Russian-Turkish Dialog: Foreign Policy on a Domestic Passport

... economic cooperation and bringing it to the level of USD 100 billion, the Kremlin stays reluctant in lifting a number of major sanctions on Turkish goods, and Ankara, despite the development of bilateral dialog, imposed restrictions on the shipment of grain products from Russia right after the meeting of the heads of states at the High-Level Cooperation Council on March 10, 2017.

Russia's Forbearance in the Turkish Crisis Should Be Applauded — And Reciprocated
