Russian ambassador to Turkey Andrei Karlov shot dead in Ankara



A Turkish policeman has shot dead Russia’s ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, apparently in protest at Russia’s involvement in Aleppo.

The killer has been identified as Mevlut Mert Aydintas, 22, a member of the Ankara riot police. It was not clear if he had links to any group.

The incident happened a day after protests in Turkey over Russian support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Turkey’s President said the attack was aimed at hurting ties with Russia.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin by phone and, in a video message, said that they both agreed it was an act of “provocation”.

He said that those who wanted to harm relations between the two countries “would not achieve it”.

In televised remarks, Mr Putin said the act was “undoubtedly a provocation aimed at disrupting the normalisation” of bilateral ties and the “peace process in Syria”.

A group of Russian investigators will arrive in Turkey to look into the case, Mr Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.

The UN Security Council strongly condemned ambassador Andrei Karlov’s murder, while Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he was appalled by “this senseless act of terror”.

While there were protests in recent days about the situation in Aleppo, on a political level the Turkish and Russian governments have been co-operating in the ceasefire operation, the BBC’s Turkey correspondent, Mark Lowen, reports.

Before the attack happened, a meeting of the Russian, Turkish and Iranian foreign ministers had been planned in Moscow for Tuesday.

But now it seems the political fight over Syria’s future has spilled over into public hatred, our correspondent says.



and from within..

“The incident happened a day after protests in Turkey over Russian support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.”

  1. with twitter it is amazing how these people just tell what they are doing in the public forum. Nationalists think they are shrugging off globalists, but only are playing into their hands. I think nationalism will have the tendency to darken what is happening with globalists. One more layer to weed through. I say this noting Haas’ recent Twitter on how sovereignty will be the building block of internationalism as it has always been he says.

  2. what if the whole thing is a hoax? 🙂 just a long shot

  3. erty

    And do you suddenly sprout beard stubble when you die?

  6. Thanks Isabel,
    Those comparisons are odd. There is deception happening.

    1 – The one footage shows the house messed up, and the lights gone. The other footage shows the house intact and the lights up. Both footages are supposed to be after the event.

    2 – Then the switch of the truck. First it is blue, then it is red.

    What I would like to know is were not people killed and a truck ran through the area? I also thought the truck ran into a dead end and there were no other ways out. It is a on a road. That part of the story does not make sense to me.

  7. .. hmmm

    The father’s name is Israfil Altintas.
    Israfil = Ariel/Uriel.
    Altin = Gold
    Tas = Rock.
    Like father like son.
