Moscow has appointed a new ambassador to Ankara, six months after the killing of Russia’s previous envoy Andrei Karlov.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on Monday, appointing Alexei Yerkhov as Moscow’s new ambassador to Turkey.

“Alexei Yerkhov shall be appointed Russia’s new ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary to the Turkish Republic,” the decree said.

Yerkhov, 57, was the head of Russian Foreign Ministry’s Crisis Management Center and worked with Karlov as the Russian consul in Istanbul.
