Unexpected deaths of six Russian diplomats in four months triggers conspiracy theories

When Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations died suddenly in New York last week, he became the sixth Russian diplomat to die unexpectedly since November, leaving internet conspiracy theorists trying to spot a pattern.

Vitaly Churkin, 64, was rushed to hospital from his office at Russia’s UN mission on 20 February, after becoming ill without warning on his way in to work.

It was initially reported that Mr Churkin may have suffered a heart attack, but following an autopsy medical examiners said the death required further study.

Media company Axios note that not only is Mr Churkin’s death unexplained, but it is also remarkably similar to the deaths of Russia’s Ambassador to India on 27 January, the country’s consul in Athens on 9 January, and a Russian diplomat in New York on US election day, 8 November.

5. Yeah.. Athens?!

Athens...

President Obama suprised us in late October 2016 when he announced he'd do another visit to Greece / Athens, and then Berlin in November. Everybody expected him visiting Poland in July to be the last trip to Europe.

Related?!

6. So the choice Trump co-conspirators face is...

'Do I stick with Trump and the world belongs to me...
But am I gonna get jabbed with a poison dart...
Or am I gonna be indicted and spend my life in jail...
But maybe Trump will just blow up the world, so who cares
Hey maybe I should whistleblow and stop this madness
But I love all my Republican VIP percs...
Oh dear my wife and daughters despise me
Oh but those percs. Oh dear what if they find out
what we really did.......'

Somehow I don't think anyone in the Trump regime
is sleeping very well lately. Hahaha.

9. That is also true.

A bunch of people trying to investigate the Russian apartment bombings ended up dead - so Putin could start his own Chechen war to win power.
