The Head of the House of Romanoff offers her condolences on the murder of the Russian ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Gennadievich Karlov


From The Head Of The Russian Imperial House


I was shocked to learn the news of the murder of Andrei Gennadievich Karlov, the Russian Ambassador to Turkey.

I and my son, the Grand Duke George of Russia, extend our deepest condolences to Ambassador Karlov’s family, friends, and colleagues. We pray fervently for the repose of the soul of this exemplary servant of Russia, killed so viciously in the line of duty.

I hope that this heinous crime will be fully investigated by authorities, and that all those responsible for aiding and abetting this act of terrorism will be apprehended and swiftly brought to justice.
