Russia has “objective” data on the Turkish jet downed by Syrian forces on June 22 that it is willing to share, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said, according to Doğan news agency.
 
"We have our own objective observations and date," Lavrov said. "We are ready to share."
 
An unarmed Turkish military plane conducting a test mission was shot down by Syria on June 22. Turkey claims the plane was shot down in international airspace with a laser- or heat-guided missile; Syria, however, says they shot the plane down with anti-aircraft guns as the plane flew within Syrian airspace at an altitude of 100 meters.

Of course they have data, they shot it down. People forgot that Turkey never left status of being a cold war frontier state.
