According to the embassy “Karlov was shot by a gun while making a speech at a painting exhibition in the Turkish capital,” Turkish news outlet Hurriyet reported.
Specifically, the photography exhibition was entitled, “Russia through the Eyes of Turks,” Tass News reports. Eye witnesses told the Russian news outlet that the attacker “cried out ‘Get away from here.'”
The attack comes as the Russia-Turkey brokered ceasefire continued in Aleppo, Syria amid a tenuous attempt at peace talks between the nations, leading many to speculate that the attack could have far-reaching implications.
As Hurriyet notes, Turkish foreign minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu is scheduled to meet in Moscow on Tuesday “for talks on Syria with his Russian and Iranian counterparts.”
