Despite the Russian President’s contempt by the Turkish authorities, the ceremony of body’s transfer looks solemnly and respectfully.
It wasn’t quiet, Russia used to carry fallen soldiers in zinc coffin, but Turkey carried the body in the coffin covered by the national flag, accompanied by a honor guard.
The killed pilot’s body (Oleg Peshkov) was delivered to Moscow. Body’s transfer to Russia was held according to the military honors: the ceremony was organized at the highest level.
Turkey transferred the Russian pilot’s body by a ceremony at the highest level. In Ankara, military, dressed in parade uniform, took out the coffin with the Russian pilot’s body from the plane and walked by the Goose step until airfield building, in front of Embassy’s representatives.

They make clear that they respect more this common Russian guy, who met the death, by some quirk of fate, at an useless adventure, than the government which set off him to die.
