Russia have made the allegation that Turkey and the Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan have been buying oil from ISIS, supporting illegal fuel smuggling and terrorism by financing the group.

On Thursday, December 3, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu dismissed these allegations as ”Soviet-style propaganda.” Davutoglu also informed that Turkey was actively trying to secure the Syrian border, where the oil filled tanks allegedly should have passed through Turkey.

“In the Cold War period there was a Soviet propaganda machine. Every day it created different lies. Firstly they would believe them and then expect the world to believe them. These were remembered as Pravda lies and nonsense,” Davutoglu said on a news conference. “This was an old tradition but it has suddenly reared its head again. Nobody attaches any value to the lies of this Soviet-style propaganda machine,” Davutoglu added, before leaving the conference to go on an official visit to Azerbaijan.

Mark Toner, U.S. State Department Spokesman said on Wednesday, December 2, that Washington also dismissed the allegations of Turkey being associated with the Islamic State militants. No legitimate evidence of the accusations has been presented, Toner added.

As of now Turkey is setting up “physical barriers” on the stretches unguarded at the Syrian border. “98 kilometers of the border is under Deash (Islamic State) control, physical barriers are being set up here,” Davutoglu said.

“Turkey is undertaking all kinds of work with coalition elements to remove Deash from the border in the period ahead,” the Turkish Prime Minister said.
