Hostile tensions between Russia and Turkey have been raising since Russian military jet was shot down by Turkish bomber along Syrian border. Now it is Russian military sea-vessel fired warning shots in Aegean Sea at Turkish ship in the latest clash between the two countries.

According to Russian news agency, the destroyer Smetliviy fired at Turkish vessel after it ignored repeated warnings and got too close  to Russian warship. After shots were fired Turkish sea-vessel sharply changed its course to escape direct collision with Russian ship.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, who called the downing of Russian military as “stab in the back”, has since imposed economic sanctions on Turkey as a retaliatory measure.

Deputy Defense Minister of Russia, Anatoly Antonov, has summoned military attaché of the Turkish embassy in Moscow in connection with the incident in Aegean Sea.
