The assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey at an art gallery in Ankara was caught on video.

Andrey Karlov was fatally shot by a gunman in a suit who shouted about Aleppo, Syria, and yelled “Allahu Akbar,” during the attack, the Associated Press reports.

The gunman has been identified as a Turkish police officer, Mert Altintas.

Video of the shooting shows Karlov giving his speech in the capital city of Ankara when gunfire erupts. Karlov reacts to being shot and then falls to the ground. The camera then switches to the accused attacker, Mert Altintas, who can be seen firing into the air and then yelling.

According to CNN, the gunman screamed in Arabic, “Allahu akbar (God is great),” before saying in Turkish, “Do not forget Aleppo! Do not forget Syria! Do not forget Aleppo! Do not forget Syria!”

Altintas allowed the others in attendance at the gallery to leave, saying he was not trying to harm them, and was there to die, witnesses said.

“Only death will remove me from here. Everyone who has taken part in this oppression will one by one pay for it,” he said, according to CNN.

Russian officials confirmed that Karlov was killed in the attack.

“We regard this as a terrorist act,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told Reuters. “Terrorism will not win and we will fight against it decisively.”

The shooting occurred at the Contemporary Arts Gallery in Ankara’s central Cankaya district, according to Anadolu, the Turkish state-run media agency.

Karlov was speaking at the opening of a photo exhibit called “Russia as seen by Turks.”

Altintas was later killed in a shootout with security forces.

Altintas became a police officer in 2014, according to a police yearbook photo posted on Twitter by Turkish media.

He was a member of the Ankara police special operations force, according to local media.

Ankara’s mayor, Melih Gokcek, said the attack was aimed at disrupting relations between Russia and Turkey, Reuters reports.

I wonder if all the Syrians about to die will think this was worth it. The previous days of people being allowed to flee Aleppo and anywhere else are over. The Russians will employ scorched earth now.

“will employ scorched earth”? That is how the russian looters and rapists do it. Look at Grozny. Their weapons (stolen technology from humans) concentrate on strategic deterrence, thus their drunken rapist conscripts only have to worry about ‘fighting’ unarmed civilians and when they get their butts kicked, they pull back and just bomb the city into berlin, 1945.
The degenerate russians are only ‘good’ at killing unarmed civilians…usually from a distance.

degenerate kommrade, please stop your fake glory of your great patriotic gang rape, what we humans call World War II. The only reasons why you russians weren’t wiped out like rats was because the US destroyed the manufacturing and transportation infrastructure of germany. So the germans and their allies from 20 countries fighting you russian bolshevik apes ran out of fuel, food, and ammuntion. Even you glorious rapists and looters can “win” when they fight unarmed, starving people.

The greatest tragedy in the history of the world is that after WWII, only two of the three threats to mankind were eliminated. The disease called ‘russia’ was still left standing to infect humans.

boom boom, out goes the russian. Guess that’s how some people have to make them pay for bombing their cities into 1945 Berlin. They did it in Grozny Chechnya, complete with also setting up extermination camps for those fleeing the russian genocide of them.
Good day, it’s cold out, but russians are dying. Hope for humanity yet.
