Recep Tayyip Erdoğan ♥ Vladimir Putin.
Turkey will defy pressure from the West and continue to strengthen political and economic ties with Moscow despite its full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the country’s president has insisted a week before he faces voters in a tense runoff election.
“Russia and Turkey need each other in every field possible,” Erdoğan told CNN in an interview aired Friday, emphasizing his own “special relationship” with Russian President Putin is deepening.
“The West is not leading a very balanced approach — you need a balanced approach toward a country such as Russia,” Erdoğan said. “We are not at a point where we would impose sanctions on Russia like the West has done.”
Despite the country’s membership of NATO, Ankara has stepped up its economic ties with Moscow since the start of the war, increasing imports of cheap Russian oil embargoed by other European countries.
One might think it strange that Turkey should be getting into bed with Russia given the recent actions of its leader Putin, but Bible Prophecy has long shown that Turkey will have a close relationship with Russia in the lead up to man’s final conflict and the return of Christ. So, keep watching this development with Turkey as they move closer in their ties to Russia.
Based on Bible Prophecy Turkey will be with Russia and Europe when they invade the Middle East as described in Ezekiel 38. We fully expect to see Russia become more closely linked to Europe militarily whereby Russia will become a “guard” unto the European Nations according to Ezekiel 38:7.
Also, Ezekiel 38:6 says that “Gomer (France), and all his bands; the house of Togarmah (Turkey) of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.”
So somehow Turkey will be involved with Russia and it’s Army and the move into the Middle East.
