Statements on Turkey’s support for breaking sanctions against Russia were described as fake
ANKARA, 14 April – RIA Novosti. A diplomatic source in Ankara told RIA Novosti that the Western media coverage of Turkey’s alleged support for breaking sanctions against Russia is disinformation aimed at defaming the country’s mediation efforts to resolve the situation in Ukraine.
Examining the contents of the Pentagon’s secret intelligence leak, Politico alleged that Turkey helped Russia and Belarus circumvent Western sanctions by selling goods to Turkish companies to market them further in Europe.

“It is shameless misinformation aimed at defaming the mediation efforts undertaken by Turkey, the only country that has come to my attention today, to resolve the conflict,” the agency’s interlocutor said.
Earlier, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said at a press conference with his American counterpart, Anthony Blinken, that Ankara did not participate in unilateral sanctions against Russia and Ankara did not allow them to be circumvented.
The Pentagon is investigating a leak on the social network of materials describing the plight of Ukrainian soldiers and the US and NATO’s plans to strengthen them. The New York Times claimed that the documents from the beginning of March were distributed on “Russian pro-government telegram channels”. While it is claimed that more than 100 documents could enter the internet, the damage caused by the experiences is estimated to be significant. The Pentagon told RIA Novosti that they are reviewing information about the leak. Answering a question about the leak, Russian Presidential Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said that the Russian Federation has no doubt that the US and NATO are directly or indirectly involved in the conflict.
Earlier, US Attorney General and Attorney General Merrick Garland said that Air Force National Guard Jack Teixeira was detained in connection with the Pentagon leaks on Thursday. According to the Washington Post, Teixeira found the conflict in Ukraine “depressing” and felt that Moscow and Kiev “must have more in common than what sets them apart.”
The European Commissioner said that the EU is preparing to impose a new package of sanctions against Russia.
