"If we had known if it was a Russian plane maybe we would have warned it differently," Erdogan said adding that Russian President Vladimir Putin had not answered his call after Tuesday's incident that has seriously damaged ties.

Turkey's military said the Su-24 bomber was shot down by two of its F-16s after it violated Turkish airspace 10 times within a five-minute period on Tuesday.

Russia however said no warning had been given and that the aircraft did not violate Turkish airspace.

Tuesday's incident prompted a tough response from Moscow, a major trade partner and Turkey's largest energy supplier.

Putin has branded the act as a 'stab in the back' by 'accomplices of terrorists'.

Several hundred young activists on Wednesday hurled stones and eggs at the mission and broke several windows.

The foreign ministry said it wanted to express discontent over the "unacceptable" protest as well as a series of incidents against Turkish companies in Russia.
