DOWNED RUSSIAN PILOT: The Only Survivor Speaks Up

Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 9.21.12 AMSounds more like an attack, than a protection of borders.

The surviving pilot of a Russian plane shot down by Turkey on the Syrian border has said no warning was given.

Capt Konstantin Murakhtin told Russian television there was “no way” the jet could have violated Turkish airspace.

Russia said Capt Murakhtin was rescued in a 12-hour operation involving special forces.

It is not clear what happened to the body of his co-pilot, who was killed by gunfire as he parachuted from the burning plane.
