    This thread will look into cultural, economic and geopolitical approximation of Russia and Turkey.

    Cultural:

    Year to year more and more Russians are comeing to Turkey for holiday. They are millions. Via mouth-propaganda in Russia more and more come and there is a cultural exchange between Russians and Turks.
    Also many Russians come to work to Turkey in beaches as animators, artists and so on. Meditarenean-Flavour.
    Russian-Turkish marriages are sky-rocketing.

    Off course these are also "inofficial" numbers.
    Russian and Turkish mafia also are makeing Turkey the biggest market for slavic prostitutes.

    We call them Natasha's and they are everywhere in Turkey.

    Economic

    I will first bring something unrelated to Russia and Turkey, so to show where Russian-Turkish business relations stand.
    For example Iranian-Russian bilateral trade:

    For example China-Russia:

    Now to Turkey:

    At the End of 2007 trade between Russia and Turkey will be 25 Billion $ and will be 2,5 times higher than USA-Turkey trade.
    Together with Russian tourists in Turkey, Turkish construction firms in Russia and bilateral Investments total business is well above 30 Billion $.

    Political in next post.

    This is a very good analysis.
    Please take your time to read.

    The source is non-English, so it will be machine translation,
    But i will edit machine translation so it is better to read as much as possible.
