TASS: Killer of Russia ambassador fired from police after July's abortive putsch — media

MOSCOW, December 19. /TASS/. The man who assassinated the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, on Monday night is identified as Mevlut Mert Altintas, a former office of the Turkish police who was fired from the forces of law and order in the course of investigation of the July 15 abortive putsch, Haberturk news portal said.
Altintas, 22, was involved in FETO terrorist organization.
The assassin was killed by security guards on the spot and a police ID was found on him.
Which security killed him? 
He should have been quite easy to identify- since he went in front of all the cameras present and made a political rant/chant.
Turkey is infiltrated in many ways-

Fatal shooting of Ankara envoy will not affect Russia-Turkey ties: Russian official


Turkey will not allow Monday's shooting of Russia's ambassador to Ankara to "cast a shadow" over Turkish-Russian friendship, the foreign ministry said on Monday, expressing deep sadness and condemning the "lowly terrorist attack".
The statement, paying tribute to the ambassador as being a well respected diplomat, said the attacker had been "neutralised" and that those responsible for the attack would be brought to justice"
There will be no fresh cooling in relations between Moscow and Ankara, no matter how strongly our strategic opponents in Ankara and the West want this," said Leonid Slutsky, chairman of the State Duma or lower house of parliament's international affairs committee.
"It's a horrendous tragedy, but relations between our states will not suffer" he added.

FM Çavuşoğlu learns about assassination of Russian envoy on plane to Moscow

 Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu was informed about the fatal shooting of Russian ambassador to Russia, Andrev Karlov while he was on the planet to Moscow, a Turkish official said.

A crisis management team was formed in the foreign ministry immediately after the attack and the necessary information was delivered to Russia through diplomatic channels, the officials said.
Çavuşoğlu was reported to be in direct coordination with the team while he was on the plane and also after he landed in Moscow.

 The attack comes a day before FM Çavuşoğlu, Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif of Iran were to hold unprecedented tripartite talks on the Syria conflict in Moscow.

I want my readers to pay attention  to who is spinning this episode in order to demonize Turkey. Because Putin isn't going there! Turkey and Russia are making clear statements that this was a provocation because of their cooperation wrt Syria And the normalization of the two nations relations- I've written at length about this cooperation while many in the so called alt media have continued on with their disinfo/misinfo ways- Here's your chance to discern readers...

UPDATE # 3- 3:55 PM EST 

 Putin: Russian ambassador's murder provocation aimed at undermining Syria peace process

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.

Saying that ambassador Andrey Karlov "was a brilliant diplomat, widely respected in the country where he was posted," the president added the Russian diplomat "was in good standing with both the government of Turkey and other political groups in that country."
Russia's Investigative Committee has already launched an investigation into the murder, Putin said in his statement, adding that he had held a phone conversation with his Turkish counterpart, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, on the matter. Russian and Turkish officials will cooperate, Putin added.
"We have to know who organized this killing and gave orders to the assassin," the Russian leader said.

Putin also ordered security to be strengthened at Russia's diplomatic missions abroad, as well as Turkish missions in Russia.
Saying that he knew Karlov personally, and calling him a "kind man," the president tasked officials with awarding the assassinated ambassador posthumously and initiating a memorial for him.
"He was killed while performing his duties," Putin said.

UPDATE #4 - 6: 02 EST

Turkish, Russian and Iranian FMs to meet on humanitarian crisis in Syria

Turkish, Russian and Iranian foreign ministers are expected to meet in Moscow on December 20 to discuss the Syrian crisis amid recent diplomatic traffic between Turkey, Russia and Iran over the humanitarian crisis and the evacuation operation in Aleppo.

The defense ministers of the three countries will also hold a meeting on the same day, Russian military said.
The military said on Monday that Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu will host his Iranian counterpart Hossein Dehghan and Turkey's Fikri Işık.
The head of the Russian Duma later confirmed that scheduled talks between the foreign ministers of Russia, Turkey and Iran will take place despite the assassination of Russian ambassador to Ankara Andrey Karlov on Monday evening.


  1. Russian Defense Ministry described the statement recently made by U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby about the alleged threat of terrorists striking Russian cities and Russia's possible war losses in Syria as unacceptable.

    "His words are an utmost transparent confession made by the U.S. side that all the opposition allegedly conducting a civil war in Syria is a kind of cross-border terrorist International under U.S. control," the ministry's spokesperson Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said on Thursday.

    "The masks have been removed, haven't they, sirs?" Konashenkov said.

    "I'm sure that John Kirby, who quite recently changed the uniform of a rear admiral in the Pentagon for the suit jacket of a spokesman for the U.S. State Department, is well aware of the effects of his own statement," Konashenkov went on.

    "What is especially appalling in John Kirby's statement is that the scale of the direct American influence on activities of the terrorists is global and can get as far as Russia," he said.

    "Certainly, one may carry on saying that they [U.S. in Syria] are persistent, though without success, in trying to separate the terrorists of Jabhat al-Nusra from the opposition," he said.

  2. This was definitely a planned provocation!

  3. Revisit story about Iran drone and Turkish troops

    Time for an SLBM test Barents?

    3. hey anonymous- hubby read the news to me and I said in response to him- France, Replay

      What scares the sh!t out of me right now is... Is there going to be another coup attempt? Cause that's what happened last time..

