In Turkey, said about the detention of a man involved in the assassination of Ambassador Andrei Karlov

Turkish media reported that the police arrested a man suspected of involvement in the attempted assassination of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrei Karlov. Recall that the Russian ambassador was killed by several shots in the back of 19 December 2016, at the Center for Contemporary Art in the capital of Turkey. The immediate killer of Andrei Karlov was the 22-year-old ex-employee (still it is not clear whether he was former or active) of the police Mevlut Mert Altyntash. It was eliminated in the course of the operation by Turkish special forces soldiers. Earlier it was reported that Altyntash had two accomplices.

Now it is reported that one of Altyntash's accomplices was taken into custody. RIA News with reference to the Turkish media publishes the initials of the offender: V.K.A.

In Turkish news issues claim that this person is allegedly a member of an organization headed by preacher Fethullah Gulen. He was previously dismissed from public service.

It is known that the same person was delayed earlier (on suspicion of participating in a coup attempt), but was then released for lack of evidence.

Based on these data, it is quite possible to assume that in this case the Turkish authorities are solving their problems, stating that an unnamed V.K.A. is an accomplice of the killer Andrei Karlov. In opposition Turkish circles, it is noted that in this way Ankara can jail a person suspected of having links with the so-called “Gulenists”, and accusations of involvement in the murder of the Russian ambassador are a pretext.

      Nafig Gulen quarrel with Russia? Yes, every week Turkey accuses him of terrorism and demands extradition from the USA. The US does not give up under the pretext of "unprovenness." He will not substitute with the murder of the ambassador. And quarreling Russia with Turkey was pointless, just a year after our plane was shot down.
      So get on Turkey drives.

        Here you can only agree. Especially after the words
        that this person is allegedly part of an organization led by preacher Fethullah Gülen
        the "Turet Sultan," decided out of the blue, on the "bones" of the Russian ambassador, to play politics with an old foe. Nothing holy.

    Fethullah Gulen
    Whom and for what reason the Turks do not delay, all turn out to be "associates" of Gulen.

    For that, the killer was buried with honors. And we hide it.
