Putin Says Assassination Of Russian Ambassador Is Provocation Aimed At Disrupting Syria Peace Process

Tyler Durden's picture

In a televized statement on state TV, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the "blackguard" assassination on Russia's ambassador to Turkey, who was killed by a gunman on Monday in what Russia dubbed a terrorist act, "is obviously a provocation aimed at disrupting the normalization of Russian-Turkish relations and the failure of the peace process in Syria." He added that "the answer to this can only be strengthening the fight against terror; bandits will feel it."

"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.

Putin said he had discussed issue with Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan by phone, and added that Russia will send a group of investigators to Turkey, which was agreed to on the phone call. The Russian president also ordered security at Russian embassies around the world to be stepped up, and stated that he wants to know who gave the orders for the attack.

Putin said he would hold a special Kremlin meeting to discuss the murder. The "only response" to the attack that Moscow "should offer" is "stepping up the fight against terrorism," the president added.

Meanwhile, PM Medvedev said that according to international law, the assassination of an ambassador is the gravest crime and Russia will not leave it unpunished.

Without a doubt it is.  You either play by their rules, or get whacked.

Been that way for some time now with 5% of the world controlling 95% of its wealth.



Wait until 'ole Pootie finds out it was Cankles arranged the hit 'cause she was mad about the hacked e-mails.

I like the way you sheeps shit on muslims. 

Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, ISIS, and the Taliban were responsible  for 74 per cent  of all deaths from terrorism in 2015.

All of them Western creations, through the USA.

And on top, our fellas of The City of London, George Soros and the POTUS, Benjamin Netanyahu, pulling the strings.

RT says Killer was fired because was involved in the Turkey coup... go figure

There's a Russian orthodox "prophecy" (or threat) that says Russia will re-take Constintanopole - and crush everything in its path onto Egypt...and apparently tour guides employed by the government, point out that the round domes in the red square are topped with a Cross on top of a crescent - as a symbol of this "prophecy"

Won't happen anytime soon, but these incidents are starting to add up..

I think it does. Trump is clearly more sympathetic and cohesive to the Russian gov compared to the remaining Obama admin and the PNAC fucks who wanna get shit started before the Trump admin.

This is getting ugly!

When an Ambassador gets murdered it shows that the Country or Organisation responsible is getting desperate. Many people are pointing their collective fingers at a possible CIA ordered assasination but it may be a Lone Wolf or AlQaeda attack?

What comes as no surprise is that since the CIA has such a long history of ordering the steps of these murderous terrorist groups it should come as no surprise if people start thinking that this may be a US Govt hit?

Maybe this was the best last effort revenge Obama could muster with his effeminate bitch slap?

HowdyDoody's picture

The killer was armed with a standard pistol from which several rounds were fired in the murder. He was mown down in a hail of gunfire. Somebody wanted to make sure Lee Harvey Oswald didn't talk. Ooops, sorry, wrong murder.


War Machine's picture

well, thats slightly different from how Obama and Hillary regarded the lives of US ambassadors...

of course, they didnt want him talking about running the guns to Al Qaeda, either.

say - did they ever finish that youtube movie?

prety sure that one of Clinton's many lies was lying about that as proven by an email to Chelsea.


and can we stop calling a frontal, coordinated assault on an illegal CIA facility running guns to jihadis as part of neocon tegime change ops 'terrorism'?

no, that was a firefight, and Hillary left those guys to eat it lonely.

now, they may have been cunts, but they were Americans.

for that alone Hillary should swing next to The One.

Is this what Obama meant when he said he will retaliate against Russia.

Herdee's picture

Saudi Arabia and their national religious cult of Wahhabism is behind it. They start with young children in the brainwashing proces. We all know that Reagan,Bushs', Clinto and Obama/Hillary have used this religious hate for American Foreign Policy purposes including The Wolfowitz Plan. Obama/Hillary and Saudi/Qatar are the ones that have destroyed Syria. These are the war criminals that back ISIS.

War Machine's picture

+1, but the US is in Syria not so much for the Saudis as the Israelis...

although, the US, Saudi, and Israeli spooks have teamed up for decades, including in setting up the Taliban and Al Qaeda and now ISIS

and 9/11 involved both Israeli and Saudi elements. I know a lot of you vuys are prepared to pin it on Saudi Barbaria, but you hqve ro be either an idiot ir a shill to not be able to see Zio involvement.

