In reference to the articles written by Harun Yahya in the wake of the downing of the Russian warplane, Free Press, one of Russia’s most popular and foremost news sources, mentioned the significant role these articles had played in easing the tension between Turkey and Russia.
Free Press featured on its website the following words regarding Harun Yahya’s efforts on the matter:
Turkish intellectuals’ call for easing the tension was very on point. The Turkish writer Adnan Oktar (Harun Yahya) called on the Russian, Chinese and Iranian trading companies with these words: “It would not be a rational move to escalate the tension over an unintended incident between Turkey and Russia. The issue should be settled and assessed peacefully.”
