Exploring the Benefits of Turkey’s Citizenship by Investment Program for Russian Investors – Still Open
At Liberto Global, we pride ourselves on being a resource for our readers. Whether it’s sharing the latest industry news or offering tips and tricks on how to succeed in business, we believe that staying informed is essential for any entrepreneur. So when the conflict between our region and its neighboring country once again flared up earlier this month, we knew that we had to speak up.
Our goal is not to take sides or espouse any particular political ideology in this situation. Rather, as business leaders, it is our duty to highlight the potential impact that this conflict could have on the economy of our region. With two great powers currently facing off against one another and trade ties being severed left and right, many businesses are already reporting significant slowing down of economic activity in the area. And if this situation goes unresolved soon, there may be dire consequences for jobs, production levels, and consumer spending in our region.
That is why we urge each side to come together and work towards a peaceful resolution of this conflict as quickly as possible. We hope that by shedding light on the economic implications of war and conflict, we can play a small part in helping to end these hostilities before things get even worse. After all, at Liberto Global, what benefits our readers’ businesses ultimately benefits us too!
While many nations and multinational corporations have chosen to sever ties with Russia in the wake of recent political turmoil, the Turkish government has taken a more neutral and pragmatic stance. While many would be quick to point the finger at Turkey and accuse them of having double standards, it is important to recognize that Russia and Turkey are deeply intertwined – both politically and economically – and any rash actions or decisions could have long-lasting negative consequences for both countries.
Despite their geographic distance, Russia and Turkey are heavily connected in terms of trade and tourism, with millions of tourists from Russia flocking to Turkey’s world-renowned beaches each year. In addition, many vital natural resources pass through Turkey on their way to other destinations, making Turkey an essential trading partner for Russia. As such, policymakers in Ankara know that any move they make will have far-reaching effects on Russian businesses and citizens alike. For this reason, they are carefully weighing all options before taking action, even if it means being perceived as “giving in” to Russian demands. Ultimately, while this may seem like a controversial choice to some observers, it is clear that pragmatism is the driving force behind Ankara’s decision-making process – one that must be acknowledged and respected by all sides involved.
For many years, Turkey has been faced with a difficult dilemma: how to balance its relationships with Russia and its NATO allies. On one hand, Turkey has long relied on Russia for much of its energy needs, given the close proximity of their two countries. At the same time, Turkey is also a member of NATO, which means that it must adhere to the policies and sanctions imposed by other NATO members.
Given this challenging situation, Turkey has often found itself walking a tightrope between these two conflicting priorities. One recent example is the imposition of sanctions on Iran in response to that country’s nuclear program. Because Turkey receives around 80% of its power supply from Iranian gas, it was temporarily exempt from imposing sanctions on Iran; however, this exemption was only intended as a short-term measure while alternative energy sources were being sought out.
While navigating the complex waters between Russia and NATO may continue to pose difficulties for Turkey in the future, there can be no doubt that it is a country well accustomed to overcoming obstacles and balancing competing interests. After all, as the old adage goes, “the loser may have great plans but is taught by experience what will really happen.” And when it comes to dealing with tricky geo-political issues like these, there is perhaps none better than Turkey when it comes down to real-life experience or tested pragmatism.
In the midst of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, it can be easy to point the finger at other countries for their role in fueling the violence. After all, both the US and Europe have continued to purchase oil and gas from Russia throughout the conflict, seemingly despite their vocal opposition to Russia’s actions.
However, it would be a mistake to scapegoat Turkey for doing precisely the same thing. In fact, many argue that Turkey had no real choice but to continue its trade with Russia given its dependence on Russian oil and gas supplies. Furthermore, while western countries may have been able to withdraw their support from Russia economically and support Ukraine economically as a result, this is not an option available to smaller countries like Turkey. At the end of the day, then, it seems unfair to blame Turkey for simply trying to secure the energy supplies that are so vital for its economic well-being. After all, in the meantime, Russia has still relied on oil and gas exports from western countries throughout this period of upheaval, demonstrating that it would be difficult for any country to completely cut ties with Russia in such a tumultuous climate. So perhaps we should save our criticisms for those who have traditionally held more power within this complex situation – not those who are merely trying their best to navigate through these difficult waters.
When faced with unfair and unjust treatment, it can be difficult to know where to turn and what course of action to take. Such was the case for a Russian national living outside of Russia for over 20 years while setting up a successful business in another country. Despite having lived in that country for many years, he had only been able to obtain resident status, as citizenship was never an option for him due to his nationality.
Last week, he went to renew his residency permit as he had done every year without issue. However, this time he was informed that he would be unable to do so due solely to his being Russian. This blatant act of discrimination shocked and outraged him, and he began questioning how such blatant prejudice could be allowed to exist in the modern world.
Despite this injustice, however, the man remains determined not to give up. He knows that there are others out there who have also been treated unfairly due simply to their nationality or heritage, and he is committed to fighting against this type of prejudice wherever it may be found. Through collective action and unwavering perseverance, change can indeed be achieved.
