State Department Urges Coroner To Keep Russian UN Ambassador's Cause-Of-Death Secret

Tyler Durden's picture

Following the unexpected death of 65-year-old Russian ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin, conspiracy theorists were stirred up as the ongoing Russophobic Deep State war combined with the deaths of nine Russian diplomats in the last year raised many coincident-questioning eyebrows. Now, as The Hill reports, pouring further fuel on that fire, the State Department asked the New York Medical Examiner not to publicly release information about Churkin's cause of death.

"In order to comply with international law and protocol, the New York City Law Department has instructed the Office of Chief Medical Examiner to not publicly disclose the cause and manner of death of Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations,"  Office of Chief Medical Examiner spokesman Julie Bolcer said, according to New York Times reporter Michael Grynbaum.


"As outlined in formal requests from the United States Department of State, Ambassador Churkin's diplomatic immunity survives his death. Further questions concerning this matter should be directed to the United States Department of State."

Initial reports suggested that there was no foul play involved in the incident and that Churkin died from cardiac arrest, but, as a reminder, Churkin was not alone among Russian diplomats who died of 'heart attacks':

1. You probably remember Russia's Ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov — he was assassinated by a police officer at a photo exhibit in Ankara on December 19.


2. On the same day, another diplomat, Peter Polshikov, was shot dead in his Moscow apartment. The gun was found under the bathroom sink but the circumstances of the death were under investigation. Polshikov served as a senior figure in the Latin American department of the Foreign Ministry.


3. Russia's Ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, died in New York this past week. Churkin was rushed to the hospital from his office at Russia's UN mission. Initial reports said he suffered a heart attack, and the medical examiner is investigating the death, according to CBS.


4. Russia's Ambassador to India, Alexander Kadakin, died after a "brief illness January 27, which The Hindu said he had been suffering from for a few weeks.


5. Russian Consul in Athens, Greece, Andrei Malanin, was found dead in his apartment January 9. A Greek police official said there was "no evidence of a break-in." But Malanin lived on a heavily guarded street. The cause of death needed further investigation, per an AFP report. Malanin served during a time of easing relations between Greece and Russia when Greece was increasingly critiqued by the EU and NATO.


6. Ex-KGB chief Oleg Erovinkin, who was suspected of helping draft the Trump dossier, was found dead in the back of his car December 26, according to The Telegraph. Erovinkin also was an aide to former deputy prime minister Igor Sechin, who now heads up state-owned Rosneft.

If we go back further than 60 days...

7. On the morning of U.S. Election Day, Russian diplomat Sergei Krivov was found unconscious at the Russian Consulate in New York and died on the scene. Initial reports said Krivov fell from the roof and had blunt force injuries, but Russian officials said he died from a heart attack. BuzzFeed reports Krivov may have been a Consular Duty Commander, which would have put him in charge of preventing sabotage or espionage.


8. In November 2015, a senior adviser to Putin, Mikhail Lesin, who was also the founder of the media company RT, was found dead in a Washington hotel room according to the NYT. The Russian media said it was a "heart attack," but the medical examiner said it was "blunt force injuries."


9. If you go back a few months prior in September 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s driver was killed too in a freak car accident while driving the Russian President’s official black BMW  to add to the insanity.

If you include these three additional deaths that’s a total of nine Russian officials that have died over the past 2 years that's Aaron Kesel knows of - he notes there could be more.

So why is the State Department now trying to keep Churkin's cause of death from the public?

Am I a frickin' retard?




I show the 6 Russian diplomat deaths in 60 days to people and they look at me like everything is normal.  Then they say something amazing like, "There's not enough evidence one way or another."


Am I completely insane to believe that we are already experiencing the opening scenes of WWIII?

OT - I thought y'all might like to know a little about Xythras:

THIS is Xythras:

He posted on Stormfront with a link to his site, in which he mentions he's from Barcelona. (View the cached version of the page)

Then, there's Twitter, which he used once, to link a blog: (places the name to the username here, and the blog link is to Jim Rogers, which shows a common-interest connection to ZH)

Finally, there's Linked-in:

There's more, but I broke a few laws getting that'd be a shame if it fell into the wrong hands.

I've asked him to stop spamming, several times. Even gave him a few free pieces of advice, which companies usually pay me, I tried being nice about it.

oh, c'mon now, fellas, it doesn't have to  be something sinister. maybe it's something completely ridiculous, and we're doing the rooskis a favor by keeping cause of death in the dark. who really needs to know about 'accidental death via autoerotic asphyxiation that also involved a stun gun to the nuts and an enormous butt plug'?

