Ankara, Turkey—Turkish soldiers carry the coffin of a Russian pilot, who was killed when Turkey shot down his jet, to a Russian aircraft at Esenboga Airport on November 30. Turkey says it shot down the Su-24 fighter jet after it violated Turkish airspace on November 24 and ignored numerous warnings to turn back. Russia, however, says the jet never crossed into Turkish territory and called the incident “a stab in the back.” Both Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin have refused to apologize.
