Cavusoglu, who attended the Doha conference in Qatar, said: If Russian oligarchs or any Russian citizen wants to visit Turkey, of course they can.
Then book: As for whether they can do business in Turkey, of course, if it is legal and not contrary to international law, I think they are.
At the same time, the head of the Turkish Foreign Ministry added: If that’s against international law, that’s another story.
Reuters remembers that Two luxury yachts attributed to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich are docked in Turkish ports. It is included in the list of oligarchs subject to Western sanctions.
Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Turkey has been trying to act “on two fronts”. On the one hand, it does not impose any sanctions on Moscow, it allows Russian aircraft to use its airspace and organizes Russian-Ukrainian peace talks, and on the other hand, it supplies Ukraine with weapons (including Bayraktar drones), and closes the straits to it. Russian ships openly support the oppressed Tatars against the Crimea.
