UPDATED: Turkish Intel Murders Russian Ambassador in Ankara, in Erdogan False Flag Ploy



The Russian envoy to Turkey was wounded after a gunman stormed into a building where the official was attending a Russian photo exhibition. Within an hour or so the Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed that he had sadly died from his wounds.

The ambassador, Andrey Karlov, was gunned down as he was about to deliver a speech on the opening of the exhibition “Russia in the eyes of Turks.”

The perpetrator, who was wearing a suit and a tie, shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ (‘God is great’ in Arabic) during the attack, AP reports, citing their own photographer. The attacker also said several words in Russian, according to the news agency, and damaged several of the photos at the expo.Turkish NTV broadcaster says that three other people were also injured in the attack on the ambassador. Hurriyet newspaper, citing their own reporter, says that the perpetrator also fired warning shots in the air before targeting Karlov.

The gunman got away, if you can imagine that.  They then gunned down a patsy, probably a Kurd, it’s Mossad false flag 101.  They have to get better at this, they are being all too predictable – our own Kevin Barrett predicted something like this was going to happen two days ago.


Timed to coincide with the UNSC vote on Aleppo peace keepers, this assassination pushes the real news to page two.

Our sources indicate that this attack against the Russian ambassador to Turkey was perpetrated at the orders of Israel’s Netanyahu and done with full cooperation of Turkish authorities, heating up things to push Trump into a war footing at day one.

The gunman shouted ‘Aleppo’ as he pulled the trigger. It is almost inevitable that he will be identified as a Kurd, probably a Syrian Kurd.


Make no mistake, this was a Mossad hit, the killer stood over the fallen ambassador and pumped 8 shots into his body.

The Mossad hands are all over this, the same people who infiltrated the Trump campaign via their Infowars and Breitbart fronts, the same people who, ultimately were behind 9-11, the same people responsible for nearly all the terrorism and wars of recent times.

This is Sarajevo, 1914 all over again, a Zionist-sponsored gunman kills a major governmental figure in order to destabilise an entire region and plunge it into war.

However, this time there is one crucial difference – in 1914, many in Austro-Hungary were absolutely clamouring for war on Serbia, in particular, Chief of Staff Conrad von Hotzendorf, therefore the death of Franz Ferdinand was like throwing a match into a bucket of petrol. Today, Russia does not want a war, there are no von Hotzendorfs in Putin’s inner circle pushing for war, therefore we can only hope that this Zionist ploy does not have the same outcome as 1914, which led to tens of millions of deaths and the destruction of the Empires of Europe, most bloodily the Russian one, to be replaced by the Zionist ‘Bolshevik’ regime that went on to murder at least 100 million Russians.

Of course, Putin and the Russian leadership do not need such a history lesson, they, like almost all Russians, have not forgotten what the Zionist Communists did to them. Furthermore, they possess far cooler heads than the Habsburg court did in 1914, therefore we can only hope their reaction to this atrocity is far more considered than the Austro-Hungarians in 1914. Netanyahu can count himself lucky that it isn’t von Hotzendorf sitting in Moscow in command of thousands of thermonuclear missiles.

Netanyahu is playing a most dangerous game, he is playing the Turks, the Russians, the Americans, the Germans and half a dozen lesser powers off against each other, he seems to think that spreading distrust and hostility, sowing the seeds of war, will enable the Zionist Likud that runs Israel to achieve it’s ambitions. He may, however, be sowing the seeds of his own destruction, and he would take Israel down with him.

  1. Ian, any Sorcha Faal story is discredited from the first line. It’s called ‘poisoning the well’. It’s a good way of killing a story. More generally, there is no such thing as 100% accurate news. The egregious Sorcha Faal was used to kill a very important story in March 2015 about the dismissal of Capt. Heather Cole. It seems that she prevented Ash Carter launching a limited nuclear strike in support of a coup to remove Putin. This is a story that had to be suppressed at all costs. The confirmed details are damning. Sorcha Faal is therefore worth critical reading. All reading of serious news needs to be critical.

