As reported by AFF on the shooting and killing of Russia’s ambassador to Turkey by an insane man shouting “Allahu Akbar.” This kind of spark got us to the World Wars.
Segue to read to see how much President Putin got fed up!
As reported by Reuters, President Vladimir Putin said on Monday that the cold blooded killing of Russia’s ambassador to Turkey was an obvious provocation aimed at disrupting Russia-Turkey good terms and disable Moscow’s attempts to detect a competent solution for the Syria crisis, with Iran and Turkey
He segued to praise the Russian ambassador, Andrei Karlov, who was shot in the back and killed as he gave a speech at an Ankara art gallery, and made sure Moscow’s response to his assassination would be no less than adequate to that terrible thing.
“A crime has been committed and it was without doubt a provocation aimed at spoiling the normalization of Russo-Turkish relations and spoiling the Syrian peace process which is being actively pushed by Russia, Turkey, Iran and others,” said an angry Putin.
“There can only be one response – stepping up the fight against terrorism. The bandits will feel this happening.”
“We must know who directed the killer’s hand,” Putin said to Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Sergei Naryshkin, the head of his SVR foreign intelligence service, and Alexander Bortnikov, the head of the domestic FSB security service.
As reported by the Conservative Tribune, Putin ordered security measures to be even tougher at Russian embassies and consulates around the world in case of any more attacks, and at the same time ordering extra security for Turkish diplomatic facilities in Russia.
According to the U.K. Express, the Russian Foreign Ministry is expected to bring the issue of the assassination on the table with the United Nations Security Council right away.
“There is no place for terrorism and we will be resolutely fighting against it,” said a spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry.
In 1914,the Archduke Franz Ferdinand, presumptive heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was assassinated in Sarajevo (today in Bosnia and Herzegovina), an act of terrorism that escalated to be the beginning of World War I.
It appears to be that radical Islamic terrorists are the only ones who should be alarmed by Putin’s response.
