New Russian sanctions for Turkey after Erdogan “regrets” Su-24 downing

A decree signed by Vladimir Putin Saturday covered a new package of sanctions including imports of some goods from Turkey, the extension of contracts for 200,000 Turks with families working in Russia, a ban on Turkish companies in Russia and an end to charter flights between the countries. Russian tourism companies were told to stop selling vacation tours for Turkey

The decree was published on the Kremlin's website hours after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan voiced regret over the incident, saying his country was "truly saddened" by the event and wished it hadn't occurred. He renewed his call for a meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the Paris Climate talks next week.
