Russian Ambassador To Turkey Shot Dead In Ankara Art Gallery

The Russian ambassador to Turkey has been shot dead by a police officer who shouted “Don’t forget Aleppo” as he pulled the trigger.

The chilling attack on Monday evening, which was captured on video, appeared to be a backlash against Russian military involvement in the Syrian civil war.

Andrei Karlov was attacked at the opening of an art exhibition in Ankara by a man believed to be an off-duty Turkish police officer. Karlov was several minutes into a speech when he was shot. Footage of the attack showed a man dressed in a suit and tie standing calmly behind the ambassador. He then pulled out a gun, shouted “Allahu Akbar” and fired at least eight shots.

After firing at the ambassador, the man shouted in Turkish: “Don’t forget Aleppo. Don’t forget Syria. Unless our towns are secure, you won’t enjoy security. Only death can take me from here. Everyone who is involved in this suffering will pay a price.”

He also shouted in Arabic: “We are the one who pledged allegiance to Muhammad, to wage jihad.



The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, called the killing a “provocation” aimed at sabotaging a rapprochement between Moscow and Ankara and attempts to resolve the conflict in Syria.

The crime that was committed is without doubt a provocation aimed at disrupting the normalisation of Russian-Turkish relations and disrupting the peace process in Syria that is being actively advanced by Russia, Turkey and Iran,” he said in televised comments.

Putin said: “There can be only one answer to this - stepping up the fight against terrorism, and the bandits will feel this.

Putin said that Russian officials would be dispatched to Ankara to investigate the killing. “We have to know who directed the hand of the killer,” he said.

The attacker was killed by Turkish special forces after they surrounded the gallery. Photographs from the aftermath appeared to show him lying dead on the floor. Three other people were wounded.

Local media outlets said security guards at the scene had told them that the killer showed a police ID to enter the gallery. The Turkish interior ministry named the attacker as Mevlut Mert Altıntas, an officer in Ankara’s riot police squad, who was born in 1994 in Aydin and graduated from Izmir police academy.

I forsee the World peace being threatened soonest.

With Putin and Trump sitting at the driving seats, full scale wars are inevitable grin

Turkey just murdered a sleep and very soon your guess will be as good as mine.

It's no longer a tale that the collabo between Putin and Trump paved way for Trump''s "Victory" over Hillary Clinton. Even the American CIA couldn't beat the Russians Cycber-tech.

Never toy with the Russian Warlord grin

Wrong move by the useless policeman. How could you killed a Russian? Why not enter plane to Saudi arabia/US and kill the real architect of the Syria conflict?

Nonsense.

The idiotic police guy just escalated the existing tension. What problem exactly was he trying to solve by killing the ambassador? Misplaced anger. If he wanted to help, he would have gone to join the rebel and and fight a legitimate government.

Mtscheeew.
