Where are all the good Russian socialists gone?
There is a long history of high-profile Russians turning up dead or seriously ill in foreign countries.
Ah, of course, that's because they all turned dirty capitalists, became gangsters and made too much money. Na, na, that no good, they must die. Those were the orders from the up on high sitting somehwere on an undisclosed cloud.
Aww, we do love Putin over here, don't we? And will always protect Russians from being accused of being the devil incarnate.
Just look, them Russia haters did it again:
Thia was in 2016:
Today Former Putin press minister died of blow to head in Washington hotel - Medical examiner’s office report contradicts Russian TV report that family members of Mikhail Lesin, who died in November, said he had a heart attack.
This is today:
Former Putin adviser had neck fracture at time of death in Washington hotel - New report raises questions about Mikhail Lesin, whose death was ruled an accident but has been shrouded in suspicion
Now really what is mimi going to do with all you Putin lovers? Because so many thingies not fitting the picture and I should ignore them all? Boy, oh boy, you ask a lot of me.
Some excerpts from the above articles:
Mikhail Lesin’s body was found in November (2016) in a room at the Dupont Circle Hotel, in an upmarket neighbourhood that contains foreign embassies and policy thinktanks. Russia’s RT television quoted family members at the time as saying he had died of a heart attack after long-term illnesses.
DC medical examiner’s office said Mikhail Lesin, 59, had blunt force injuries to the head, neck, torso, arms and legs. The manner of death remained “undetermined”, the office’s statement said, and the incident is still under police investigation.
The Russian embassy in Washington had asked several times to be informed about the inquiry into the circumstances of Lesin’s death but had been told nothing.
Lesin was a powerful figure on the Russian political scene but lived most of his life in the shadows.
“Everything gets stranger and stranger,” Alexei Venediktov, the editor in chief of Ekho Moskvy radio wrote on Twitter about the news that Lesin had died of a blow to the head.
Mikhail Lesin (those lovely Russian capitalists) through a company he set up in the 1990s to sell television advertising. He then spent years as , helping bring national television under Kremlin control.
Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE) in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed nearly two years ago. said the documents released by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner show that Mikhail Lesin’s hyoid bone had been completely fractured.
An official, whose name was redacted, is quoted as saying such breaks “are commonly associated with hanging or manual strangulation”, but that it was also possible that the bone was damaged during the autopsy. (me: oh, no kidding, that happens all the time)
Later Mikhail Lesin founded the global news network Russia Today, now known as RT.But he abruptly resigned in December 2014 and was believed by some Moscow-watchers to have fallen out of favor with the Putin government. (Why? Good 'ol Putin got a little impatient with all of those lovers Lesin had at the side?)
Ok, you all know everything about Putin and the Russians. Now tell me, why aren't we in a bubble here, believing that Russia has to be protected from evil Americans, blaming the Russians for everything three times over and then some.
If I ever may have read something about Mickhail Lesin, I had forgotten it. And all those linkage to RT, Gazprom and more (like former German Chancellor Schroeder), I was not aware of.
Look, I still live in the old days, when we had real communists and real socialists and real cold war and not this messy gangster, oligarch, internet mafia powers messing up all my political ideological labels I had for those guys. Those were the times, when everbody knew who was who. The good ol sixties, pre-internet times.
I need some bubble gum to get away from my Russian bubble conspiracy theories in my head. Snoopy, you are the expert, help me!!!
Where are all the socialists gone? Oh, there they are ...thank God I have found some.
Heh, I am no writer and just had to
fart vent. Sorry, that I did. It stinks, I know. So, I will go outside a bit and won't be back until the air is clear.
