Russian Consul In Athens Found Dead

Tyler Durden's picture

According to reports in the Greek press, on Monday the head of the Russian Consular service in Athens was found dead in his apartment in downtown Athens. However, unlike the recent assassination of the Russian ambassador in Ankara, according to preliminary reports the death is not the result of a criminal act. 

The 55-year-old Andrei Melanin was found dead on Monday afternoon in his apartment on Herod Atticus Road. Local authorities and a coroner were quickly dispatched to the site. 

Russia Zvezda adds that ghe consul did not go to work and did not respond to calls. Alarmed, his colleagues came to his home and with the help of the police opened the door, which was locked from the inside. At the moment, the police is investigating the incident.

A report in Greek To Vima says that the death appears to be the result of "abnormal causes." However, it adds, the full details of his death will only be known after an autopsy is performed.

There is a major war going on inside US (((intelligence services))).  It is not clear who the players are, but who ever supported Trump seems to be thrashing it out with the (((neocons))) and (((progressivess))).

Lets hope there is lots of payback.

"Abnormal causes.."

Would that be a gun shot or Plutonium poisoning?


Hillarys Server's picture

Abnormal would be if Obama "didn't" do it.

Haha, great article, thanks. Russia has class.

I wouldn't rule out Mossad. They may be at it again to strain US - Russia relationship further.

A COMPLETE LACK of details but the article clearly ensured "the door was locked from the inside" suggesting a higher level activity and cover up.

They can and do crack security systems so why not a simple lock that only keeps honest people honest?  A good set of picks and training would take seconds to enter then relock as you leave.  Why not the US itself considering the Odumbass in chief pushing WWIII?

No. He shot himself 5 times in the back of the head at point-blank range.

he beat himself half to death with a metric torque wrench then finished himself off with a commercial grade russian nailgun. Seems like an airtight case of suicide to me.

Another NATO employee gets whacked?

Dear Shitforbrains

A while ago a NATO employee died in very strange circumstances, shot in the back of the head whilst in his car. The gun was his own and it was found locked away in the glove compartment of his car. This happened around the time the Russian Ambaassador in Turkey was murdered. Coincidence or Payback?

If payback, then another might get whacked - possible, no?

Shitforbrains was for the all caps BTW.

this guy has laid this whole mess out-and it is worse than you think, Cia, "joint terrorism task force" segments of fbi, how comey covers for clintons, homeland sec., state still sending info to clingon foundation, billions from both libya and haiti still funding anti-trump---

plans to keep up the disruption (blm, move on, protests).

The NATO employee who was found shot dead was investigating terrorist funding.

Watch George Webb, he goes into it all, and backs up what he says with evidence.  Not sure what day it was on, but here is a link to today's video.  Even the Trump transition team are watching these (that came out on yesterday's video).

They released an important document? Strange, I'm surprised they didn't shoot up an airport or something to distract attention.

Judging by the page presented in the story, it looks pretty fake to me.

The odd and exactly similar computer generated strike-outs, for example.

Nor does the FBI store files on a website with an .is domain.

Hillary-r.clinton? Don't think so.

My guess is Boob Bait for Bubbas, as the Clintons themselves once said.

That CIA f#cktard Morrel was calling for this sh#t.

That said, it's a complex world with many motives.

Barry doesn't run this, this is a circle within a circle and in the middle stands the Klintons.

George Webb can explain:

francissba's picture

This is bad news.  3 high level Russian diplomats murdered---Syria, London, Athens. One US embassy official shot in Mexico.  Tit for tat is not good diplomacy.  IMO this is Barry and his crew shitting in the swamp.  Putin is being remarkably patient with this son of a bitch.  I've watched presidential transitions for decades and this is over the top.

Yeah, because the only Russian enemies are American.  They haven't pissed off anybody in the middle-east with their bombings in Aleppo.  Or any Ukrainians, no sirree.


Just the US...

Don't you consider it a bit pedantic to make such a fine distinction between the US government and its sponsored franchises?

You have to cut him some slack. Unlike you, he's an adult, and probably has some actual experience in the world and doesn't rely on the internet for all his 'knowledge' and opinions.

Too funny. The basis for this opinion is what you read on the internet.

Go and have a smoke. Will need your evaluation of my words, you will be called.

At least they were invited. U.S. not so much.

I think long distance assassination and regime change are mostly American things.

They even made a TV series, Homeland, to show who fun it is and how cool the people who do it are. Didn't Obama and someone else even come out and announce to the nation "I love that show" to show how cool regime change and assassination and setting up blackmailed puppet regimes in Iran and so on are or something?

"Homeland [was] developed by former '24' producers and writers Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa based on the Israeli series 'Prisoners of War' by Gideon Raff... After serving three years as a paratrooper in the Israeli army, Raff completed a degree in Film at Tel Aviv University... At the 2010 Israeli Academy Awards for Television, Raff won the award for Best Director for 'Prisoners of War'... Raff is openly gay [homosexual], and now lives with his partner in Los Angeles." --Wikipedia

Putin's favorite personal driver was also killed.  If you watchthe video the car was purposefully driven head on into the guy.  Although the driver most likely did not so intend (remote hack as with a few other strange car deaths).

They claim to have caught the guy in Mexico and claim he was a US citizen.  But they the story is that he was deported to the FBI in the US.  Strange.  And the US official may have been a false psyop, seeing as how the guy was in position to simply walk up behind and shoot him in the back but did not.  Instead takes one lone shot as he drove out of the parking structure.  Never any confirmation the guy was actually hit by the bullet.

"I've watched presidential transitions for decades and this is over the top."

I feel helpless and terrified. These assholes do not represent me. I do not want this ill will with Russians, or indeed, anyone. But we are collectively earning it because these asshats are our Leaders.

Edit: Chindit up thread made a great point about Russia having other enemies now.

"help of the police opened the door, which was locked from the inside."

Jee does anyone have a door that locks from the outside? We are fortunate that article put that information in the news release. Otherwise it might lead the readers to think his door locked from the outside. GOOD JOB FELLAS. Clear and concise reporting. lol
