After the fall and disintegration of the USSR, world had infact become unipolar with United States influencing and at times dominating many nations of the world on their foreign, defence and economic policies. But this influence of the USA is waning of late and the all-powerful USA is facing not only challenges but is also losing few of its trusted friends. 


Russia has been the old-foe of the United States. But after the fall of USSR, isolated Russia was forced to go on back-foot and faced heavy financial crisis. But since year 2000, under the leadership of Vladimir Putin, Russia has been on steady path to get back its lost glory. Recently it has gained so much strength that NATO commanders feel threatened and out-powered by Russia’s defence might and diplomatic tactics in Europe.

Less than a year back in the month of November 2015 the world witnessed an event which was going to be a face changer for it. It was on 24th November 2015 that Turkey’s F-16 combat aircraft shot down a Russian SU-24 fighter jet near the Russia-Turkey border. This even resulted in the bilateral relations of Turkey and Russia going through a complete 180-degree change in a snap.
Historically Turkey and Russia have had many ups and downs in their bilateral relationship. When Turkey joined NATO in the year 1952 and got aligned with the West, its relations with the then Soviet Union had got strained. Almost 4 decades later, following the dissolution of Soviet Union in 1991 the relations between Turkey and Russia improved quickly eventually leading to greater mutual trade. Although Turkey was always known to be a NATO and US ally, in the year 2009 the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Russia, met Russian President Vladimir Putin and signed many trade deals defining a new phase of bilateral relations.