    • It’s not a good analysis, but I tend to agree that there are some incongruities, the whole scenario doesn’t ‘feel’ quite right, but without more data, I really don’t know what to think. For it to be a staged hoax, the Russians and the Turks would have to be behind it and I have difficulty seeing what either would have to gain from the scenario. However, I remain open minded and will be keeping a close eye on subsequent developments.

  2. Sorcha Faal is a disinfo op. It seems clear that Israel is trying to blame the US for the Ankara shooting.

  3. Quote from Reuters article on AOL News:
    MOSCOW, Dec 19 (Reuters) -“President Vladimir Putin said on Monday that the killing of Russia’s ambassador to Turkey was a despicable provocation aimed at spoiling Russia-Turkey ties and derailing Moscow’s attempts to find, with Iran and Turkey, a solution for the Syria crisis.

    In televised comments, Putin, speaking at a special meeting in the Kremlin, ordered security at Russian embassies around the world to be stepped up and said he wanted to know who had “directed” the gunman’s hand.

    He heaped praise on the murdered Russian ambassador, Andrei Karlov, who was shot in the back and killed as he gave a speech at an Ankara art gallery, and made clear that Moscow’s response to his assassination would be robust.”

    • I think Putin is deadly serious about this murder and will go to the ends of the earth to chase down the perpetrators. No more fun and games this time. Whoever did this dastardly act made a serious mistake this time. Putin is nobody’s fool.

  4. Admittedly I thought ‘false flag’ first off. However, we should get some facts clear:
    Reportedly, the asassin did no ‘storm the venue’, but merely strolled in, showing his police ident’ being mistaken for the ambassador’s NON EXISTENT security.
    Q- Why was security not provided- and by his nationals?
    Q2- Who knew ahead of time that he would be unprotected?
    (Obviously the gunman knew- He was dressed like a plainclothes secure detail- not even like a cop )
    How many others were shot. Who are they?
    Is the available video footage continuous- including that in which the gunman was ‘allegedly’ shot?
    Or does it break before the cops shoot-out?
    Internal and external closed circuit footage- available?
    Or unaccountably ‘missing’ – as in now standard false flag performances?

  5. No NATO country is to be allowed to cooperate on its own with Russia and its military, not even for a gasoline fill up. God forbid a mines clean up or military games. A sad pathetic world. Gavrilo Princip, may your London tutors rot in hell. NATO, may your ideologists die a more shameful intellectual and spiritual death than that of Lenin.

  6. Where was the Ambassadors security detail?

    Putin will respond in his own time and choosing, VT readers are up to the challenge on this one, lead story and look at the comments already, excellent.

    • Where was his security detail? Indeed. That’s what I asked. But then this kind of slack, or non existent protection/ unprofessionalism is what we have come to expect from Russians- Those busses sent out to pick up civilians- with no armed escort- got torched by the terrorists.
      The dreadful Palmeira fiasco!
      A–Akhbaa on a f++in bike! These are only the latest three blundering gifts to the NW-terror.
      More to follow no doubt, if the Ruskies don’t start getting their kit together.

  7. I don’t know who killed Russian ambassador but this phrase in the article “the Zionist ‘Bolshevik’ regime that went on to murder at least 100 million Russians” is not truth. During of Civil War in Russia was murdered from 7 to 13 millions of peoples.

    • How many Russians died between 1917 and 1991 due to the regime? How many disappeared into the Gulags never to be seen again? How many starved to death in the Ukraine in the 1930s? How many starved later thanks to the disastrous collectivisation policies? A huge number, the civil war was just the start of that horrific era.