Since there's been so much Russia hysteria, unless he choked on a dick, I think the public has the right to know his cause of death.

Another nail gun suicide?

....shot himself in the chest seven times with 2½ -inch finish nails from a nail gun before firing a fatal nail into his head. Police found him dressed for work, sitting in his car in the garage and with the motor running.

@ Hedgeless:

"Police found him dressed for work, sitting in his car in the garage and with the motor running..."

If it was a suicide, why not just run a piece of tubing from the exhaust into the's painless, and the 'victim' simply goes to sleep.

If it was a Paslode nailgun, he'd need a fair amount of pressure to get the safety retracted before pulling the trigger. I could see him being able to do that 1-3 times, maybe, but not 7, followed by a headshot. Shock would set in quickly.

shovelhead's picture

Still the record holder in the Amazing Suicides category.

After 7 in the chest he decided he'd better quit fucking around because it was starting to hurt.

We all know it was most likely see aye ehh's heart attack dart or whatever.

Please DO release it.  


The truth is out there

Ms No's picture

If I remember right, during the Church Committee they said that was untraceable, and that was a damn long time ago.  Maybe that's why the Russians didn't bother going and grabbing him and doing there own autopsy right away.  They knew it would be done well and they wouldn't find anything.  They have major dirt on this government if it's needed.  They will wait and see what happens with Trump.

So, should we expect quiet retaliation(s) from the Russians?  McCain would be a logical candidate, as would Morrell.  Im assuming McCain is mortal (human) there's that.

People may misinterpret the "natural" cause of death, just because it included accidentally injected drugs that stop peoples hearts. Subsequently, falling multiple times on a blunt object, finishing with 2 accidental bullets to the head.

The State Department wants it secret? Hmmmmmm? I wonder if the CIA could keep its Obama-Clinton sponsors safe if Putin and the FSB smelled blood?

Russia should release it then.

They let the Jew York medical examiners office autopsy their ambassador after Scalia and the general history and behavior of this government?  WTF over?

Blankone's picture

I am only going by my interpretation of the article - It appears that US officials, more precisely the jew controlled New York City officials conducted the autopsy and investigation and they had first access and control of the body during this time.

I would like confirmation that is or is not the case, with references.  Because if Putin allowed those people to control the body and investigtion he once again is a total idiot.  Just like when he turned over the black boxes for the passanger plane shot down over EUke instead of inviting ALL other countries to come had witness the accessing of the boxes and to have the data downloaded to all.  Instead Putin got on his knees and gave it all to the west and Maylasia was not hand to this day never has been given the raw data.

It is almost like the same people have significant control over the US govt AND the Russian govt.. 

TheReplacement's picture

Whatever it was, natural or not, it was probably untraceable to the company.  As such, Putin could only look foolish if the Russians pushed it too much.  In this case, it is probably better to be passive, look calm, assume the worst, and plan for revenge.

The Globalists are murdering Russian diplomats and likely many other Russian elites as well.  They're pulling out all of the stops.  I remember that several years ago Russia banned using computers for secret information, they went back to paper and typewriters.  Russia has likely gone dark to the intelligence agencies, so they are resorting to almost open warfare in desperation.  Russia must fall if their dream of ruling the world as despots is to be realized.

BarkingCat's picture

Russia is not going to fall.

Those are some tough people, especially when pushed against the wall.

Blankone's picture

It really was not that long ago when Russia (then called Soviets before switching back to "Russia") fell.  Russia was looted of it's assets and maybe it's gold as well. 

Bay of Pigs's picture

They have plenty of gold pal.

RedDwarf's picture

I didn't say Russia was going to fall.  I said they must fall if the Globalists are to achieve their goals.  The most likely out come in my mind is that the Globalists will be the ones to faill. not Russia.  The Globalists have overreached too far too fast.  They'll go the way of the previous people who have tried to take over the whole world.

Did they illegally embalm him immediately like they did Scalia?

I'm no expert, but experts have told me that embalming makes the search for certain toxins or drugs very difficult or impossible, depending on the substance.

Satan's only power is to call using all kinds of media. Most people respond out of pride rather than obey the Creator. It's the Divine garbage collection scheme. Most people make the worst deal they could make. What a waste of the human mind! And for what?
