How Did Stalin Die?

On March 1, 1953, after an all-night dinner with four high government officials, this 73 year-old man collapsed at his house. The next morning he was found unconscious on the floor, yet no doctors were summoned until the next morning. Four days later, he was reported to have died of a stroke. The official story was that he had been drunk at dinner, his companions presumed that he had fallen out of bed, and that the autopsy showed that he had died of a hemorrhage into his brain.

His last supper was with four members of his Politburo. All became Prime Minister. The Chief of Secret Police, Lavrenti Beria, was the interim successor who at year’s end, was killed by a firing squad. Georgi M. Malenkov took over as his successor; Nikolai Bulganin became Prime Minister in 1955 and Nikita S. Khrushchev became Prime Minister in 1958.

The medical account of Joseph Stalin's death, presented to the Communist Party Central Committee in June 1953, reported that he became ill in the early hours of March 2, a full day after he actually suffered a stroke. STRANGE.

The official autopsy report was hidden for the next 50 years. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the report was released and showed that one guard reported that Beria had called shortly after he was found, and was ordered to say nothing about his illness. The autopsy showed that he had extensive hemorrhaging into his stomach, skin, and other organs as well as brain. It also stated that his Politburo colleagues denied him medical help in the first hours of his illness, when he could have been saved.

Why Did He Die?
At that time, Russia was preparing to accuse the United States of a plot to destroy much of Moscow with a new nuclear weapon, then to launch an invasion of Soviet territory along the Chinese border. The Soviet military was preparing to attack the United States’ Pacific Coast. A few months prior to his death, Stalin invented “the Doctors’ Plot”, claiming that Kremlin doctors planned to kill top Communist leaders. In January 1953, he claimed that conspirators, led by Jews under the United States’ secret direction, were trying to kill him and destroy the Soviet Union. In February 1953 he ordered construction of four giant prison camps in Kazakhstan, Siberia and the Arctic north.

On March 1, 1953, two weeks after the camps were ordered built and two weeks before the accused doctors were to go on trial, he died of a “brain hemorrhage”. One month later, the doctors previously accused of trying to kill him were exonerated and the case against them was called an invention of the secret police. No doctors were deported east. In the 1930s, Stalin starved more than 20 million of his own people in Georgia. He was paranoid and repeatedly invented millions of enemies that he killed.

Do You Know What Killed Him?
One book, Stalin’s Last Crime, claims that a study of long-secret Soviet records supports the theory that Stalin was poisoned with warfarin, a tasteless and colorless blood thinner that is used as rat poison, to avert a war with the United States. Strokes do not cause bleeding into every tissue in his body. A single dose of warfarin was the most likely cause of the brain and stomach hemorrhages that killed Stalin.
