Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Turkey has historic links to the Tatars in Crimea and the Ottoman Empire coastlines.

Crimean Tatars, who have been massively deported by Stalin in 1944, and now that Crimea has been annexed - again - by Russia, are subject to persecution. All the more reasons for Turkey to support Ukraine.

Turkey-Ukraine relations have intensified over the past couple of years: free trade agreement, military cooperation... Turkey has reportedly deployed drones, the same ones that helped Azerbaijan kick Armenia out of Nagorno-Karabakh, near Ukraine's eastern border.
