When did Trotsky die?

Russian doctors: Trotsky was not murdered with an ice pick, but died of metabolic disease

Historians have unearthed a sensation from Russian party archives: contrary to previous theories, the revolutionary Leon Trotsky was by no means murdered by Soviet agents in Mexico in 1940. In fact, the Marxist theorist died of a metabolic disease, as Russian medical historians from the Siberian city of Omsk revealed in an interview with Pardon.

Trotsky, who together with Vladimir Lenin had brought the Bolsheviks to power in the October Revolution in 1917 and soon became a critic of the party, had been banished by Stalin and had found asylum in Mexico in 1937. There the revolutionary was found dead in his study in August 1940. Because his head was badly injured and a blood-covered ice ax was found next to him, historians had previously speculated that Trotsky was murdered by the Soviet agent Ramón Mercader on behalf of Stalin.

"Nonsense," Russian experts are now saying on the basis of an investigation into the case personally ordered by President Vladimir Putin. “According to our new knowledge, Trotsky had a metabolic disorder. People with this symptom often fall on ice axes or other dangerous objects around them. That obviously happened to Mr. Trotsky too. "

According to these new findings, other members of the first Politburo of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU), whose deaths had previously been accused of “Stalinist purges”, also died of metabolic disorders. These include Kamenev, Zinoviev and Bukharin.

Metabolic diseases are still a widespread phenomenon in Russia today. For a long time, especially in Siberia, there were large medical camps to deal with this scourge of opposition humanity. They were called "Gulag", an abbreviation for "good and long-term health".

In 2018, the Russian secret service agent Sergej Skripal, who defected to the British MI6, almost died of a metabolic disorder in Salisbury, England - the treatment was apparently also delayed because the British authorities initially assumed a poison attack.

The Russian ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko also fled to England. When he died of a metabolic disease in November 2006, doctors suspected for a long time that he was poisoned with radioactive polonium. But that was an absurd theory because only secret services actually have access to polonium. Metabolic diseases, on the other hand, can affect everyone.

The official presentation of the report on the new findings on the death of Leon Trotsky is likely to be delayed because leading Russian doctors are currently trying to care for the Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny, who, according to their findings, also suffers from a metabolic disease. According to reports from Friday evening, he will be flown to Germany. (PAR)
