Komsomolskaya Pravda: Türkiye’s fate if Erdogan wins the elections… the Russia’s friendship and a color revolution from the West


Russian Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper posted article discussing the outcomes of the upcoming Turkish elections and its repercussions towards Ankara’s relationship with Moscow.

The Presidential and parliamentary elections will be held in Türkiye on May 14.

The researcher in Turkish affairs, Ivan Starodubtsev, spoke on the air of Radio Komsomolskaya Pravda about the surprises that the elections can bring in Türkiye and what Russia can expect from their results, and he said, in answer to the following question:

If Erdoğan becomes president again, what is the probability that he won’t supply our opponents with the weapons he’s proud of?

Of course, one shouldn’t talk about Erdogan’s idealism… Its multivectoral nature, or as we also call it, polychair has become a common saying.

Another question is that he doesn’t intend to abandon the Russian see.

He now has the closest ties with our country.

The West strongly incites opposition against him… Therefore, I don’t think he will now rush to quarrel with Russia for Western support as they are not waiting for it.

It doesn’t matter how the elections go, what matters is how the results are calculated.

The Americans say, according to their data, that Erdogan must lose… So, if he wins, will they arrange a “color revolution” against him?

The Americans will destabilize the situation and there have been precedents.

In 2013, Taksim Square in Istanbul, then in 2016 a direct coup attempt.

Nothing prevents them from trying to do the same if Erdogan wins.

But the power structures are almost entirely under Erdogan’s control.

In addition, anti-Americanism is now on the rise in the country.

Therefore, neither the United States nor the European Union can directly enter Türkiye and broadcast something from the Turkish squares.

Even direct association with these is dangerous for the opposition.

It’s not clear whether the opposition own the capacity to bring the Turkish protesters to the streets, as until now, they dodn’t have enough capacity, according to Starodubtsev.
