Russian Defense Ministry has presented photos of oil delivery convoys at Syria-Turkey border.

The general staff has irrefutable evidence on Turkey's involvement in illegal oil trade. Moscow calls on Turkey to open access to places where, according to the retrieved Russian intel, Daesh oil trade centers are located. 

"We have identified three main oil routes," Rudskoy said.

The western route leads to the Turkish ports in the Mediterranean, the northern — to Patma oil refinery, and the eastern — to Dzhazri transfer point. 

The ministry provided photographs of columns of oil fuel tankers on the Turkish-Syrian border. Fuel tankers with oil freely cross the border between Turkey and Iraq, according to Russia's General Staff.

The oil from Daesh-controlled areas in Syria is being shipped to third countries for processing after having been transported to Turkey, the General Staff noted.

Russian Defense Ministry's information on Daesh oil trucks in Syria will be made publicly available online.
