankara that such a step will be taken,” she added.

    Relations were bound to be soured, it was just a matter of time. The Russians started it and now want it to end. They are too isolated. Turkey was a good partner and a bridge for Russia.

    Russian air defense systems gave the Kurds, weapons, sent military advisers - trainers - so Russia restores relations with Turkey?