    • Not only that- as Ian replies, but also it is a most significant aspect of who (((>))) targeted: After they slaughtered the aristos and priests and siezed their gold, then they turned to systematically identifying and exterminating- (culling) the intellectuals, and educated- just the sorts of people you would need working for you, after taking over the country. But no. (((their))) plan was not merely one of conquest, but the ancient, genocidal prescription, as shown over and over again in their rotten book, and the gory commands of their horrible, monstrous god.
      It will take many hundreds of years to breed back that intellect in Russia.

  8. I urge Kevin and the other VT editors to put out a fake NY Times edition front page with solely this story on it. Of course make it clear it is fake with a date of say April 1, 2016 and other disclaimers. Maybe you could also include a fake story about Trump losing the electoral college or something of that sort too.

  9. Andrei Karlov on the frontlines for peace shot in the back in a heinous act in the plot for war…. the heart of Russia beats strong with love coming in from all over the world sharing in the great loss of a great man, who in our hearts lives on

  10. Twitter, Fakebook, Tor and VPN access were restircted moer and more the last few days in Turkey, so Turkey was cutoff from international information sources.

  11. I was thinking about writing “Who shot the Ambassador? Same folks who shot the Archduke” but then saw Ian beat me to it. This is a Bibi Netanyahu hit all the way. “Allahu akbar” my Irish Muslim ass. The correct translation of this one would be “Yahweh Akbar.” Typical Zionist destabilization and chaos mongering so they can be left to pick up the pieces, just like WWI (orchestrated to get the Balfour Declaration) and WWII (orchestrated to get “Israel”).

    • Well said Kevin, we are in full agreement on this one. In 1914 the Serbs got the blame, today it is the Kurds. Serbia lost a greater proportion of it’s population in WW1 than any other nation, let us fervently hope we don’t get another war and the same thing happens to the Kurds.

    • As always, zerohedge twists the truth. Sabah made no mention of the CIA, did not blame the US at all, same with the rest of the Turkish press, the only one that mentioned the CIA was Yeni Safak. a tabloid rag. So no, the Turkish press is not blaming US and the CIA, Erdogan and Casuvoglu have not mentioned the US in any official statements. Zerohedge is a known disinfo site so unless a Turkish govt figure actually makes a public statement blaming the US, then it’s just more fake news.

    • “Make no mistake, this was a Mossad hit, the killer stood over the fallen ambassador and pumped 8 shots into his body.”
      So . . . at least nine bullets in his body, fired point-blank, yet he died later in hospital. “You couldn’t make it up!”
      And where’s the blood from the nine bullet holes? Since his heart was still beating the floor should have been awash with blood.
      The whole thing has the stench of a psy-op.

  12. The shooting could be a message from the Caliphate which Turkey wants to head. The shooting is a threat to Russia. Thinking about the gunman’s words, they were from radical Islam and thinking about it being a Mossad hit that is claimed, the Mossad and Zionists are also for stratification of the Middle East, and thinking about the role of the current Turkish regime, its goals fall along those same lines. Also Trump is on the side of segregation, now will Moscow see their goal and be opposed to it? That is what remains to be seen or will the Russians fall in line with the control mechanism of segregationism that is angry about the Russian victory in Aleppo?.

    • If war happens then the Russians are on the side of segregationism because they are giving the Caliphate and Zionists what they want, conflict to create their reality, as opposed to peace through working together based on the Aleppo agreement. The Russians should call out who is behind this. Alas, that will probably never happen.

  13. I do hope we will find out the origin and the inspire of this coward act. The emotions say: kill ’em all, but we must be firm and confident. Revenge – a dish best served cold. We do not even know whose lives my country will take, back for this cowardly crime.

  14. Wow… There are absolutely no limits the Israelis won’t go to when they don’t get want they want… Seriously wasn’t it enough for the Israelis shooting down a Russian commercial and ordering the Turks to shoot an warplane enough? Wasn’t it enough to give the location of the Russian Field Hospital in Aleppo?

    Wasn’t all of that and more enough, they are now ordering, planning and executing hits on Russian Ambassadors? Seriously…? when will someone put a stop to the filthy Israelis?
