I'm so used to this stuff happening here in the US … that sometimes I forget how it also happens throughout the rest of the world, like in Turkey and now Russia:

"A Russian investigative journalist who wrote about the deaths of mercenaries in Syria has died in hospital after falling from his fifth-floor flat."

The difference is that we in the US keep thinking it's all coincidental, or just the product of crazy conspiracy theorists. But, honestly, how many coincidences does it take for us to become suspicious of someone anyone be they our favorites or not? :)

PS. Maybe there'll be a movie, novel or Pulp game about this in the future.

It's amazing how many Russians critical of Putin or his regime keep passing away. Deleted by Moderator

NOt surprising. My understanding is that Putin was in the KGB. Business as usual.

And I just heard from a source that Merkel may have really been a Stasi informant and that she has provided positions in her internet "hate crime" unit for a lot of former DDR State Propaganda staff.

But that leader's past is still not as open as Putin's own KGB past. :)

KGB is a less … objectionable agency than the Stasi, after all.
