    Caution should be exercised in jumping to conclusions amid an ongoing investigation into the assassination of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Karlov was shot and killed at an art gallery exhibition opening in Ankara on Monday. The Russian Foreign Ministry said it considered the attack a terrorist act.

    "Moscow believes that one should wait for the results of the joint investigative team's activity. You know that it began its activities in Ankara yesterday. In this case, of course, it is hardly worth rushing to conclusions before the investigation establishes, as our president said, who was behind the murder of our ambassador," Peskov told reporters.

      What a crying shame. Not jumping to any conclusions is a wise attitude. I can say this for sure; this never would have happened if those wanting to overthrow the legally elected president of Syria for their own nefarious purposes never instigated the Syrian tragedy. So many people never would have died before their time, including the Ambassador.
