    Russian senator Alexey Pushkov questioned the World Press Photo choice of the photo of the murdered Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov.

    "I have a feeling that there is a moral wormhole in the main award of World Press Photo of the murder of Andrey Karlov, no matter how this prize is explained," — wrote Pushkov on his Twitter account.

    AP correspondent won the World Press Photo-2017 with a photo of the murdered Karlov and his murderer, guns blazing. The head of the jury Stuart Franklin called the photo by Burhan Ozbilici "an incredibly harsh news photo".

    Andrey Karlov was shot dead on December 19 during his speech at the opening of a photo exhibition in Ankara. The killer, a police officer Mevlut Mert Altıntaş was eliminated by the Turkish security forces. The Russian Foreign Ministry called the incident a terrorist attack.



    Kristina Kharlova: I am sure that the terrorist-killer and his supporters would be delighted by such honor and media exposure
