MOSCOW, December 20. /TASS/. A plane with the body of assassinated Russian ambassador Andrey Karlov has taken off from Turkey to fly to Moscow, the air control services told TASS on Tuesday.
"The special plane has just taken off from Ankara to fly to Moscow. In about three hours, it will land at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport," the air controllers said.
Karlov’s widow is also aboard the plane. She is being accompanied by a doctor and a psychologist of Russia’s Emergencies Ministry.
The Russian diplomat was assassinated on Monday evening in Ankara during his speech at the opening of a photo exhibition: "Russia from Kaliningrad to Kamchatka as Viewed by a Traveler."
As the Turkish authorities reported, the assassinator was immediately killed by local security forces. The assassinator also wounded three people. The Russian Foreign Ministry characterized the assassination as an international terrorist act.
Russia’s Investigative Committee has opened a criminal case under part 3, article 361 of the Russian Criminal Code ("An Act of International Terrorism Entailing an Individual’s Death").
