MOSCOW, December 20. /TASS/. Security has been stepped up at Turkey’s diplomatic missions in Russia after the assassination of Russian Ambassador to Ankara Andrei Karlov, Interior Ministry’s official spokesperson Irina Volk told TASS on Tuesday.
"The police stepped up security at diplomatic missions of Turkey in the Russian Federation. Security is being ensured round-the-clock at Turkey’s Embassy in Moscow and consulate generals in Russian cities," Volk said.
A gunman opened fire at the Russian diplomat at the opening of the photo exhibition "Russia from Kaliningrad to Kamchatka in the eyes of a traveler" in Ankara on Monday. Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokeswoman Maria Zakharova confirmed that Karlov died from the injuries. She said Moscow considers this as a terrorist attack.
Turkish authorities said the attacker was immediately liquidated by local security forces. Three other people were injured on the scene. A source in the Russian Embassy in Ankara told TASS that there were no Russians among those injured.
