Russian President Vladimir Putin offered his condolences following the assassination of Russian ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov on Monday.
Putin said it was “certainly a provocation aimed at disrupting the normalisation of Russian-Turkish relations and at derailing the peace process in Syria, which is actively promoted by Russia, Turkey, Iran and other countries interested in the settlement of the Syrian conflict.”
