Todays Turkey is many times different than it was in history. Recently Russia under-estimated Turkey until they realised they were messing with the wrong kid.
In the past, it was Turkey who fought Russia in their backyard while fighting many other enemies simultaneously even while being outnumbered. In history, Turkey/Ottomans relied on the qualitative ability of its army while Russia relied on their overwhelming manpower. This time Turkey has both Manpower and Quality to rely upon, something which terrifies all its enemies.

It is confirmed to be fake news.
Turkish HAWK shot down Russian MiG-29. Happened in a parallel universe but not on Earth 666.

I know Russian language and Pilot says Меня сбили ( I was hit )


at 0.07 sec Pilot said that his Fighter Jet was shot-down, not crashed due to technical failure

Pictures or it's fake. No Turkish drone footage means we can safely say there is no Russian fighter jet shoot down.

Also, HAWK does not have the range to engage MiG-29. MiG-29 carries Kh-31P Krypton anti radar missiles range 100+ km. HAWK range 40 km. Only Turkish F-16 and S-400 have the range to engage MiG-29.

In general.
It may have to do with 2023 when certain restrictions on Turkey will end, which was imposed after WW-1, French in past also hated Germany and fought wars with it, and in WW-1 Germany and Turkey were allies.

These restrictions do not exist and are a myth spread by the Islamists to discredit Ataturk

If true, you can expect a hard retaliation.
Turkey in more or less troubles with Syria, Irak, Israel, Greece, France. Now Russia. Whaou.... congrats !
Not really.

All the nations you mentioned have their own problems. Greece's economy is still in the shitter. France has a lot of domestic political issues, and a declining economy. Russia is overstretched and its economy is suffering as a result, and Israel doesn't really care, it just wants to extract as many benefits as it possibly can.

Turkey is more or less free to do what it wants.

These nations have already tried to punish Turkey, and they've all failed.

Also, this idea that Turkey is opening multiple unaffordable fronts is not true. Turkey has only opened one front, and that's in Syria, its merely using proxies, and drones in Libya, and only operates in a limited capacity against PKK terrorists in Iraq, with the help of the Kurdish regional authority.
