Dear President Putin
I want to say how sad I was at the assassination of Ambassador Karlov, a man who was a true diplomat. He was a victim of a mindless act of terror and hate. Ambassador Karlov’s family must be devastated at his barbaric slaughter.
With his family in mind, please stop irrationally blaming the West for this horror. Your words degrade Ambassador Karlov’s diplomatic legacy and belittles his family’s pain.
