MOSCOW, December 20. /TASS/. Russia closely considers all possible outcomes posed as a threat from the developments in war-torn Syria and resorts to relevant measures to safeguard the national security, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
"We are resorting to all the necessary measures and we definitely take into account all potential threats during our work," Peskov told journalists when asked whether the assassination of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrei Karlov could be somehow connected with Russia’s current involvement in the Syrian developments.
The spokesman said Russia was already taking measures to protect its diplomatic missions round the globe.
"The situation is being analyzed constantly with information coming from all countries," Peskov said. "There are certainly the countries where the threat alert is higher and the countries with the lower threat alert."
"However, we are resorting to all necessary measures based on the results of such analysis," he added.
Russian Ambassador to Turkey Karlov was gunned down during the opening ceremony of a photo exhibition devoted to Russia in the Center for Contemporary Art in Turkey’s capital Ankara on Monday evening.
Three Turkish nationals were wounded during the attack and the assailant - a 22-year-old former police officer - was killed by local security forces. Russia’s Foreign Ministry said the assassination of the ambassador was an act of terrorism.
