The fatal attack on Russia’s ambassador to Turkey, who was killed by a gunman on Monday, is “clearly a provocation” aimed at undermining both Russian-Turkish relations and the settling of the Syrian crisis, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
“This murder is clearly a provocation aimed at undermining the improvement and normalization of Russian-Turkish relations, as well as undermining the peace process in Syria promoted by Russia, Turkey, Iran and other countries interested in settling the conflict in Syria,” Putin said in a statement on Monday evening.
The “only response” to the attack that Moscow “should offer” is “stepping up the fight against terrorism,” the president added.
“The killers will feel it,” Putin said. rt.com
