The death of Mikhail Lesin is a mystery indeed


When a Russian eminence grise dies - committing suicide, or due to natural causes or a bit of polonium in the tea – every conjecture is possible. And the billionaire king of Putin’s propaganda is no exception. Who was Lesin and why his death does not end in a Washington hotel room?

It could not be avoided. As soon as the news of the discovery of Mikhail Lesin lifeless body has spread, everyone thought of the long arm of the Russian secret services. The speculation about who killed him have flourished on sites and blogs, while the most influential newspapers mostly limited to leave open a question. The only ones with certainties were, as always, the Kremlin controlled Russian media. RT headlined “Lesin dies from heart attack at 57“, and so did everyone else. How they got to know the cause of death before the autopsy, I do not know.

Lesin was not a small fish. He was Minister of the Press under Yeltsin and Putin and, until a few months ago, he headed Gazprom-Media, the holding company that controls the information in Russia.
