Relations between Moscow and Ankara have deteriorated since the Turkish Air Force shot down a Russian bomber Su-24M in Syria.
Russia introduced some sanctions as for Turkey in the economic and humanitarian sectors.
Visa-free regime between Turkey and Russia has obtained since 2011 (the agreement was signed in 2010). Initially, it was a 30 days staying in Turkey without visa for the Russians (having the external passport), than the term without a visa increased to 60 days (up to now for the Turks it’s the same order, 30 days).
