Russia says that second pilot of the Su-24 was rescued alive

The second pilot of the Russian fighter plane shot down Tuesday by Turkey, "was recovered by the Syrian army," according to the Russian Ambassador in France, Alexander Orlov.

He "was able to escape and according to the latest information, was recovered by the Syrian army and must retrieve the Russian air base," said the diplomat.

The other pilot of the Sukhoi Su-24 was killed. The Turkey says he wants to avoid the "escalation" of tension with Russia after this incident. Ankara argues that its war planes have launched ten messages of warning to Russian pilots who would have entered Turkish airspace near the border with Syria.

The President Recep Tayyip Erdogan claims that "has absolutely no intention of turning this case as an aggressive act against Russia, the Turkish pilots were limited to defending the security and the right of the people"

However tensions run high and Beijing, which supports Moscow's positions in the Syrian conflict, defends the thesis from the Kremlin that the Sukhoi 24 was not in the Turkish sky when he was shot down and guarantees have proof of that.
