This has trouble written all over it. Coordination on this level usually means that the initial killings are done to facilitate a more extensive plan. The last thing we want is for Russia to overreact (like it almost always does) and start a situation that we won’t be able to mediate. Uh, like a conflict from a reactionary slavic giant and a chaotic islamic “republic” with revolutionary underpinnings.
Mirror.co.uk – A Russian diplomat has been found dead from gunshot wounds at his home, it is reported. Russian diplomat ‘found dead from gunshot wounds at home just hours after ambassador killed at art exhibition.
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. Karlov was killed by his police protection officer who screamed “Allahu Akbar” and “Don’t forget Aleppo, don’t forget Syria.”
He was shot in the back by 22-year-old Turkish policeman Mevlut Mert Altintas in what Russia last night described as a “terrorist act”.

In Polshikov’ shooting, reported by Ren TV early today, two empty bullet shells were found in the high-ranking diplomat’s flat.
