US Sanctions Turkey for 'Significant' Transaction With Russia, State Department Says

Cooperation between Turkey and Russia in defense and intelligence has never been met with enthusiasm by the United States. Particularly, when Turkey moved to purchase the S-400 Russian-made air defense missile systems, Washington began its threats to impose sanctions on Ankara.

Turkey's Presidency of Defense Industries (SSB), along with four top officials working within it, including its chief, Ismail Demir, will be sanctioned by the US under its Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), the US State Department said on Monday.

The United States has announced that it will sanction Turkey's SSB and four top officials for "ties" with the Russian defense and intelligence sector.
