Russian President Vladimir Putin called Turkey’s downing of Su-24 jet a “stab in the back,” which caused the phrase to trend on Twitter in Russia.

Russian users have begun tagging their posts with #УдарВСпину (“stab in the back”) as they encourage people to boycott Turkey and accuse the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of working with the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) in Syria.

Translation: Boycott Turkey! No Tourism!

Translation: History repeats itself. After 100 years, Turkey once again betrays its allies.

Russians enjoy vacations in Turkey, but now some will rid themselves of any reminders of the NATO country.