    4. Or is it distraction from the assassination?

    5. Altıntaş is Turkish for Goldstein

    6. What do you mean about the coup attempt, Penny?


      Switzerland too..



      Look at the hat. While Dunford was there

    10. Timing

    11. re Hebdo almost seems like a hard sell campaign?

    12. hi ally
      the July coup attempt was immediately preceded by the bastille day truck incident-
      July 15

      Goldstein? Interesting.


      Dec12 Israel urges Egypt to ‘fight terrorism together’

      Tunisia assassination

      Egypt Coptic bombing

      Azerbaijan next?

    14. This was a series of well organised attacks, all those that took place today are part of the same plot. To divert attention from the assassination in Ankara.
      Who is it that has warned us about assassinations in Turkey? Oh yes! Zionist Michael Rubin.
      The ambassador was executed on camera, this was a direct counter attack from the dark forces, who have been defeated in Aleppo.
      This humiliated Turkey, & exposed that Erdogan has no control over the country. The CIA Gülenist network is deeply entrenced. Erdogan is not going to survive for long.
      The CIA publicly executed a Russian diplomat today in order to send a message. This is the most serious event since 9/11.

    15. Hey Rescue:

      "Who is it that has warned us about assassinations in Turkey? Oh yes! Zionist Michael Rubin"

      I thought about that today...

    16. The head of one of the departments of the Russian Foreign Ministry found shot dead in Moscow, according to the source REN TV journalists. Officially, this information is not confirmed in the department.

      Bangladesh police officer says the SWIFT hack and stolen money was an inside job

      Dhaka policeman Alam told Reuters his investigations had discovered that some bank officials had knowingly created vulnerabilities in the bank's connection to the SWIFT system. "Bangladesh Bank's SWIFT network was made insecure by some bank employees in connivance with some foreign people," he said. "They knew what they were doing."

    18. the SWIFT system was used to hack a Turkish back also

      December 16/2016

      Hackers targeted Turkey's Akbank via the SWIFT global money transfer system in an attack which the bank said had not compromised customer data but would cost it up to $4 million.

      Just days before the assassination of the Ambassador-

  4. It's amazing the spin on this news- despite the reports this guy had been purged after the coup attempt-- some outfits have this guy as special forces and more

    here is NYT's

    "Turkish officials said the killer had been a police officer"

    All past tense- He had been but he is not now

    I like the facts :)

    1. Strange the nyt and facts seem so? Since the purge of Golan (spelling?)followers was after the overthrow maybe this one should have been put in jail.

      False flag to make Turkey look bad to Russia and slow down or stop the southern stream pipe line?
      Then there is that thingy about working with Russia, Syria, and Iran on the virus Amerika is spreading in the region.

      Oh it's official trump won and the race to the bottom will now speed up.

    2. hey jo
      ya, saw the news on trump...sigh
      trump and true dough- like two peas in a pod

  5. Very bad state of affairs. I've checked on the news and here a couple of times today.

    still absorbing info, so no opinion to add other than you can bet Russia will take care of this in their own way.

  6. HI
    Does look a bit staged. Pics in background have a cannon and to the left a bowl of flowers as if left in remembrance. Haven't checked the video.
    Perhaps a new twist to the fake news thang. Some sites were showing the shooters finger in a safety position, i.e. not touching the trigger.
    Russia and Turkey get caught out doing dodgy news stories which means all the Nato stories are real.
    The Ambassador's body seemed a bit splayed to me , me being not an expert.

    1. "Russia and Turkey get caught out doing dodgy news stories which means all the Nato stories are real"

      Aferrismoon: can you clarify what you mean?
      I'm not understanding?
      Thanks :)

  7. Today's events also serve the duel purpose of preventing any further info from getting out about the Captured ZioAmerican operatives in Aleppo. If Russian /Syria held on to them, instead of probably letting them go, a couple of captured the "operatives" could be getting a one way trip to Hades as retribution for the Russian ambassador. It seems Russia refuses to see the kind of evil its facing. No matter how many setbacks the ZioAmericans encounter this has always been a total sum game for them, its time for Russia to take the gloves off, as the capture of Aleppo has opened a window of increasing escalation.

    1. Yah, that would've gone down the memory hole

  8. So Turkey is grilled... As a result Russian turists do not come to Turkey anymore, they are scared. No turists no cash. Economic crisis, radicals in every Turkish city, jailded or fired gulenists, angry Kurds, angry oridinary people... There are ideal conditions for civil war in Turkey.

    1. loco

      'There are ideal conditions for civil war in Turkey"

      Yes, they are. Exactly as has been created.

  9. Hi
    Just the usual double-think.
    If this is a fake , because it's current, then the less than popular Russians and Turks will carry the can for all fake news, via the usual MSM blitz headlines and thus, by MSM logic , the good people can never have taken part in fake news,such as White Helmets etc etc. At some point I assume there will be a fake news story which the MSM can then focus on as the be-all and end-all of fake news and because the MSM have uncovered it then their stories can't be fake, according to the usual simplistic journalism propagated by the aforesaid MSM. They have to uncover a 'real fake news story' to capitalise on the fake news meme giving them 'authority'.


    1. thanks aferrismoon

      I understand the point your making :)
