The mysterious death of former Kremlin aide Mikhail Lesin has gotten even weirder as details have emerged showing that Lesin – or someone pretending to be him – travelled out of the US after his death.
Lesin, the founder of Russia’s RT news agency, largely seen as the Kremlin’s propaganda machine, was found dead in a hotel room in Washington DC on November 5. Although Russian media immediately proclaimed that he had died from a heart attack, many believe foul play was involved – a theory that gained credence last week when US authorities announced Lesin had died from a blow to the head.
Now, just days after that revelation, a Russian activist has published documents purporting to show that Lesin’s passport went through U.S. customs in the Los Angeles airport on December 15 – more than a month after Lesin had been found dead.
