(FOX NEWS) Russian President Vladimir Putin again slammed Turkey's explanations for the shooting down of a Russian bomber plane near the border with Syria, saying Thursday that the warplane's flight details had been passed to the U.S. in advance and should have been known to the Turkish government.
"The American side, which leads the coalition that Turkey belongs to, knew about the location and time of our planes' flights, and we were hit exactly there and at that time," Putin said during a news conference with French President Francois Hollande, during which the two leaders vowed to increase cooperation in the fight against ISIS.
"Why did we pass this information to the Americans?" Putin went on to say. "Either they were not controlling what their allies were doing, or they are leaking this information all over the place."
