Thwarted Peace? Assassination of Russian Ambassador “A False Flag Operation By the West”
Will there be peace again in our lifetimes? That remains to be seen.
As you have probably heard, Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov was shot dead Sunday night at an art gallery right as he was about to give a speech.
The shooter, identified as 22-year-old Turkish policeman Mevlüt Mert Altıntaş, reportedly fired at Karlov eight times, hitting him multiple times in the back before he fell to the ground on his back.
Cameras were rolling the entire time, catching the entire sensational shooting on video.
Was this event staged to thwart peace talks between Turkey and Russia to prevent an end to the Syrian war? It is bizarre enough to have even mainstream sources suggesting the whole thing could have been – an inside job.
Putin was reportedly about to announce a total ceasefire across Syria.
This shooting happened just before Russia and Turkey were scheduled to hold peace talks with Iran concerning Syria – but now, officials from both countries will be dealing with an investigation of this assassination.
These peace talks were planned without the involvement or participation of the United States or United Nations in what was being referred to as “a snub to Washington”.
Now, several Russian officials, including Putin, are convinced it was an effort at sabotage by the West; and President Erdogan has made similar statements for the Turkish side.
