Ingushetian President Murat Zyazikov was the victim of an assassination attempt this morning. Rosbalt reports that Zyazikov was traveling on the road from Nazran to Magas in Ingushetia when a VAZ-2107 automobile attempted to break into the procession before the automobile popularly known as a Zhuguli exploded. Fragments of the car scattered over several meters.
Zyazikov and five of his bodyguards were injured and sent to a local hospital. The physician that treated them said they were in stable condition. Preliminary reports say a suicide-terrorist was behind the attempt. An investigation is under way.
Turkey has found itself in a circle of countries subject to US and European sanctions. Are they dangerous for Ankara? What is Turkey going to do in response?
