Minorities in Turkey There are so many allegations of atrocities, corruption, illegal kidnapping, and so many scams in Turkey. Constant abuses of the Constitution and human rights violations evidenced by Turkey are continuing. Turkey doesn't care for its people. After hundreds of Turkish soldiers were killed in fighting in northern Syria, Turkish authorities began throwing thousands of refugees across Europe. Under the EU-Turkey agreement, EUR 6 billion was "committed and contracted, with nearly EUR 4 billion disbursed." Part of the money, EUR 2.4 billion, was earmarked for humanitarian assistance and was contracted out. The EU is supporting Turkey in every respect, but Erdogan is trying to "blackmail" the EU and cause instability on the borders of Europe.

Classic extortion scheme. Erdogan demands money lest he opens the floodgates and sends the masses into the EU.

Sad to see that the corrupt EU politicians are falling for it. Erdogan must be smiling.
