"The Soviet propaganda machine was operating during the "cold war". It was creating falsehood daily. First of all, they believed in it themselves, and expected that the world would believe it either," Davutoglu said.
"This old tradition has suddenly reared its head again. Nobody gives any rush to Soviet propaganda mill style lies," the head of the Turkish government stressed.
The day before, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan refuted the Russian Federation Defense Ministry's accusations of involvement in purchase of oil from the "Islamic State". According to him, no one dared to slander Turkey. He confirmed that he would resign if such transactions were proven. The U.S. authorities claim that the government of Bashar al-Assad, in particular, is purchasing oil from the ISIS.
