Putin Kritiker sterben unter mysteriösen Umständen

By Phil Bainbridge

August 24, 2023 - Der Tod des Wagner Gruppe Chefs Jewgeni Prigoschin, von dem seine Anhänger glauben, dass es ein Mord des Kremls war, folgt einem Muster mysteriöser Toesfälle von Putin Kritikern.

Prigozhin fell out of favour after vocal criticism of the military leadership
and an attempted coup. Many considered him a dead man walking from that point. Their predictions appear to have come to pass, following the plane crash in which Prigozhin was among 10 passengers and crew to have died.

Previous suspected assassinations include Ravil Maganov, the Lukoil chairman who voiced criticism of the war in Ukraine, Boris Nemtsov, former deputy Prime Minister under Boris Yeltsin and vocal Putin critic, and Boris Berezovsky, the oligarch who fled to the UK and threatened to bring Putin down by force.

Anna Politkovskaya, the journalist who accused Putin of turning Russia into a police state in her book “Putin’s Russia” was murdered in Moscow in 2006, while the former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko who accused Putin of her murder was killed by polonium poisoning in London later that year.
