    So the head of Russia’s nationalist, anti-US propaganda machine preferred living and investing in California? LOL! What did he know that the Russian public is not allowed to find out?

    At age 57, he had already reached the low end of the life expectancy of a Russian male of his generation.

    People who robbed Russia under Eltsin are generally thought to be angels, and those who do it now are very bad boys (and girls). Can anyone explain this?

    Hotel deaths at inopportune times always look suspicious. Maybe all our corrupt leaders will assassinate each other and leave us alone.

    The Kremlin’s propagandist is dead. Bummer.

  13. Anthony Clifton says:

    I hear that Mikhail Lesin, the founder of RT (Russia Today) was found dead in Washington DC

    Mikhail Lesin, a former aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin who helped found the English-language news service Russia Today, was found dead in an upscale Washington hotel room, police and Russian authorities said. He was 57.

    Funny, a lot of people connected to Vladimir Putin have been turning up dead recently? Well, even RT says that the cause of death was a heart attack and not a sinister CIA assassination plot as would normally be expected from RT

    anybody who is remotely familiar with RTs broadcasting knows that this so-called non state owned media outlet is nothing other than the foreign propaganda arm of the Russian government, no more, no less. It broadcasts 24/7 are dominated by Anti-US, Anti- NATO and Anti-EU Propaganda and disinformation that tows the Kremlin line to the letter. Yet while RT pushes it’s vitriol hate propaganda at the U.S. 24/7 The man who founded this network Mikhail Lesin brought property in Los Angeles CA worth $28 Million in Beverly Hills and Brentwood.

    Given the fact that Lesin was a former head of the Ministry of Culture and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation and Beginning in 2004 he became an adviser to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin and given the fact that he recently brought $28 Million in real estate in Los Angeles California. it’s easy to speculate that “Someone ” in Russia might have thought that Mikhail Lesin might of been planning to “Relocate” from Russia. Obviously a man like him would be in possession of a lot of important information about important people in Russia (If you know what I mean) and they might not have been too happy with his “Relocation” plans (If you know what I mean)

    A heart attack and he was only 57 years old. Seems quite young to kick the bucket like that doesn’t it? I”m sure if a man like him with his financial resources knew he had a heart condition, he would have had the best health care money could buy wouldn’t you think? I certainly would, even if there was a family history of heart disease but none of that seems to of mattered. Strange don’t you think?
