Turkey's foreign minister says sanctioned Russian oligarchs are welcome as tourists and investors

Sanctioned Russian oligarchs are welcome in Turkey as tourists and investors, according to the country's foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu. The politician said in an interview with CNBC at the Doha Forum: "We implement UN-approved sanctions, so if any Russian citizens want to visit Turkey, of course, they can visit Turkey. Now Russians are coming to visit Turkey, that's no problem." "If you mean that these oligarchs can do any business in Turkey, then of course if it is legal and it is not against international law, I will consider," he added when pushed on whether sanctioned oligarchs can do business in the country. He said: "If it is against international law, then that's another story." Turkey said that allowing Russian oligarchs into the country is legitimate – so long as the yachts remain outside the territorial waters of sanctioning countries, which extend 12 nautical miles from the coastline.


Ankara has not joined with the West in sanctioning the Putin regime, an outlier position Turkey shares with Israel.

Turkey needs to be kicked outta NATO and put on the same sanctions list as Russia and the oligarchs Erdogan is offering sanctuary to.
 
Erdogan's policy thus far has basically been "I support both sides!".

Well, they did get kicked out of the F-35 program. That's a start.
