Russia has lately accused the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his family for directly involved in buying oil from the Islamic State.
The deputy defense minister, Anatoly Antonov, made the explosive claim while briefing the media in capital Moscow and the same has also been published online on the website of ministry of defense.
Antonov said they have evidence to what is being claimed. The main destination for stolen oil from legitimate owners is Turkey and also top political leadership is involved in the illegal dealing.
The minister added further oil is transported to the country in industrial quantities through the rolling pipelines.
This is the first time Moscow is accusing the Turkish president or his family from benefiting buying of oil from ISIS. Earlier the country was only accused.
However, Erdogan has denied all the allegations coming from way of Russia saying he would resign if the accusations are proven.
