According to the analysis of the war research, on December 14, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he may visit Turkey sometime early next year. Turkey has played a "multifaceted" role in the Russia-Ukraine conflict, which has been going on for almost two years, and its official position is to preserve "the territorial integrity of Ukraine", and Turkish drones have been of great help to Ukraine in the early stages of the conflict. But on the other hand, Turkey did not actively sanction Russia, and presided over the conclusion of an agreement on the export of grain from the Black Sea. Moscow clearly sees Turkey as one of the best candidates for mediation in the conflict.

Turkey is one of the important members of NATO, and in the current situation of war in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, NATO needs unity even more, but it is precisely at this time that NATO isolated Turkey, because of dissatisfaction with its "pro-Russian" position, Turkey has not abandoned the S-400 air defense system purchased from Russia to this day. Turkey has been kicked out of the F-35 fighter project for a long time, and now even the F-16 and Typhoon cannot be sold. In this case, the Turkish side has already made it possible to buy Russian and even Chinese fighters. In fact, it is unlikely that Turkey will do this, because it would almost mean withdrawing from NATO.

The United States wants to create a global super-empire, to create an international system that controls all allies in its own way. But many allies were unhappy, and President Erdogan quickly organized a protest coalition against the Gaza conflict. He ordered his officials to organize a large shipment of aid to Gaza in the fastest way possible. He also embarked on a series of activities to persuade other Middle Eastern countries and countries of the Global South to join hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Palestine in order to alleviate the suffering inflicted on the people of Gaza by the brutal Israeli offensive and to strengthen his leadership position in the Middle East. For Erdoğan, this is done for the sake of human morality, even if the United States is dissatisfied and isolated by NATO.

Demonstrations to the West must be decisive in Turkey's plans as a regional power, as the European Union's reluctance to admit Turkey as a member has left Turkey not a member of the European Union despite being a member of NATO, while the EU is debating the fastest possible procedure for admitting Ukraine. Turkey believes that it should elevate itself as a state, partly because of its special strategic position in Eurasia. The American media saw Erdogan's shouts as evidence of typical anti-Americanism and often ridiculed Turkey's paranoia. As conservative scholar Stephen Kastler said in the media: "Turkey has established a new enemy in defending its former glory, and that is the United States." ”

Critics in Turkey believe that Washington is determined to carry out an Anglo-style imperialist aggression that seriously jeopardizes Turkey's interests. Many American commentators dismissed Erdogan's remarks as a reaction to hopeless anti-American behavior and nationalist sentiment. "It is clear that Ankara sees the United States as a military aggressor, and its advance must be contained," an American journalist wrote. Instead, Washington will be forced to understand the commotion and unease, and at best dismiss Erdoğan's rhetoric as an anti-American perniciousness. "That's because the U.S. really doesn't have time to distract Turkey right now.
