The grieving wife and mother of Russia's ambassador to Turkey, Andrey Karlov, who was shot dead the day before, escorted him during his last return to his homeland: the body of the diplomat was flown to Russia.
The wife of Karlova Marina was with her husband at an exhibition in Ankara, when the then still unknown shooter shot him. From the unexpected sounds of shots, the woman fell to the floor along with other people and did not immediately understand what had happened.
When she learned that her husband died after 11 gunshot wounds, she suffered a nervous breakdown.
The body of Charles in the coffin, wrapped in a Russian flag, was met at the Vnukovo airport by the Russian military, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt авavuşoлуlu.
