Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his family members are directly involved in illegal oil deliveries from oil fields belonging to Daesh (also known as the Islamic State, IS, ISIL) in Syria, according to Russia's Defense Ministry.

The ministry provided photographs of columns of oil fuel tankers on the Turkish-Syrian border. Fuel tankers with oil freely cross the border between Turkey and Iraq, according to Russia's General Staff.

These oil revenues are used not only to enrich the Turkish leadership but to arm terrorists as well, the General Staff said.

Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said that Russia will continue to provide facts that Turkey steals from its neighbors.
