Turkey is now considering a range of offers of military and defense systems from Russia. Over the last year, the Defense Ministry has been evaluating a number of proposals made by Russia to supply the Turkish military with battle tanks, attack helicopters, combat vehicles and a satellite.
"Many things have changed over the last year, and the key change is that Russia and Turkey are no longer enemies and that Moscow is no longer an enemy of NATO," a Turkish official said.
Russia has offered Turkey a range of systems and technology that are being withheld by the US, said officials. Unlike the Washington, Moscow pledged to provide weapons technology to Turkey.
