akarlov 0

On 19 December 2016 the Russian Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the Republic of Turkey Andrey Karlov was killed in a terrorist attack in Ankara.

We strongly condemn this heinous inhuman crime aimed at disrupting collective efforts for political settlement in Syria and the process of normalizing Russia-Turkey relations.

On behalf of the Embassy’s leadership and staff we express deepest condolences to the family and relatives of this outstanding Russian diplomat. His memory will continue to live on in the hearts of everyone who knew him.

These events underline the dire necessity to join efforts in the uncompromising fight against terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.


A Book of Condolences will be open at the Embassy at 316 Brooks Street, Menlo Park, Pretoria on 20-22 December 2016 at 10h00-15h00.

You can also send your messages of condolence online, to the following email: ruspospr@mweb.co.za
