    Assassination of Russian Ambassador in Turkey (121)

    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.
