A former aide to president Putin and a billionaire on the side has been beaten to death in DC.


Billionaire Mikhail Y. Lesin died from a heart attack, Russian media said in November when his body was found slumped in the bathroom.



But on Thursday, the district's cheif medical examiner's office said Lesin died from blunt force injuries to his head. The office did not explain the length of time from Lesin's death to its test results being announced, The New York Times reported.

The medical examiner's office also said Lesin's body had blunt force trauma to the neck, torso, arms and legs.




The facts of the case seem askew....the story is definitely twisted.....
What Kind of skullduggery was afoot?
All theories accepted at face value till debunked....bander

Nicknamed the 'Bulldozer', Lesin was one of the key props of the Putin presidency, personally masterminding a wide-ranging media crackdown which has left the vast majority of Russian TV stations and newspapers obedient to the Kremlin.

He also set up Russia Today, now RT, seen by critics as a 'propaganda' channel aimed at the West.

Mere weeks before his death was announced, he fathered a child with glamorous model and flight attendant Victoria Rakhimbayeva.

She is believed to be aged 29, with whom he had enjoyed a close relationship since at least mid-2014, after the break-up of his marriage.

Sounds like he was "Suicided" I mean, "Heart attacked" no. Repeatedly tripped and fell, bashing his own head over and over again as he fell in the bathroom?


Either that or he was murdered.

I don't think clumsy quite covers the extent of the injuries, however he may have suicided by beating himself to death....a tough way to go but hey....to each his own...
He owed somebody much more than he could pay I think...

Maybe the question is "where did he get all his money"? Russia is a kleptocracy.

This is what it is all about:


There are unsubstantiated claims in Moscow that when he died he was in debt to billionaire Yury Kovalchuk, one of Putin's closest big business friends.


Friendship ends where business begins. Note that this unpleasantness happened while Lesin was abroad. This is part of a pattern in Putin's Russia: political messages are delivered openly in Russia (eg; Nemtsov, Politkovskaya) business affairs are settled quietly abroad.

Well this settlement appears a little noisier than possible others......
It would be interesting to know just how deep into the Russian government the Russian mafia has penetrated.....

Well the fact that he was a close ally to Putin who knew his inner workings in the government, and wanted to move to the US after leaving Gazprom Media tells you one thing...

Putin was afraid of what may get told to US intelligence services and needed him relieved of his duty on this Earth.


Lesin stepped down as head of state-controlled Russian broadcasting giant Gazprom-Media in December 2014 for what he described as family reasons. Prior to his resignation, had spent time living in California -- specifically in Beverly Hills -- for several years prior to his death, according to his friends and U.S. court documents.

Just imagine what this man knows about Putin...good and bad.

Can't use the polonium again it provides to much as to who is behind the attack.

Putin Ally Died in U.S. After Drunken Fall, Not Foul Play, Prosecutors Say


WASHINGTON — The mysterious death here of a prominent Russian businessman and former government minister last year was an accident caused by a drunken fall inside his hotel room, the prosecutor’s office announced on Friday as investigators officially closed the case.

The death of Mikhail Y. Lesin, who once played an influential role in President Vladimir V. Putin’s control of the news media in Russia, generated significant attention because of the proximity he had to the Kremlin and the unexpected loss of favor before his self-imposed exile in the United States.

For months, speculation swirled that Mr. Lesin was murdered, perhaps by a commercial rival or, more ominously, as a warning to those who betrayed the Kremlin. While no evidence ever emerged supporting either theory, speculation intensified when the city’s medical examiner in March attributed his death to blunt trauma to his head, neck, limbs and torso.

Now, nearly a year later, the authorities have settled on a more prosaic tale, determining that he died from injuries sustained after a bout of drinking. He was 57.

Authorities now believe the injuries were self inflicted after his death.

A drunken fall caused injuries to his head neck, torso, arms and leg? That sounds like something that would happen to Homer Simpson.

Looks like the US government is covering up for Russia. And as this was back in November, it would be Obama's white house going along with this. Which means we can expect the Dems to have no interest in looking at this particular Russian and the circumstances of his demise.

Why not? Obama and the Clintons have proven connections to Vladimir Putin, yet Congress is ignoring that and obsessing over Paul Manafort's far more tangential connections. It's all a meaningless distraction, to hide the real corruption.
