A SENIOR figure within Russia’s foreign ministry is reported to have died from gunshot wounds at his Moscow flat just hours after the assassination of Russia’s ambassador in Turkey yesterday afternoon.
According to unconfirmed reports, a man’s body, believed to be one of the department heads within Russia’s foreign ministry, was found dead early this morning. Two shells were allegedly found alongside a gun under the kitchen sink.
The wife of the man, who has not been named, is said to have been at the apartment. The Kremlin has not confirmed or denied the reports. Meanwhile speculation abounds over whether the alleged incident could have been murder or suicide.
The shocking news comes after Russia’s ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, was gunned down at an art gallery in the capital, Ankara. Footage from the incident shows a gunman, in a suit, pointing his gun at the crowd and shouting “Allah Akbar” before adding, “You Russians destroyed Aleppo and Syria”.
