Crimean authorities have frozen approximately 30 Turkish investment projects currently underway on the peninsula, the government deputy head of the Russian republic said Wednesday.


“After the insidious act by Turkey with the Russian bomber [downed by the Turkish Air Force over Syria], it is premature to speak about any likely development. We have made the decision to halt the realization of around 30 Turkish investment projects,” Ruslan Balbek said.


On Tuesday, a Russian Su-24 Flanker bomber was shot down over Syrian territory. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the plane was downed in Syria by an air-to-air missile launched by a Turkish F-16 jet, and fell 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) from the Turkish border. Putin described the Turkish attack as a "stab in the back" carried out by "accomplices of terrorists."
