The wounding of Alexander Poganshev, the head of administrative affairs at the Belarus Embassy, was an “ordinary crime”, said Çavuşoğlu, according to the Interior Ministry.
It was not politically motivated, he told reporters after visiting the hospital where Poganshev was being treated.
Çavuşoğlu said a neighbor shot Poganshev as a result of a personal dispute between them. The neighbor, who was a retired military officer, committed suicide at the scene after the shooting. The attack took place in Ankara’s OR-AN district.
