Today Senator Frantz Klintsevich, deputy chairman of the Russian upper chamber’s defence and security committee, said: “It was a planned action,” the Mail Online reported. “Everyone knew that he was going to attend this photo exhibition. It can be ISIS, or the Kurdish army which tries to hurt Erdogan.
“But may be – and it is highly likely – that representatives of foreign NATO secret services are behind it. What has happened is a true provocation, a challenge. It is a challenge for Russia.”
Note that another Russian diplomat was shot to death in his home in Moscow the same day. The only conspiracy theory that makes any sense is that NATO and the neocons want to provoke war between Russia and Turkey while the USA is still obligated by treaty to go to war on Turkey’s behalf.
A Russian diplomat has been found dead from gunshot wounds at his home, it is reported. Petr Polshikov, 56, was discovered with a bullet injury to his head at his flat in Moscow’s Balaklavsky Prospekt, according to local media. The alleged shooting came just hours after the news broke of the assassination of Russian ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov. Polshikov was said to be a senior figure in the Latin American department of the Russian foreign ministry.
It’s not exactly a secret that the neocons are desperate for a US-Russian war since they haven’t been able to generate a US-Iranian war despite more than 10 years of beating their war drums.
