"This is the line of the US policy - to punish those who show the slightest signs of sovereignty, defend their own economic interests and try not to obey the dictates of Washington" - RIA Novosti quoted the diplomat.

Earlier in the United States said that Ankara’s acquisition of American F-35 aircraft was impossible. As noted in Washington, the C-400 is the “Russian intelligence platform” for data collection.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry called Washington's decision unfair.

Later, the head of Rostec, Sergey Chemezov, said that Russia is ready to supply Turkey with the latest Su-35 fighters if they receive a request from Ankara.