The Saudi royals would be very easy to depose. Netanyahu's death would be good for the entire world - to include Israel.

Israel gets the NSA's raw data.

let that sink in. why would we ever allow that?


now let this sink in:


and This, from a ZH contributor:


the two countries most in need if regime change are the ones the US is working with to attack countries who never threatened us.

Krungle's picture

The Israeli and Saudis are very much in Syria. As the Syrians and other people on the ground have reported, the rebels are "foreign fighters"--e.g. Saudis scum. Amongst the Saudi Daesh scum, there is usually an obviously Jewish guy--they are not exactly hiding. Then there is the whole Netanyahu meeting with terrorist scum in Israeli hospitals to thank them for their service. Of course these pictures are not in the MSM, but they're easily found online. Then, of course, there have been the reports of the captured Saudis and Israelis in Aleppo (they have yet to be perp walked, so no confirmation yet, but names have been released).

Putin is a chess master. no way he's being sucked into war by these fools.

but stay your course. the new power realignment will prevail for humanity.

Lone wolf or Grey Wolf, fair chance this guy either believed bullshit about Aleppo or was dismayed at how blown up his cunt pals were.

I see no need to summon CIA on this one yet, although they're in the discussion.

naturally Vichy DC is terrified of Turkey finally understanding they are better off not becoming a Ringwraith for the AngloZionist Sauron....


this guy, apparently a cop on some sort of special unit, is unlikely to be a cia asset, but sure, you never know.

Turkey is batshit crazy, soup to nuts.

which is why CIA fucked up that coup so badly...

Putin is being quite measured here, especially when he knows good & Gawd-damned well who set this table.   There is much more at stake however, not the least of which is how world leaders' actions (or reactions) are perceived though the eyes of other nations.  

HowdyDoody's picture

One other issue. The CIA want to use this sort of action to initiate splits within Russia, hopefully, from their point of view, leading to the downfall of Putin. In particular, the knuckle dragging hard core nationalists will be frothing at the mouth if Putin doesn't explicitly attack - someone, anyone. They will see this as a loss of face and prestige for Russia. Ironically, they want Putin to do exactly what the US wants Putin to do, namely lose it and lash out. In this sense, the Russian ultra-nationalists are effectively on the same side as the US. Once Putin does lash out, the US and its minions will claim 'rogue state', 'sponsor of terror', etc, etc and slam full economic sanctions on Russia and anyone that deals with Russia.

The key to this is not doing what the Anglo-Zionists desperately want Russia to do. So stay cool, calm, concentrate on the task of getting rid of the terrorists.

Those the elites want to crush will bind together more tightly realising who instigated the assassination.

Dear Putin,

You are right about the provocation aimed at disrupting Syria peace talks.  Who has to gain from this the most?  Turkey.  Its ironic that the lunatic did this supposedly for Syrians when from the times of the Ottomans, Turks have been out to hinder Syrian progress.  I hope you know this being KGB. NATO blindly supported Turkey while the Warsaw Pact blindly supported Syria.  Israel may want an unstable Syria, but it would rather deal with one than many; gorilla type of warfare is extremely difficult to control and an unstable Syria would mean constant security issues in the North Eastern border of Israel and possible spreading of military actions within Israel.

One more thing.  The shooter did not want to harm anyone else but the Ambassador.  Why did they kill him in a country where supposedly Islamist roam the land.  A dead person hs less information to give than someone alive. Turks are very good at sacrificing their own in order to get their people and the international community to support them.  Let me remind you that a few years ago there was a security breach resulting in the publication of documents where MIT and the military orchestrated events to change public and international positions in favor for corrupt Turkey.

Not to long ago you published photos of convoys taking out oil from Syria into Turkey.  In addition to Turkish reporters, you claim and proved to the international community that Turkish officials were arming and funding ISIS in Syria and Iraq with money from Qatar and Saudi Arabia.  The provocation was designed by MIT (Turkish Intelligence Services) for Erdogan and his family members.

Do as you wish, but please don't become a clown and Erdogan's personnal puppet.  I am sure he would like to add you to his harem.  Whether you chose to bend over for him to get off is your choice.



HowdyDoody's picture

Bullshit. Turkey is the monkey, the US and Israel are the organ grinders. The killer was a Gulenist, an extreme Islamist group, whose leader, Fethulen Gulen, resides in the US under the care of the CIA, waiting for an opportunity to takeover the reigns of Turkey.
