Russians protest jet downing

At the Turkish Embassy in Moscow, eggs and tomatoes now decorate the walls…several dozen protesters venting their anger at Turkey over its downing of a Russian jet on Tuesday.

(SOUNDBITE) (Russian) BORIS, MOSCOW RESIDENT, SAYING:

“This is the embassy of murderers, in my opinion, of people who instead of being honest and trusted partners, showed their beastly grin.”

Turkey says the plane was shot down because it violated the country’s air space.

The jet crashed inside Syria, although some parts of the plane landed in Turkey.

The incident has sparked a war of words, with Russian leader Vladimir Putin warning of serious consequences.

NATO meanwhile, is calling for calm.
