Turkey has retaliated against Russian sanctions by warning the Russian media that as of February 15 their journalists will need visas to visit Turkey, reported RIA Novosti citing an employee of the Turkish Embassy in Russia.

The latter said these are retaliation measures against Russia's introduction of working visas for Turkish nationals.

Tensions between two countries emerged after repeated violations of the Turkish airspace by the Russian Air Forces.
