In Turkey, they turned to the Russian pilots involved in extinguishing the fires with a demand to explain their maneuvers. The claims were made by representatives of the Antalya forestry department.

We are talking about the crews of the Be-200ES amphibious aircraft arriving from the Russian Federation. They were leased by the Turkish side for use in the fight against fires. The next flight took place on September 28. At some point after the water was withdrawn directly from the sea, the air transport flew too close to residential buildings, which caused concern from the local residents. When the pilots completed the work, they were asked to provide clarifications on the fact of the maneuvers.
The Be-200ES pair arrived in Turkey in June. The planes must remain on duty there and help extinguish fires for four months.
