The leader of the USSR, Joseph Stalin, died 70 years ago, on March 5, 1953, following a stroke. Many versions about the poisoning of the Soviet leader by his entourage have no solid foundation, says Sergei Devyatov, adviser to the head of the SFO, reports RIA Novosti.
According to the historian, the story of Stalin’s illness and all information about the last days of his life is in the public domain. From the point of view of medicine, everything is quite prosaic and understandable – the leader of the USSR died of a stroke that struck him four days earlier.
There are, of course, various conspiracy theories. But the fact is that those who propose them do not really imagine the security system that existed with Stalin,” Devyatov noted.
It was even theoretically impossible to throw Joseph Stalin into his own dacha, the historian points out. The person of the Soviet leader, tightly covered by guards, is rather to blame for his own death. Stalin’s order not to approach him without permission played a cruel joke on the head of the Soviet Union. However, he had panic buttons installed throughout the building.
The historian clarifies that at the time of the stroke, information about Stalin’s condition was suppressed in every possible way. About the leader of the Union, lying half-dead on the sofa, they said he was “resting”. The best specialists were assigned to the politician, who were not arrested in the “doctors’ case”. However, the Soviet leader was no longer saved.
“You can once and for all close the topic of what happened 70 years ago,” Devyatov concluded.
Earlier, the “regional head” reported on the death of a fighter of the “immortal Stalingrad” Mubariz Mammadov. The soldier saved his comrade, who fell under fire from the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
