Russia offers Turkey Su-35 fighter jets amid F-35 program expulsion
Russia is ready to sell its super-maneuverable Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets to Turkey, head of the Russian state conglomerate Rostec said Thursday.
"If our Turkish colleagues express a desire, we are ready to work out the deliveries of the Su-35," Sergei Chemezov said, Daily Sabah reports.
The Russian offer comes a day after the United States announced it is removing Turkey from the F-35 stealth fighter program, following through on threats to do so over Ankara's purchase of the Russian S-400 air defense system.
The Foreign Ministry called on Washington to correct its decision, which it said would irreparably damage relations between the two countries.
